    I have been working at AXA

    Pros

    Scheduling flexibility in the advisor role, some useful tools for financial planning are provided, company offers its advisors the opportunity to go on salary early

    Cons

    The service center is a joke, the technology there is pathetic, AXA always has a hand in your pocket stealing half your paycheck

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on providing opportunity for new advisors. Create marketing plans that go beyond "sell things to friends and family."

    I have been working at AXA as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with... but, unless you have access to prospects ready to sign up quickly, you can not get off the ground.

    Cons

    There is no security at AXA. You build a book and miss a sales quota, you're out!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Discontinue Commission structure and implement Paid Salaries. A more developed and dedicated, high quality adviser group would be the result. Then again, as I was told... < I know nothing>.

    It's gonna get worse.

    I worked at AXA full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity for self motivated advisor.

    Cons

    Lacks a robust training program and is a sink or swim environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have the managers focus solely on the advisors. They are too split between managing and making their own sales goals.
