    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity for self motivated advisor.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Culture, Benefits, work-life balance, There are opportunities to advance, and there are varied environments to work within the company with opportunities at all levels. Excellence is rewarded.

    Cons

    Frequent organization changes, leadership changes and then cultural changes as leadership shifts. Compensation can be at the lower side, however the benefits package is strong. Organization tends to be thinly staffed so the workload can be challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Expand tele-commuting and work from home options for appropriate roles, promote a positive culture.

    Pros

    Phenomenal benefits and job security. Even in a depression, AXA could afford to maintain its employees.

    Cons

    No feasible opportunity for development; so it stunts progres. decisions tend not to be made with the employee in mind.

    Advice to Management

    none; i make a habit of not giving advice where it wouldn't be received.

    Pros

    Access to many different products to sell to clients

    Cons

    Management is terrible, and they keep a lot from you during the interview.

    At the end of the day, this job is what you make of it. Once you learn they can't fire you if you hit your quotas, you can really starting doing things on our own.

    Some managers will call you late at night and will micro manage.

    Pros

    Freedom to come and go as you please.

    Cons

    Worked in public schools at a time when there is layoffs and no new hires. Supposed Orphan Lists to work to make money and build book of business is not as prosperous as it was made to be. The will put anyone in management. Has one of the lowest comp rates in industry and there are fees for everything including using social media.

    Advice to Management

    The 403b market is dead. Need to find ways of helping new advisors et and retain business. Hire and pay dedicated managers like other firms. Having branch managers that's are also advisors does not help anone.


  11. Stay away from AXA!!!

    Pros

    You can leave the crappy Job whenever you want.

    Cons

    Sales focused environment. Company does not train you properly. There are many conflicts of interest. Pay is terrible when you start. There is not much room to actually progress your career. These are some of the many dozen cons of this terrible company/job.

    Advice to Management

    Be actual managers. And actually strive to improve the employee.
