    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.

    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.

    Pros

    AXA had good benefits when I worked there. In fact, that's pretty much the only reason I stayed. I loved the holidays off and the vacation time. The medical benefits were pretty good also.

    Cons

    AXA is an okay place to work if you're just looking for employment but not if you're looking for advancement. The company trains and promotes only those employees whom they like. AXA is BIG on favoritism. As long as you kiss up to the managers you'll get what you want; but don't expect hard work, integrity and character to benefit you in any way, shape or form. I deeply regret having wasted so many years with the company. I was overworked and underpaid the entire time I was employed, but I stayed a/c the benefits and in hopes things would improve...which they never did. Even though I always reported to work on time, put in overtime when asked with minimal complaining, did my job well with no salary increase worth mentioning, I was set up by my manager and team leader so that I could be terminated because of my age....I'm approaching retirement. They couldn't find any fault in my performance so they had to fabricate something.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so biased in your decisions when it comes to promotions and terminations. You have let go valuable employees just because they were at or nearing retirement age. You'd rather keep young, trifling, money hungry employees that are always goofing off and couldn't care less about the future of the company and terminate hard working, committed employees because they're older or you just don't like them. You need to learn to prioritize and do what's best for the company. It's hard working, dedicated employees that have made the company what it is today.

    Pros

    The people are great, because we're all in the same boat. We all hate our jobs, so there's plenty of people to sympathize with.

    Cons

    Not organized. No one ever knew what they were doing, and there was no one to turn to when you needed clear direction.

    Advice to Management

    Management had clear favorites, and those were the people given the most attention and were always the ones given new projects and opportunities.

    Pros

    OK Salary, co workers pleasant,

    Cons

    New department (4 years old) is in state of total confusion, poor or no training on key systems needed to perform job, performance measurements based on faulty data. Position is NOT as what was described.

    Advice to Management

    Better, specific training. Currently more like a "throw it against the wall and see what sticks" process.
