Advisors that are top notch, usually big players in their former firms and want a firm that they don't have to take BS.

    I have been working at AXA Advisors

    Pros

    Unlimited growth potential, because you determine how much work you put into the growth of your book for business.

    Cons

    As a new or young advisor, this position has little to no salary which can make it one of the most difficult jobs to begin with no experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    offer a competitive salary for advisors within their first 5 years of business

    I have been working at AXA Advisors

    Pros

    You control your schedule. You control your career growth. You control your income. Tremendous long term earnings opportunity.

    Great client interaction and a great platform to help client achieve their goals.

    Great teamwork and great people. I'm proud to work for AXA and feel rewarded for my hard work that is paying off.

    Cons

    High stress level at beginning of career.

    Overworked and underpaid for the first 2-5 years of your career.

    May have to cold call when you start unless you have a strong support group of people who are open to doing business with you and/or provide you with referrals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The industry flaw is how challenging it is for new associates to begin their career. Associates need help financially when they start and if they are not adequatly capitalized, they may fail.

    Technology could be improved.
