Pros

Lots of Benefits, Lots of Upside if are good at sales and want tobe a financial planner. Great Health, Dental, 401k, commission structure, stock options, pension & indpendence. People earn anywhere from $25,000 to $500,000 plus.

Cons

Company owns your client base. Company claims as being an independent but pushes you to sell proprietary products via commission structure. Not very team oriented environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Should give District Managers more incentive to keep reps for long term vs. inheriting their book/client base when leave.

    I have been working at AXA Advisors full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Almost complete schedule flexibility. Lots of interaction with a variety of individuals that you are able to learn from and also educate.

    Cons

    I am comfortable with the idea of production based compensation. The problem is when you have absolutely no control over your level of production! When it comes to money and savings, the more people you meet with does not necessarily translate to higher compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is something wrong with the current contracts if you analyze how many people are not able to stay with the company after going off of base salary. And when an entire group has low production, don't blame it on the individuals within the group. Obviously, there are other factors at play.

    I worked at AXA Advisors

    Pros

    Management is understanding and capable. Lots of room to move around and gain exposure in a difficult financial services industry.

    Cons

    Financial services is a really difficult industry to get established in. I would suggest buying a book of business, starting from scratch can be daunting.
