Don't start your career here!

Financial Advisor Trainee (Current Employee) New York, NY

ProsSponsorship for Series 7, Series 66 and Life, Accident and Health exams.

ConsDishonest management
Unknown fees- $400 to rent a desk every month + other fees like using AXA's website which they won't tell you in the hiring process
incompetent HR-took over 6 weeks for one HR person to process my information so I could take my Series 7
Little to know training-In less you consider tactics of harassing people on the phone training
You can't make a long distance call or print a piece of paper without AXA charging you
If you sell brokerage you have to pay ALL of your own transaction fees
Get ready to fork over 50% of your commissions to your supervisor when you're starting
NO SALARY starting out-naturally when you're starting you'll need to pass your exams and build your book so don't count on AXA to get you through those first couple of months. Just so you know the average for starting brokers is anywhere from 300-1000 salary while training.
They'll take anyone with a pulse off the street and hire them
They're so desperate they reach out to people that have quit and try to get them back (I've probably received about 10+ phone calls from recruiters since I stopped working there).
Also...before you start working there just google "AXA Advsors" you'll probably hear more of the same, but check out how many law suite they've been involved in.
