I worked at AXA Advisors full-time for less than a year

Pros

Paid (minumum wage) four week training

Cons

Sitting eight hours a day training only on a computer.
Phone calling eight hours a day required.
only one eight hour day to have managing principal go on appointments with me in three weeks.
Too many agents (22) for one managing principal to work with.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get more managers to help train agents.
Do not shout at agents when they ask a question about the Gryphon system (Do not call lists). It is important to follow compliance and avoid a $11,000 fine to the agent and repercussions to the company.

    I have been working at AXA Advisors full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    As an employee, you enjoy a regular schedule that is also flexible based on agreement between yourself and the FPs you support. You get to know many people at different stages in their career and learn how best to help them, and in turn the company, do better. The company has lots of internal opportunities for advancement and development.

    Cons

    Unless you are in a main branch office, your ability to advance within the company in the same location may be limited. You may be the only employee in the area, so when conferences and other employee meetings take place, you are unable to attend because it is your responsibility to "man the fort" at your local office. You also need to play a balancing game with the FPs, as you want to not be perceived as playing favorites.
