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

Pros

AXA Advisors is a great place to learn the business and build a thriving financial practice, covering planning, asset management, and risk management. The company provides a combination of online learning, classroom learning, and mentoring. The benefits include commissions, stock options, 401K, and pension plan. Successful advisers typically make over $100,000 after three to four years.

Cons

The company makes clear that it is looking for people who are entrepreneurial. This job is not easy. Fewer than 20% of the people that start at AXA Advisors (similar to industry avg.) can make it a career. Advisers after six months most pay E&O insurance, software licensing fee, etc. It adds up, if you're not making money.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

AXA needs to improve it's technology. Getting approval for advertising, etc. can be very cumbersome.

    Pros

    Excellent company and benefits. Also good training.

    Cons

    Commision only with no salary. This does not allow high retention among the new sales force.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give new representatives a small salary for at least one year to increase retention.
