    I worked at AXA Advisors as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers and a nice environment. You can receive a lot of experience if you put in extra hard work.

    Cons

    Interns do a lot of clerical work: research data, make spreadsheets, printing, etc. It's also a non paid position. If you want to continue the path as a financial advisor, you learn that it takes a very long time to earn a good income.

    I worked at AXA Advisors full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule(depending on your manager and how long you've been there), Potential for good income(but not very common)

    Cons

    Poor training, No base salary, Poor benefits(no 401k match), Force you to sell to your family and friends, Have you tell prospects you sell outside products but base your benefits requirement and bonus on AXA Equitable proprietary products, Have you sell primarily life insurance and annuities regardless of clients best interest, every expense is paid for by the advisor including but not limited to: computer rental(required), Errors and Omissions insurance(required), cubicle or office(required), office supplies, personal office equipment(printer, additional monitor, etc), postage on work related documents, etc. No one knows who the company is so you have to sell them on using you and the company. Claim you get several resources from company but most are no longer legitimate since they have been recycled so many times by employees that have quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Coach your employees instead of badgering them when they are doing poorly.
