Local branch managers make/break your experience. Mine was great.

I worked at AXA Advisors as a contractor (more than a year)

Pros

Great training for consulting process. Very systematic in weekly sales meetings- not just ra ra sessions; focused on helping the producer. Fair payout if you're willing to work. Great opportunity for those who push themselves.

Cons

They require you to have a minimum percentage of your production be with proprietary products- thankfully they have some pretty good products. Some in upper management get to pushing the company Kool-Aid in a heavy handed way. If you stick to doing right by the client you'll be okay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Too proprietary product focused... it's a dinosaur business model. Also, not a single advisor, not even the 30 year veterans, were able to read commission statements.

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

    Pros

    People are motivated and really want to make money

    Cons

    Management is inept, no support is given whatsoever, you need to fight to earn the right to get paid a salary - and then they ridicule you if you try and choose it, management is clearly trying to just suck people dry and move on

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rethink the entire way you do business
