Pros

Little oversight, freedom to control hours.

Cons

No help, all sales talk, poor management, wasteful meetings.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn how to give new associates qualified leads, or at least help them with admin/ marketing. New Associates/ Consultants will always fail with the lack of support given. A meeting is not help.

    I have been working at AXA Advisors

    Pros

    flexible schedule, ability to choose your joint work partner and decide commission splits amongst yourselves

    Cons

    Everyone lies to you, about everything. Start-up costs are never completely disclosed, same goes for on-going expenses (about $450 per month, not including health insurance costs and any marketing you want to do). IF you actually make any money, the commission statements are impossible to read, and costs are deducted -often ending in NEGATIVE commissions that go into "recovery" that they will send lawyers after you to regain. There are SO MANY negatives here, it's rediculous. Unless you have a pre-established book of business you KNOW you can work, DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME HERE!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay a true base salary, have SOME sort of structured training program; mandate pairing your senior agents with newbies so they can actually learn something

    I have been working at AXA Advisors

    Pros

    some of the people are nice. AXA pays well at the upper levels. Benefits are good but expensive.

    Cons

    most of the good managers were forced out in 2007. there is no career path unless you have a prior attachment to the current management Hard work is rarely rewarded. Thinking out of the box is not encouraged at all. Staff is treated badly. We should keep our heads down and just be happy we have a job. If we don't like it....then leave....there are plenty of people out of work to take your place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop running the broker dealer by the buddy system. Reward accomplishments not friendships
