    I worked at AXA Advisors full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can make a lot of money if you are truly dedicated and passionate about the job (or about the money). There are some cool people that work here as well and I've made some really awesome friends.
    -Certain managers are very good and you can learn a lot about sales from them.
    -Company trips if you qualify (and want to spend your vacations with people you see everyday.)

    Cons

    All commission, you WILL cold call unless you have some connection somewhere dealing with municipalities for example becasue you have an in there. They may try to tell you in the interview that you don't have to but really almost everyone who starts thats what you are doing.
    -The company does not give you much to work with. They don't give you leads, you have to find them yourself for the most part. They don't give you a computer, or any perks such as free food etc.
    -Long hours are expected even though they tell you your are the CEO of your business...makes zero sense. Especially since you're on 100% commission.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Hire people you know will succeed, not just any person because even if they fail you can make a couple bucks off of them.
    -Be truthful about the job. Don't have kids going to study for the series 7 for two months and come in there first day and quit because they were misled
