    I have been working at AXA Advisors

    Pros

    Like others have said, it is a good place to get licensed I suppose. It is a one sided sales approach, lots of insurance. old, stable company that is helpful in the tumultuous times.

    Cons

    When I left, they are trying to collect on almost $20,000 of commissions I earned because I did not stay through the life of the insurance product.
    Do NOT, I repeat Do NOT take advance commissions, which is industry standard. I can not imagine that people have to write checks to leave other firms.
    Policies are clear as mud.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even my manager did not understand the comp plan, and we did not have a BOM to help clearify the plan.

    Slow giant insurance firm, whose main interest is selling life insurance.

    I have been working at AXA Advisors

    Pros

    Flexibility, Licensing, Insurance, Large, Ads

    Cons

    Great place to get licensed, but not the best place for guidance. I feel the company's recommendations to the client are not always in line with what I would do for the client, if I were able. The company has many difference SMA platiforms like but very little training on each of them. Furthermore, they say you are independent, but really they want you to sell AXA products. Compliance wants to know just about EVERYTHING about you.... like do you have a baseball card collection, are on you on your HOA's board.... What is the brand of motor oil you use....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let's focus on being financial planners... NOT INSURANCE AGENTS.... Maybe she should brand AXA Advisors more and less AXA Equitible branding
