    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at AXA Advisors full-time (More than 10 years)


    1) culture is fantastic.
    2) great processes and approach to financial planning
    3) skilled and ethical advisors
    4) wonderful mentors


    high cost of living in SF and it takes time before you make money in the industry with passing licensing exams and building a niche market. Definitely a career and not a job!

    Advice to Management

    Pay a higher salary option. Although I came here not wanting the salary I think for new associates from college could use a higher salary in an expensive place to live.
