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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

    I worked at AXA Advisors full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It was a pleasure and honor working for AXA. I learned so much about good leadership, teamwork and professionalism from my experience there, and will always hold the branch and especially the executive team I worked under in the highest regard. I am so grateful for the opportunities this job provided me, both professionally and personally. Getting to know work with so many amazing people was one of the best parts of working there.

    Cons

    I honestly have no negative comments to share.

    Advice to Management

    I wish you and the rest of the branch all the best in the future!

    I have been working at AXA Advisors full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have been with AXA for about 8 years now and could not be happier. Not only do we have a great culture (won first place in Hawaii Business Magazine's best place to work survey for 2017 and 2018!) but performance wise have been doing great as well (won top branch in the country for the company in 2016 and 2017!). The training program is second to none and is focused on making sure that advisors get the mentorship and support that they need in all aspects of their business.

    Cons

    None that I can think of
