    Pros

    Built for a top performer that is looking to maximize there impact, independence and income.

    Cons

    If you don't have the discipline to show up without having a 'start time' then don't do it. The independence is great, but the main reason for fall out. If you like control, check it out.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire the right person for the right market. It works.

    I worked at AXA Advisors full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1) People are very friendly.
    2) Many people there are willing to help you if you ask.
    3) They are very upfront about licensing costs and reimbursements after being contracted.

    Cons

    1) You have to pay for all licensing upfront (Roughly around $1200 in total)
    2) You have to be fully licensed to be fully able to make money on all of the products sold.
    Commission was not fully explained to begin with, therefore, after being able to bring clients for certain products, the truth was revealed and it was usually less from what was actually told in the beginning.
    3) This is a 100% Commission based job
    4) After getting fully licensed and receiving the proper amount of clients, that's when you're able to be contracted and make a salary (Even though after al of this happened, I was recommended not to accept the salary)

    Advice to Management

    Be upfront with everyone from the beginning instead of having someone be told that salary is a possibility and once they're contracted then telling them that it is not worth taking the salary.
