    AXA is truly a "family" of people who actually care about each other and push each other on to success. Along with taking care of their clients and employees, they also do so much good in the community.

    I have been working at AXA Advisors full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    At the Cleveland Branch the team atmosphere is the biggest pro to working here. All the senior advisers are willing to help you start your practice. My district manager has weekly training and goes to meetings with you to help you learn how to interact with prospects. "50% of something is better than 100% of nothing" The only thing you are selling prospects is yourself! If you are doing anything else, this company is not for you. AXA gives you the opportunity to provide your clients with so many products to match all their needs.

    Cons

    You have to prove yourself before signing a contract, which can be difficult for some.

    Innovation is essential to growth. Continue to keep an open ear to your employees as you weigh historical data from tenured employees to the new ideas of your newer employees.
