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

    Pros

    High Earning Upside, Office located in highly competitive area

    Cons

    Work-Life balance is terrible for incredibly low pay initially. The base salary + commission structure is a scam, and the hiring managers are known for lying about pay structure and work expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Be Transparent. Quite Lying.

    Pros

    You can be very successful. If you don't mind being mislead when needed, enjoy manipulating people, contributing to a pyramid pay scheme and using people (including your "team" and clients) like tools, but work hard; you'll get all the help you could ever want.

    Cons

    If you're determined to to have integrity and your sole drive is to truly help people without being a stereotypical sleazy salesperson; you can still be successful, but don't expect help and be prepared to work even harder. If you don't, there are plenty of warm bodies stacked behind you.

    Advice to Management

    If the way you do business works for you, then do it. You should be more up-front with candidates, but I would assume that doesn't suit the business model.

    I have been working at AXA Advisors full-time

    Pros

    they will hire almost anyone

    Cons

    Its a recruiting business that sells life insurance.

    Advice to Management

    stop hiring new people like we aren't humans.

    you are hurting everyone there by focusing on recruiting rather than actually developing advisors. Its a recruiting business that sells life insurance.

    Invest in your employees!
