    I have been working at AXA Advisors full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I joined AXA to learn a new business and take on a new challenge. The company has great benefits and I recommend taking advantage of the stock purchase plan.

    Cons

    The office rent is high but it is in a beautiful building so justified. Some new advisors have complained about lack of guidance from management. There are plenty of other advisors that will help you if you do not hit it off with your manager.

    Advice to Management

    Stay true and do not sugar coat the reality of job. Most that are attracted to the position are intelligent and will appreciate an honest approach.
