    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 have been working at AXA Advisors part-time

    Pros

    Flexible hours. You can schedule your work around what works best for you. Lots of growth potential, which is entirely dependent on how much you're willing to work for it. Friendly and supportive environment.

    Cons

    There's no formalized summer intern position, experience depends on who you work under. Most likely an unpaid internship.

    Advice to Management

    Formalize a summer intern position.

    Independence, Impact and Income are some of the greatest benefits this career provides. It also encourages you to be involved in your community not only as a person but as a business owner too.

    Call Center Support due to time difference.


  7. "Exciting, Educational Opportunity"

    I worked at AXA Advisors as an intern

    Pros

    It is an easy way to connect with top-level financial advisors at AXA.

    Cons

    It's only one day - it's not the typical internship. Hence, it's not the ideal for if you are looking for some sort of academic-level reference contact for a project. You do have to apply and be accepted, which shows that it does take skill to perform this one-day internship. So it is definitely worth the one-day event.

    Advice to Management

    Awesome event! Hope to see this continue for future interns to come.

    The culture and environment in the office is great. Good work/life balance. The ability to write your own paycheck.

    Cons

    Hard work with long hours. However, you get what you put in.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

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

    Pros

    AXA has been a great company for me. I would not have made it in this industry if it was not for AXA's training and mentorship program. AXA has continued to support me through my development as an advisor and also now as a manager. AXA is always looking for new innovative ways to do business which will benefit the client and the advisor and make business more efficient.

    AXA is also a big family. Our leadership has experience from the bottom to the top as most of them all started as an entry level financial consultant and they have worked their way to the top. This shows in their attentiveness to the concerns of the work force and in their ability to make changes when necessary. Our Chief Sales Officer has a saying, "As a company we win when the client wins first and the advisor second. If the client does not win and the advisor does not win then it was not a good deal."

    I cannot speak highly enough for everything AXA has done for me and my family and everything I have been able to do for my clients and my community because of AXA.

    Cons

    The start-up process can be daunting but AXA is there to help.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
