    Pros

    The people you work with will be some of your best friends. The culture amongst the people are great. Management is also very good

    Cons

    The system is designed so you fail. You won't make any money. Don't let them sell you this position. Take it if you have to but use it to get your licenses and then get out as quickly as possible

    Advice to Management

    Care about your staff and set them up to succeed.

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Not much more.

    Cons

    Being lied to. Paying to go to work.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying and start paying. Advancing commission only to have it recovered after employment is unprofessional. Not paying earned premium is illegal yet AXA still does it.

    I have been working at AXA Advisors full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Access to the LPL investment platform. The firm has a ton of potential. There is also a ton of changes (email platform, planning software, contract agreement) that are making it a challenge to efficiently focus on the client base.

    Cons

    The firm is too fragmented. There is no dedicated approach to advising.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what kind of firm you want to be in the future, and communicate that to your advisors

    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.
