    I have been working at AXA Advisors as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    At AXA Advisors, you salary is unlimited. The opportunities to choose a career path and create your own Financial Planning practice are a cut above the other Financial Planning Firms out there. The training and support you receive at AXA Erie are the reasons I have been successful, and why I would recommend this opportunity to any of my friends and family.

    Cons

    The hours are long at the beginning of your career, and the job can be stressful. If you are not a driven self-starter, this is not the place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

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

    Pros

    It is definitely a difficult career, however, I have worked at multiple firms and AXA truly gives you the best possible chance to succeed. They offer a tremendous amount of support and the training is far superior to any other firm I've seen. It's a tough career to get started in, and it does take true hard work. But if you make it, the lifestyle is second to none.

    Cons

    LIke I said above, it is difficult in the first few years (as is any type of start-up business). You have to be willing to put in the hard work and their will certainly be missed cases/cancelled meetings, etc. It's not a job you can do the minimum and succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. The culture is awesome at the office. Couldn't think of a better place to work or with a better group of people.

    Pros

    At AXA Advisors you work in a very challenging yet rewarding industry. You are surrounding by a team of managers who are involved daily with your training and are always willing to assist with whatever it takes to help you become successful. The unlimited income potential is there for those willing to make the necessary commitment of time to achieve this goal. And the other benefits are outstanding.

    Cons

    Although may not be a con, must be willing to devout majority of time ( days, evenings, weekends) to building your practice; not an easy task, however if willing to make the necessary sacrifices you will be greatly rewarded.

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

    Pros

    You're not alone in anything you do. AXA won't just make you an employee and throw you to the wolves. They have a great training program and we all work as a team. Not to mention the great atmosphere in the office. Managers are great, with training and help with case prep, I couldn't ask for much more. Great group of people in the office make it a nice place to come into every and they are like a second family

    Cons

    It takes a couple months to start up with little pay so if you can manage that, the benefits that follow are great.

    Advice to Management

    Management can keep doing what they're doing. Here in Erie we have a couple of the top managers in the country so it's nice to have some valuable resources to go to for anything.

    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.
