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

    Pros

    Having worked in the RBG (Retirement Benefits Group) for just about 2 years now, I have learned an incredible amount most of which I probably would not have learned had it not been for accepting a position here at AXA. When you join, you join a family. This job takes discipline and perseverance and you have a team of other advisors that will push you to do your best. If you are the type of person who loves a great community that provides the resources you need as well as having the opportunity to meet and help someone new every day this is a great place.

    The people and culture is incredible.
    Experienced advisors are always open and willing to help out newer advisors.
    No shortage of training.
    Always potential for joint work.
    Many opportunities for advancement (Management, Producer Groups, etc.)
    Flexible work schedule. (Later in Career)

    Cons

    Though many training's are offered some tend to become repetitive.
    Credentialing and Licensing is a long process and expensive.
    If in the RBG there is a lot of driving.
    Have to work long hours and weekends early on to succeed.
    Pay is variable, never guaranteed a paycheck

    Advice to Management

    Work on setting up training's that will aid in the building of a business (i.e. do's and dont's, having experienced advisors give their experiences, etc.)
    Keep Training Different! Many training's are extremely repetitive.
    Focus more on coaching DSF to walk before having them go into a full on sprint.

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

    Pros

    Very rewarding career. I wake up every day knowing I have the ability to help people plan for their retirement and the future of their families. You definitely need to be self-motivated, organized and very entrepreneurial. There is no cap on earnings and payouts are liberal compared to most broker dealers.

    Cons

    You earn a living by helping people plan for the future. This is a career not a job to take for a paycheck. You have to be "on your game" every day and dedicated to your clients and your business.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure new candidates understand success as a financial professional requires long hours, evenings and often weekends meeting with potential clients, and a deep commitment to help improve the lives of others.
