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

    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.

    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.

    I worked at AXA Advisors full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1) People are very friendly.
    2) Many people there are willing to help you if you ask.
    3) They are very upfront about licensing costs and reimbursements after being contracted.

    Cons

    1) You have to pay for all licensing upfront (Roughly around $1200 in total)
    2) You have to be fully licensed to be fully able to make money on all of the products sold.
    Commission was not fully explained to begin with, therefore, after being able to bring clients for certain products, the truth was revealed and it was usually less from what was actually told in the beginning.
    3) This is a 100% Commission based job
    4) After getting fully licensed and receiving the proper amount of clients, that's when you're able to be contracted and make a salary (Even though after al of this happened, I was recommended not to accept the salary)

    Advice to Management

    Be upfront with everyone from the beginning instead of having someone be told that salary is a possibility and once they're contracted then telling them that it is not worth taking the salary.
