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

    Pros

    Unlimited income potential, flexible work hours, company paid travel, and the best part is that your job is essentially to help others and get paid for it.

    Cons

    You must be willing to work hard, in the beginning you will work 4x as hard for 1x the pay, but after a few years you will be making 4x the pay for 1x the work....and after about 4-5 years the sky really is the limit (You can go into management, start your own team, bring on a mentor, or hire your own assistant and open an office for yourself.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I can think of for upper management would be to advertise more, more exposure would lead to more satisfied clients, advisors, and the company as a whole.

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

    Pros

    1. Support from the Management Team 2. Products and Services available to my Clients 3. Professional Development 4. Flexibility 5. Training and Mentoring Program for all new Advisors.

    Cons

    1. This is a challenging career, and you must be willing to work extremely hard. Your early hard work will pay off, though. 2. Depending on the type of practice you want to run, your connections will be invaluable when growing your business. It's tough to relocate.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to innovate our technology platforms. The addition of SalesForce and online application processing has been great.

    Pros

    The more you work, the more potential there is to grow and get compensated. Great flexibility and pay structure. Good training program for new employees (thanks to experienced management team).

    Cons

    No major complaints. Just be prepared to work A LOT - but at least it pays off unlike with other jobs where you may work a lot and not see the results.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

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

    Pros

    Great team atmosphere with co-workers who become friends. Ability to make great money, challenging and engaging career. It gets easier and easier over time as you build up your clients. Great training too.

    Cons

    You must be self motivated, you will be guided and helped with what to do but you need to go out and do it yourself. Getting started can take a lot of time and effort to build up your business but once you do it will be rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the training schedule, set up more times for senior advisors to talk to new ones and give them advice from when they were new.
