    Pros

    Great working environment. Entire organization is supportive and committed to bettering the lives of their employees. You are able to grow and further your career without being micromanaged but always have the help and guidance that you need. Benefits are top of the line.

    Cons

    Much of the leg work must be done in the first 3-5 years but for committed and motivated people this won't be an issue!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great support. The best managers I could ask for.

    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.

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

    Pros

    AXA training has been detailed and empowering. I am an entrepreneurial minded person and this firm has given me every tool and resource to help me make my dreams come true. The leadership has been phenomenal. They challenge and encourage you beyond what you thought you could do. The team environment is supportive and encouraging as well. Everyday I get the chance to help people! There is a flexible schedule and the compensation is great. I came in with eyes wide open and I have not been disappointed

    Cons

    The industry in general is a tough field. After interview many places I went with AXA because I felt they were honest with me about what to expect and their retention rates are crushing the industry average. I knew to be successful I had to learn from the best and have the best training.

    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 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

    Pros

    You can't do yourself enough favors by putting yourself in the position to work with this company! Truly amazing people to guide and train you - they pick you up when you're down because they have all been in your shoes before! Tough business- yes!! As long as you're a hard worker, you WILL flourish from your relationship here. I guarantee you that you will not get better support or knowledge anywhere else!!

    Cons

    If you've never pushed yourself in your life, forget about it!!! If you have, well then you'll be fine. At the end of the day, this is on you- it's your business and your in charge of your path here! Sure you may spend a few days on Ramen noodles, who cares- who hasn't!! Grind it out and do your best, do now what most people won't to have later what most people don't!

    Advice to Management

    You nailed it!

    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.
