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

    Pros

    Big company. Not many pros unfortunately. Great location.

    Cons

    many false promises to get you in. Didnt deliver promises. Left you alone to do business like independent not office support as promised. Push there products not real full service and brokerage as claimed.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new manager. Get new life in the office. Do you really want to grow with new people? or just numbers game.

    Pros

    Potential to make a lot of money, but only if you sell every client an annuity or insurance.

    Cons

    Management and upper management only care about selling products that aren't in the clients best interests!

    Advice to Management

    Have some ethics and do what's in the clients best interests.

    Pros

    Teaches you to present materials professionally and build lasting relationships with clients.

    Cons

    Everything else. Management here is a joke. Once you leave and a client decides to cancel their contract, AXA bills you for the advanced commissions. That's not a problem and I agree money should be reimbursed. However, agents who take over your newly acquired client may churn the account (cancel their existing account and make them open another one within AXA to increase their application count to meet the monthly quota) or simply give bad service making the client want to transfer to a better institution.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just concentrate on one or two of your favorites. Spend more time going over technical information regarding the products you sell.

    Pros

    Free pizza every Wednesday, you get to dress up in nice, fancy suits and stay in a "hotel" for up to six months!

    Cons

    Prey on people's fear and greed, hours are not flexible and you are not the owner of your business as the hiring manager purported to be when you were first courted, cold calling and new recruit turnover is high.

    Advice to Management

    Manipulation does not work in the end.
