    I have been working at AXA Advisors for less than a year

    Pros

    The ability to build a network. Learn about front-office work. Flexible hours. Great location in Midtown.

    Cons

    Office culture: lacking professionalism. Testosterone-filled. Loud, inappropriate banter. Inappropriate dress-code. Unpaid. Indifferent managers who want to maximize profit earning potential. Leaves intern with mundane business development work where the intern does not gain any knowledge.

    Lower starting salary for advisors. Unpaid internship originally. Training could use some work and the balance between work and home life is hard.

    Pros

    - Creating your own work schedule/ Flexible Hours (This is not a 8-5 job) - Running your own business with minimal start-up costs - Associates that are willing to help and work with you - Learning to have a entrepreneurial mindset - Company has existing client base to work with

    Cons

    - You must be self-disciplined - Abnormal working hours, especially when you have appointments with clients - You are not told what you do, you basically have to figure out things by yourself - Training is unorganized - The only thing you have control over is making appointments

    I have been working at AXA Advisors full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Really liked my coworkers as people. Everyone has an open door policy. Teamwork is utilized. Unlimited earning potential. Own your business. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Management is poor. Training style is very unorganized and repetitive at times. Lots of costs associated with running your business. They treat you as a business owner, so very few costs are paid for by AXA. That unlimited earning potential is undermined by working with a saturated teacher market. This was my first job out of college, so I wasn't entirely sure what to expect. For someone who knows 100% they want to be a financial advisor, AXA has a lot of resources as a huge company and a lot of great producers. Do not go RBG, go traditional to those who are certain about becoming an advisor.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at AXA Advisors

    Pros

    Flexible hours - except be ready to work evenings (to meet clients and for training) which can lead to working 12 hours or more a day.

    Cons

    The start up cost is too high. They promise to pay your licensing fees, but you have to chase people to refund anything. They concentrate on variable products, when they should also concentrate on fixed products as well. They want you to sell their products and not other vendors - because if you do you are paid less commission -underlying product driven scheme. This company is for someone who has been in the industry and has a full client list already - but be warn. Once you leave, you do not take those clients back 'cause they make you sign a contract and you cannot even call them for over one year.
