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

    Pros

    In my department the people are great and want to see you succeed. Benefits are decent. Work from home is a nice perk.

    Cons

    Terrible communication between upper management and employees. Opportunity for growth is limited. Compensation is on the low side.

    Pros

    Good time off, 401K, benefits they pay partial. Work Life Balance good.

    Cons

    Have only had one raise in 10 years and that is with positive reviews every year. No longer able to live on just this pay alone due to raises in health care. No pension, no retirement benefits either.

    Advice to Management

    Cost of living raises at the very least.

    I worked at AXA Equitable full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits were very good. Salary was inadequate.

    Cons

    AXA is moving almost all jobs and positions to their Service Center in Charlotte, NC. If you want to move there, Great. If not, then it is Bad. Also a move to NC will also mean your Comp. will be ties to a NC comparable salary or wage, even if your live in NY Metro area and work remotely. In addition, while they say "Employees are our best asset", they do not follow that philosophy.

    Advice to Management

    MUST fix the Life Service Center that is creating such a huge back log in processing applications. Focus on that to generate more revenue instead of cutting all other costs.

    I have been working at AXA Equitable full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work from home, casual dress code, good benefits

    Cons

    Working at AXA is stressful. Due to cost cutting and downsizing, everyone is expected to complete overwhelming amounts of work while also worrying about their own job security. This is not a suitable place to develop your career

    Advice to Management

    Please start caring more about those under you

    I worked at AXA Equitable full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    it was a paycheck, barely

    Cons

    long commute with their new address, low pay, high cost benefit package, no dedication to employees, layoffs every couple months leaving the survivors that stay behind with more work than they are paid for, low to no salary increases.

    Advice to Management

    treat your employees like they matter. pay them better and stop screwing them over
