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

    Pros

    Barely paid and 401k after 3 years

    Cons

    This company does not care about their employees but somehow they are voted best places to work. Only benefits is having a 401k that will match after 3 years. Health insurance is expensive and management doesn't know anything and the policies are set up against the employees. No work life balance, only favorites are promoted, and they hand out occurrences like candy but not to favorites. This place is a nightmare!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Research other companies to see their benefit packages, stop the favoritism, act like you care about your employees not just saying you do.

    I worked at AXA Equitable full-time

    Pros

    Gorgeous campus and great location

    Cons

    Micromanages, some co-workers will not go out of their way to help you

    Advice to Management

    Decent first job straight out of college. For the most part I enjoyed my co-workers and managers. Disappointed that my job description changed on a daily basis. A lot of my superiors had a "not my problem" outlook when I was in a difficult situation.
