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

    Pros

    - AXA is a prestigious insurance company and has been the global leader in insurance for the past seven years.

    - Financial Executives enjoy unlimited earning potential

    - AXA likes to spoil their top performers

    - Career-pathing is fast paced

    - You are equipped with up to date gadgets and tools to make sales easier

    - Health card

    Cons

    - They don't set proper expectations during the hiring and training process.
    - They make you jump through so much hoops just to get your unlimited earning potential. Each bracket of potential income is gated with unrealistic figures.
    - Any part of your minimum quota that you do not meet in one month, is added to the next. If you do not hit your minimum performing standard within 3 months, that can be grounds for termination.
    - The fast paced career-pathing can be a double edged sword. Some people are promoted before they are truly ready.
    - The company does not understand what an over-saturated market is.
    - Poor communication between departments.
    - They like to set unrealistic goals and wonder why people choose to just jump ship.

    Advice to Management

    - Lower the gates and make more realistic quotas. If the company is truly about putting the customers first, then make good on your word.
    - Improve communication between departments.
    - If you keep on treating your people as disposable objects, then people will just continue to use your company as a springboard to another company.
    - Not everyone is motivated by cult-like displays of enthusiasm.
