    I have been working at AXA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Employed and reasonable salary so far.

    Cons

    Benefits are costly and not exciting. Benefits keep decreasing.
    AXA is stuck in paste and has lost focus on the customer and its employee.
    There is no rule legal or not that AXA won't break. I have never once seen a no for any reason that AXA won't break.
    Every day is a fight for a person to stay relevant at AXA.
    There is no future at AXA, a person is working for the day and tomorrow can be gone.
    There is almost zero independent action. The workplace is stressful and not fun. Coworkers are great
    Direction is slow, confusing and deeply concerning.
    AXA is not quick to change, very stuck in its own way.

    Advice to Management

    Take my cons and bring commitment back to the workforce that is committed to AXA.

    I worked at AXA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent benefits (401K match, health insurance, and maternity leave) Most of the staff is great to work with. Very advisors centric. Has the bare bones that are required to be a good place to work.

    Cons

    The staff is treated as less than relevant. Work is piled on without regard or any connection to job title. Current BOM is under qualified and inept. Afraid to make decisions, and will throw any staff member under the bus with the BM just to avoid getting into trouble. Not trustworthy at all.

    Advice to Management

    Seek more qualified Management or hold current management responsible for their position. Don’t just say staff is appreciated with words but with everyday actions. Hold difficult staff responsible for their negative, and divisive attitudes, instead of rewarding bad behavior so that no one else quits. Recruit the appropriate staff numbers so that work is not piled on those that are willing to help.

    Pros

    Great benefits, but not sure how much longer this will last

    Cons

    Management's lack of response to personnel and performance issues. Uneven work distribution. Too many changes in directions. A lot of work for those that perform well. Virtually no work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent with the message and approach. And get better at addressing people and performance issues.

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment. People for the most part are easy going.

    Nothing really matter except getting your dials in on a daily basis. Its a quick burn out. Also the company can come off as a boys club most of the managers are men.
