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

    Pros

    Pay is great as you move up. Share plan investing is good. People are friendly.

    Cons

    Overworked employees, many managers are not qualified for leading. Never enough people to do the jobs, initiatives with no plans, and poor leaders who are highly compensated. Lots of politics and stress. Reputation for layoffs regularly due to poor U.S. Sales. Brand is not recognizable and finances always bolstered by their French parent company to stay afloat.

    Advice to Management

    Look at successful companies where employees are valued and work life balance is real.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    More freedom compared to banks or other financial institutions. Flexible schedules, opportunity to build your own business/client base. you decide on your clients; who you want to work with and at the end they remain your clients, your relationships, not the institution or other agent

    Cons

    As an agent you are responsible for all initial fees: hiring, books, licensing and registration, exams. you are given a short time to pass 3 exams, complete the training phase, and meet the minimum requirements in order to contract. From a support role, each branch operates in their own way; they create their own policies. depending on the branch, you either have support OR little to no support and unclear guidelines.

    Advice to Management

    New hires need more support from their managers. guidance and development. / home office: hire more people to each department. few people juggling more than they can handle = outcome is inefficient and sloppy.

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

    Pros

    AXA provides a great working environment. Running your own business allows for a very flexible schedule. The potential income is unlimited. AXA allows you to sell other companies insurance products which helps take away the competition.

    Cons

    Management does not provide too much direction, you are thrown right out into the fire. There are a lot of fees associated with working at the company. They make you pay for everything.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to focus more on the development of their young employees. All they care about is the money they make off of their team.
