    I worked at AXA as an intern (Less than a year)

    Lots of educational seminars and networking opportunities

    The financial advisor intern is not actually assigned to any real work, it's more like just practicing fake cold call all day

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Provided great opportunities for personal development and global exposure
    Loved working with the financial professionals in the field and had an outstanding team working with me

    Cons

    Recent years, the turnover from the top down in the U.S. leadership team has brought in a change of focus from people to Mckinsey-type data analysis that drives all decisions, regardless of impact to people.

    Advice to Management

    You need to focus on treating people right and results will follow. Use some 360 reviews to see what people really think of current leaders and recognize that while some people show some metric-driven results, their reports do not feel appreciated and some are downright fearful of their managers.
