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

    Pros

    Advancement opportunities, excellent training, high income potential, leadership development, robust platform to serve client needs, genuine impact can be made on the lives of clients, great work environment

    Cons

    This is definitely a career and not simply a job. For those that don't approach with correct mindset or are not right for the job, it can be a very frustrating experience. For those that persevere and avail themselves to the resources and training available, however, it can be life changing!

    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.
