    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Generous commissions and flexible with working hours. Broad number of products within their niche and access to almost entire market portfolio within the insurance business.

    Cons

    Non-structured training with little or no official organizational goals except through computer training. Most of the successful management is relatively inaccessable or very arrogant. Many of their top producers are not savvy or educated in the current state of financial markets or their own internal systems and management doesn't seem to care. Alot of basic information is assumed and not taught (operational). No transparancy for many clients in terms of what is going to be charged or what is available because the Advisors' position is to only learn and sell the basic, most profitable products.

    Advice to Management

    Teach your middle management to interact and practice better customer consideration. Learn the internal systems, like how much clients are charged, what AXA does about certain Finra and Sipc limits. Practice what you preach in big meetings at the one on one level.

    Current Employee - Financial Consultant in Edison, NJ
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    +flexibility, respect, opportunity for growth both personally and professionally
    + if you have a passion for helping people and building relationships then you'll enjoy this job.
    + friendly upper management, I had terrific manager to turn to if i had any questsions or concerns or needed help running meetings, some of them will make the extra effort to see you succeed
    + great team atmosphere and co-workers
    +great job for visonary entrepreneurs
    +great benefits

    Cons

    - compensation can be better considering the hard work you put in
    - if you're straight out of college, it will be hard to make it, trying to build your book of business, being so young, some prospective clients might be hesitant to trust you with their money.
    - Outdated computers!
    - plenty of fees to just get started
    - no TVs, CNBC or Bloomberg going on in the Edison office

    Advice to Management

    I wish management would be more thorough with their hiring process and not just hire anybody to just see if something sticks. The training program definitely needs to more robust.
