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

    Pros

    Lots of resources, strong insurance brands, LPL Financial Brokerage Platform

    Cons

    Commission Only, Extremely high cost to operate your practice (at least 20-30k per year), Nickel and dimed for supbar technology and marketing material. No formal training program with a focus on small account production. Compensation & Benefits are too tied to your insurance production. They claim independent open-architecture but the only products they really want you to sell is AXA Equitable Life Insurance and Annuities.

    Advice to Management

    It's not AXA Equitable, it's AXA Advisors. Insurance is not the end all be all for financial planning. Invest in your producers with a base salary and stop charging them for everything. Also, train your producers to build a pipeline of prospects with minimum asset levels. They spend far too much time servicing non profitable clients with under 100k in assets and don't have the platform to support HNW clients. They can't live and die by VUL and VA's because post financial crisis clients expect a lot of liquidity and are very fee conscious.
