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

Pros

Hours are flexible. You get to work with other interns.

Cons

I learned very little through my internship. The manager is still too new in the industry. There are a lot of things he did not know. I did a lot of grunt work, very boring

Advice to Management

have a good and planned internship program, have some work for employees

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at AXA Advisors as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    AC, water, and phone worked. Color printer looked nice for the managers otherwise you paid. If you want to be close to your parents this is a great way to move back home to cut back on expenses. Anybody can get a job there, they are very open to anybody that breathes.

    Cons

    MLM style business. Not really taken seriously by the financial industry because its an insurance company. Great business model for shareholders, except you will always be training good talent and they will end up leaving to greener pastures that actually pay more then minimum wage. Turnover is roughly 1.5-2yrs from what I saw. They try to say otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    Quit being cheap and spend the supposedly wealth you make. Toss the cult style Monday night blabbing by that goone. Turn the place into a real financial firm. Spend the wealth for once.

    I worked at AXA Advisors (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I can't think of any.

    Cons

    No training
    Exhorbitant monthly fees
    Mandatory LPL subscription
    Product portfolio that is poor

    Advice to Management

    Invest your time in a quality training program and not simply throw the new recruits to the wolves expecting them to sell your overpriced variable annuities let alone variable life. Unless the Branch Manager is invested in their success, new recruits will fail. As for the DM's...let them recruit, develop, and manage new recruits. Don't hold DM's to both a recruiting and personal production requirement.
