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

Pros

Great training for consulting process. Very systematic in weekly sales meetings- not just ra ra sessions; focused on helping the producer. Fair payout if you're willing to work. Great opportunity for those who push themselves.

Cons

They require you to have a minimum percentage of your production be with proprietary products- thankfully they have some pretty good products. Some in upper management get to pushing the company Kool-Aid in a heavy handed way. If you stick to doing right by the client you'll be okay.

Advice to Management

Too proprietary product focused... it's a dinosaur business model. Also, not a single advisor, not even the 30 year veterans, were able to read commission statements.

    Pros

    Great compensation package, they allow you to earn as you learn and they do not ask for a project 100 or project 200

    Cons

    lacking upward mobility, the chances of moving to corporate are very slim and to be successful one should have a network already in place and also be able to prospect.

    Advice to Management

    work with developing sales force

    Technology getting better. Decent wholesaler access.

    Cons

    Management support is overall poor.No marketing at all. Expenses are high.No help unless you are producing early.Experienced sales force is disengaged with building new business.

    Advice to Management

    Stop recruiting. Get your experienced sales force to become more willing to grow and get them to recruit for you.
