I worked at AXA Advisors full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good basic training to get acquainted with financial services. If you're a "drink the Kool-Aid" sort of person, you'll fit right in.

Cons

Crummy products to sell. Good people come and go. Sketchy people make a career there.

    I have been working at AXA Advisors as an intern

    Pros

    Great people to work with and it's a nice balance between professionalism and having fun. As an intern you aren't disrespected and you can become part of the team if you want to be. Do your work, don't complain and they'll appreciate you, the work isn't too complicated. You can attend client meetings as well, but you have to ask-again take initiative. They are very lax with students and you can rearrange your schedule, they don't mind if you take a day off or two for tests or other things.

    Cons

    There isn't really much formal training so you have to quickly pick up things yourself and take initiative to learn. Also the internship isn't really on a track for a financial advisor role, I look at it more as a way to potentially get hired or make connections. Again if you want to learn things about being an advisor you have to take initiative and ask A LOT of questions.
    If you aren't into learning or selling insurance, this isn't the right place to learn about other investment services. Yes they do money management and other things, but it is very limited and again you to have actively search for someone who actually does those things and work with them.
    Sometimes it's hard to look at your day and say "wow I just gained an invaluable amount of knowledge", but then again you are just an intern.. This goes back to the grooming aspect

    Advice to Management

    Work with interns to grow them into the advisors you want them to be. It's almost like you're expecting them to leave, when you should be courting them to stay. There are may areas for improvement that the branch can take:
    -utilize intern to make you more money, phone calls, scheduling reviews, gathering client information
    -Stress how much money you can make from a given client or case
    -Make them smarter and more knowledgeable than when they walked in by providing classes/presentations specifically for interns.

    I have been working at AXA Advisors full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Big company. Not many pros unfortunately. Great location.

    Cons

    many false promises to get you in. Didnt deliver promises. Left you alone to do business like independent not office support as promised. Push there products not real full service and brokerage as claimed.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new manager. Get new life in the office. Do you really want to grow with new people? or just numbers game.
