    Pros

    They put a lot of time and effort into you, lots of opportunities for joint work, at least one training per week for new advisors

    Cons

    It's sales so if you're not good at that don't bother. There's a 6 month pre-contract period where its' 100% commission based so unless you have a strong support at home you're going to struggle financially. I'm talking weeks without a paycheck or if you finally get one it's like $200. Also, your manager has his team plus his book of business to worry about so unless you're working on a big case it's going to be hard to get them to run appointments with you. And don't think this is a normal 9-5, I was working crazy hours. Like leaving my house at 6 and getting home around 8 or 9.

    Advice to Management

    Make your schedule more open so you can run with your team.

    Pros

    If you are ready to work very hard than AXA is a place for you. We have superior training, a team atmosphere, and a friendly working environment. Management gives good direction on how to run your business and there is always someone to turn to in times of need.

    Cons

    As with all jobs, it is all about finding the right fit. If you are not ready to work hard, long hours do not join AXA. It is 100% commission which is both a blessing and a curse. If you are not coachable, or do not have a strong work ethic do not apply, however if you do, it is a great place to grow a career.

    Pros

    After a year of interviewing various large and small financial services firms in the Washington, D.C. area I decided to enter the industry and build my practice with AXA. The leadership of the D.C. branch comes from a position of industry experience and success. It is important to me to have a leadership team that made the commitment to build their own successful financial practices and prove themselves in the industry, so that I can be confident in their guidance and advice in building my own practice. What is very appealing and encouraging with this firm is the office culture is one that emphasizes joint work with experienced advisors, comprehensive training, and most importantly self accountability in building my practice. I'm very happy with my results and experiences at AXA.

    Cons

    Entering the financial services industry as an advisor working directly with clients is challenging. Challenging not just at AXA, but at any financial firm. This can be frustrating. Work-life balance is tough to start out because it takes time and commitment to build a successful practice. However, once your practice builds momentum the work-life balance improves greatly and provides more flexibility than any other career I have worked in. A challenge that I experienced is that coming on board is not taking a job, but building a practice. That mental shift from being an employee to being a business owner building my financial services practice was a bit of a struggle, but it is essential to understand to be successful.

    I have been working at AXA Advisors as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The office atmosphere is comfort and friendly. It's a good place for people like to talk with others and wanna be a financial advisor. But not provide visa sponsor for international student.

    Cons

    You need try your best to get as much info about potential clients. The process is very boring, but you have to be patient and keep working.

    Advice to Management

    People wanna work as a financial advisor needs to get some license to access to the position.

    Pros

    It's a really relevant growth experience. Especially if you are on your first job experience.

    Cons

    They train you really much. You will have a coach who follows your for the first period.

    Advice to Management

    I think it could be more challenging; finding a way to keep entushiasm among employers, not just once at year
