    I have been working at AXA Advisors full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Be able to run a business where you can do what your clients need you to do. Insurance, investments, annuities, planning, all in one spot. Few firms offer the ability to do each and do them well.

    Cons

    Career is not for the faint of heart... You have to grind for a few years to build relationships that will last. Too many people think they have what it takes to make it but ultimately give up before good things start to happen.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on developing younger advisors and reap the rewards for generations to come

    I worked at AXA Advisors full-time

    Pros

    Building own book of business from scratch was a humbling sales experience. Facing rejection only made you stronger for future sales role. Great foundation to building myself as a sales professional. Challenging industry for young college grads, but exciting for the optimistic individual. Work hard, play hard.

    Cons

    High turnover, lacking strong leadership, good luck finding a mentor to help with development, training was minimal and redundant, was sold on exciting expectations about the job opportunity and under delivered on the actual experience. Make sure you know what you're getting into if you peruse after reading this. Your just a number on your managers hiring quota for the year, they have their own personal production they're...

    Advice to Management

    People you hire are the future in your business and it's success, not just an additional number to impress your manager. Invest some time in them, train and nurture them as if their your own blood...your own offspring. Focus on hiring good talent and retaining them, not the rapid fire approach and hope you hit the target.

    Pros

    Axa is a decent company with a focus on helping average people in their finances. Fairly good products from a defensive standpoint. Some opportunity to grow and excel.

    No training of value Territorial mindset No real teaming Completely defensive mindset, pushing insurance and annuities almost exclusively

    Advice to Management

    Make an investment in training your people

      Former Employee - Regional Vice President 

      I worked at AXA Advisors full-time

      Pros

      Lots of autonomy and ability to create success

      Cons

      Training was very limited and primarily done online. It was very time consuming and confusing at times.

      Advice to Management

      Create a better option to train those coming from outside AXA.
