    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at AXA Advisors full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    comprehensive suite of solutions, from investments to insurance, not limited to one company's products able to build a practice like an independent advisor but part of a large support organization which makes available benefits and wealth accumulation options (401k, stock purchase) back office support, product and solution specialists, resources available so you do not have to hire it out yourself

    Cons

    not as much of a household name as some other financial firms, but ultimately people are buying/trusting the individual advisor, so not a big issue

    Pros

    Independence, career control, open architecture platform, in terms of financial planning no limit or constraints are put on you. You don't have to just sell AXA products, great benefits. If you're willing to work hard and prospect, you'll do very well.

    Cons

    Just like any true financial advising role, it can be a challenge starting out and building your client base from scratch. There are some upfront costs for licensing and testing that are refundable once you've been with the company a while.

    I have been working at AXA Advisors full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    AXA's commitment and support for developing advisors is one of the strongest in the industry. They promote joint work, so every meeting you run as a developing advisor you have an experienced partner with you to help you in the meeting. AXA has systems in place to train advisors on the sales cycle, product, and mindset. Also, AXA hires really good people. Everyone you meet is kind, genuine, supportive, and happy. I believe it is one of the best work cultures out there. Becoming a successful advisor can be so rewarding and deliver such an incredible lifestyle.

    Cons

    Becoming an advisor can be difficult. There are early mornings and late evenings in the office. You have to prospect a lot, which can involve a lot of rejection. Early in the career you might not make as much as you desire. Some days it can be very frustrating.

    I worked at AXA Advisors full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Complete autonomy, you set your own hours and work as hard as you want with very little oversight.

    Cons

    AXA will tell you they are a wealth management company, but 90% of advisor's business is insurance based, which is heavily pushed by managers. The management team seems to only care about what makes them the most money, so their "trainings" teach you to be salesmen, not actual advisors. Also, while the autonomy can be great if you are a hard worker and have natural connections, for most advisors it ends up being a huge negative because they don't have the tools needed to be successful. They will preach unlimited income potential, but realistically if an advisor made $40k in their first year, they would be praised for being highly successful. Finally, the culture here is absolutely atrocious, this place is ran like a frat house. It can be fun for awhile, but it is NOT a professional setting and it is only getting worse.
