I worked at AXA Advisors full-time for more than a year

Pros

The branch structure is designed to really help new people learn and grow in the business. Training in various locations throughout the country is always a nice perk.

Cons

The branch I was at had a lot of issues, an absentee Branch Manager and zero support. Orphaned clients have talked about a "revolving door" of advisors.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a good look at the branches in New York.

    I worked at AXA Advisors as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Generally friendly people. There is no office politics because everyone is on their own. Like all insurance business the reward is substantial if you do it well, and you don't really need to come to office

    Cons

    Office has poor ventilation. Low starting wage. If you don't fill targets you're in deep trouble.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Renovate the office. It's not 1980s

    Pros

    Great place if you're new to the industry. Training is good for overall product knowledge in life vehicles. You will get a good understanding of the uses and needs of life.

    Cons

    They seriously believe Cornerstone is the almighty one all best investment. Pay is crap. 2,000/ month in the rbg. You're dealing w cafe, maintenance, aids, and teachers. The creme brûlée client with wealth management needs, lol. LPL system is complete cramp. Not much is spoken about managed money. It's primarily a life insurance company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more. Get rid of 6 month contracts and step up to the plate. Otherwise you'll be training with high turn over and be another insurance company. Wall St. will not take you seriously. If there was a way to give them half a star I would. 1 star is too high IMO.
