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

    Pros

    -Ability to increase income year over year. -I continue to frequently learn something almost daily after 9 years of being with the company. -I've got to see the planning that I've done with clients have a tremendous impact on their lives

    Cons

    This business is hard and is best suited for "go-getters" and those who are either already self-disciplined or who are committed to becoming self disciplined.

    Former Employee - Financial Advisor 

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

    Pros

    You build your own business and requirements to stay in the business are low.

    Cons

    Training. Really insufficient training on financial concepts. They train you on how insurance can play a key role in retirement planning. They do little to no training on economic strategies and recession proofing, etc.. Benefits are not good ..

    Advice to Management

    Management can't do anything about this. It is the way the B/D insurer is structured.
