Not a bad place to be an advisor, but make sure you know what you're up against.
Financial Advisor (Former Employee), MPLS, MNSeptember 24, 2014
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: soliciting
AXA has better than average industry retention, but they are not afraid to cut those who are struggling. They will give you six months. It is very possible to make the required amount of sales in that time. However, they will have you pulling all the sales tricks in the book. Prepare yourself for performing a lot of soliciting and pure cold calls to – more... meet your quotas.

The MPLS branch corporate culture leaves something to be desired. Most people don't care to talk and care very little for each other. However, the managers are the exception. They will put in the time to teach you the skills you need. The problem here is that they are severely overburdened and some of the busiest people you will meet.

Being a financial advisor is a tough gig that simply wasn't right for me. I wouldn't recommend to most people I know, but if you are convinced it is the right job for you - AXA is in the middle of the pack. – less

long hours and no security
Financial Consultant (Current Employee), Woodbury, NYAugust 20, 2014
Pros: free lunch on fridays, friendly work environment
Cons: long hours, not enough pay, cold calling, no security
Everyone that worked for AXA was extremely nice and considerate, they were the most enjoyable part about AXA. I didn't enjoy my typical work day of cold calling hundreds of people. The hours were long, sometimes 12 hour days, and training was pure commissions so often you were not getting paid.

Pros: create your own schedule
Cons: takes a while to build a sucess practice
A typical day for me would be making a school visit to help teachers enroll in their district sponsored 403b plans. I work in an office with four other AXA agents who have been very helpful in helping me learn the business.

AXA is good working environment but commission based. The people are extremely nice and motivating but finding clients and prospecting is the most difficult.

I've been researching them for a while on and of..partly depends on what part of the country you're in,and the location,etc.,etc.
n/a new prospective or recent candidate (Former Employee), New York,NYMay 23, 2014
Pros: flexible scheduling, your own hours, and entreprenuerial options
Cons: no real security, or base salary, minimal quality support, limited room for advancement, hard for beginner sto move ahead in many cases, etc.
Overall,reviews I've read,and from what I've studied,it's a fair opportunity at best,is what I hear from the majority..If you're well connected,or know a good amount of people,you may have abetter chance,but if you're new to the industry,the majority of the people I have encountered,or read from,say it's better to start with another company that offers – more... more security,and preferably a base salary,or allowance.... – less

The most important thing to remember working at AXA is that you are building your own business. You will be relying on your own skills to network, prospect, and ultimately generate sales. There is no base salary so the stress is a little higher than usual. This is not a job for someone who is not motivated and does not have good connections in the valley – more... in order to generate business. – less

Financial Consultant (Former Employee), Richmond, VAApril 18, 2014
Pros: good compensation
Cons: lack of training and high turnover
My responsibility was to sell insurance, stocks and annuities from Richmond down to VA Beach. Enjoyed the freedom afforded and the relationships built but the training and overall management was not there. Also the territory was overwhelming in size at that stage in my life and the job security was not there as well as upward mobility.
