    Pros

    You see your rota at least 3 weeks in advance.
    The vast majority of staff are so friendly.
    Only work in 3 Saturdays and no Sundays.
    Only one late shift a week, which is up until 8pm.
    You’re able to have a life outside of work.
    There seems to be reasonable career progression.
    Once monthly voice.

    Cons

    The statistics- you’re expected to reach these strict stats while delivering excellent customer service, very difficult.
    The systems need updated, badly.
    No staff WiFi in canteen or nowhere to buy lunch on site.

    Advice to Management

    Give better support after training, new starts can be excluded on the floor and some Team Leaders picked on certain new starts.

    Pros

    The culture of the SF office is second to none! It is a team with high integrity and strong client centric values.

    The compensation is uncapped and the flexibility of the career is amazing.

    There is no immediate gratification. Deals can take months to close and clients are sometimes difficult to work with. You have to really work hard and make sure that you view this as a profession.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you hire people that are prepared for this profession and have entrepreneurial spirit.

    Pros

    Kind people who genuinely want you to succeed.

    Cons

    Absolutely NO help prospecting, you either bring relationships with you, be prepared to cold call until you burn out and lose your house, or flat out sink.

    Advice to Management

    Be truthful and clear. Don't paint a blue sky with little intention of keeping or seeing that through. Your words are considered to be oaths, promises, and at least reliable.

    I have been working at AXA Advisors full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The opportunity to develop a client base and work with people you truly enjoy seeing and working with. The flexibility in controlling your own schedule and choosing the work / life balance that fits your personal situation is unparalleled. Building a recurring revenue stream offers great stability. You have the opportunity and have the satisfaction to help people and families achieve their life goals

    Cons

    You have to get through the first few years of learning and developing your client and referral base. The initial efforts, if well executed, will pay dividends in career progression and personal satisfaction.
