Just wondering if anyone has had any experiences with AXA in Houston that they'd like to share.  I've read a lot of negative feedback about AXA on this board, yet, others have mentioned that a situation can vary depending on a particular branch, etc.

Also, suppose one were to start off with a firm and decide that he/she would be better off elsewhere, what would be a reasonable amount of time to stay there before leaving?   How long is a training period, generally speaking?   Are contracts generally signed for three year periods?  How would one proceed if he/she felt it necessary to move on before the contract was up?  What would be the repercussions/ consequences?

Thanks for your input!

I know a number of reps in that office and a few of the groups are pondering leaving due to the merger between MONY and AXA.

When it comes to a 'below- average' firm such as AXA, rife with pressure to sell proprietary products and poor IT infrastructure, a good branch manager can still make a difference.  However, IMHO it will simply be a matter of them "sucking less", not being a good place to start one's career.  Just my 2 cents worth....

My branch was in the Northeast, and my branch manager was one of the best in the firm. We won our firms presidents trophy twice when I was there. The guy was great with tons of support, but I still realized it wasnt where I wanted to be long term.
