I feel can be so much that can brew done to secure or improve the life of employees at avbob, the company is a great company but it has lot of gaps, to grown and communication with management level is Zero. After 100 years of Services you would think Avbob system is reach but not still lot of challenges company is going through, I think collaboration with Employees will help the company

Even if they asked me nicely, I will not come back. Everything is about BEE. Problem is BEE employees cant do the work, so they get guys like me to come sort out the problems, on a contract basis. Last company I'll ever work for again...

Not very happy with the working ethics. Virtually impossible to achieve a bonus and promises made are not kept. Not motivating. It is a nice environment to work in although there is very little room for growth. They ask you to achieve goals, to make the required salary and then you don't receive feedback when you do and neither do you get the salary promised.
Pros
not working holidays
Cons
Virtually impossible to secure a bonus

The job I am currently working at is versatile because you are working as your own boss as you have to manage your time, manage your diary to make sure you honour clients appointments. I have learnt to be more resilient, patient, to manage time wisely as often times you make an appointment with a client only to find that upon arrival the client is either at the meeting or has changed his mind about taking up a policy. The challenges that I have come to realize is that you have to use your own petrol and airtime to make appointments and visit clients, also getting rejections from potential clients. The biggest challenge are the lapses when the client can no longer pay the premiums. This challenges have built my character. The most part I enjoy about this job is that you get to meet different clients and build enduring customer relationships
Pros
Flexible times
Cons
Lapses from clients that dont pay their premiums
