The incentive structure means you can earn a bonus every single month, so you basically write your own paycheck. Enjoyed working there, even though the promotion structure was a bit suspect....
Pros
Write your own Salary
Cons
Limited opportunity for advancement

I wish to be paid well and better benefits. Medical aid and pension fund should be also given to employees.basic salary is too small and can not even cover basic needs.

Discovery Health Customer Services is a tough work environment that challenges one everyday. The nature of the business that we service is rather sensitive and thus it not like any other customer service center. However each consultant is trained thoroughly over a period of 6 weeks or more, depending on the position, before they ever interact with a customer. The learning is constant as the benefits and products are also constantly changing.

It's a busty department however the work is mundane. Juggling my day to day tasks can be tricky when there are a lot of escalations coming through during the day. The management has an open door policy.
Cons
No bonuses and benefits

Discovery from all other Financial institutions strive on the ability to keep each individual healthy,as being the youngest industry is very innovated and moving at a fast pace providing clients with benefits no other institution can offer. i see clients on a daily basis and do not have to be micro-managed as i understand being in an industry that is very target driven productivity is imperative. I learn from the more senior advisers as i take on challengers as we assist each other with the amount of diverse clients we meet and very competitive among ourselves. we strive on having healthy relationships as you never know when you require assistance in the field so there is a certain code of respect and understanding .......i think this applies to every adviser you may find today. management is always able to assist, as an adviser though you become indenpendant and ensure that if something needs to be done , apply yourself,open yourself to new relationships with your back round support and only if you have tried all avenues and were unsuccessful then look for assistance from a management....or maybe that is me and how i prefer not to make excuses,.Rather find a solution. i enjoy the thrill of meeting with clients as not one is the same as the other.I was born for sales, however i feel like my experience in the industry and in sales should allow me to grow as an individual moving up the corporate ladder.
Pros
salary, clients, sales, working at your own time
Cons
commission only based Salary only, for a female who has had 2 children and no UIF benefits this is highly discouraging to me.

Learnt a lot when it comes to work ethic, getting recognition for work well done, Excellent growth opportunity (If Junior Management likes you) Overall I learnt a lot there but I had to go have better rewards elsewhere. Its like Military training, except they send to to battle ill equipped, with the "weak" disappearing, leaving only "McGyvers" who always can make a plan left. That style leads to a lot of bad competition with colleagues. I would recommend working there just to experience proper work pressure. If you can make it there you can make it anywhere.
Pros
Epic Year End Functions, the sorbets.
Cons
Salary, remuneration, money, no 13th cheque. salary, again.

Your growth is not determined by how good you work, its based on if Management likes the person you are. You need to be a "teachers pet" in order to grow anywhere

Good company to work for, just less advancement for the previously disadvantaged. Internal recruitment processes are flawed. Senior Management actually better than Junior management.
Pros
Fun Young Vibrant Company
Cons
No benefits, rude team leaders
