Discovery is a well known and reputable Insurance company.

Both my roles were in the sales and distribution departments. Sales targets were mostly focused on.


It was fun, young vibrant team. Can get stressful, sometimes we would meet target on the last hour, the pressure was on, however, manageable.


Management was supportive and encouraging.

Hardest part - it's a sales environment, not meeting target was not fun.


Most enjoyable part - buzz in the call centres, team-buildings and outings and off course, meeting targets and smiling to the bank
Pros
Free lunches when we work late nights
Cons
Far from home

My day start at 7 and end at 15.30
Its a very slow day and there has not been much work

Do work for a few hours then do nothing for the rest of the day

The workplace is a buzz with talk and mostly social

Please understand that not working can get very boring

Gym is currently my most enjoyable part of my day.

Management don't really take the time to talk to us. There is a selective few that they communicate with.
Pros
Free coffee

It was very exciting to go to work because you come across different challenges from day to day. I enjoyed section 14 transfers and worked well with management and co workers. The hardest part of the job was to keep financial advisors happy by processing their requests timeously in order for funds to be invested for them to get their commission in time. The most enjoyable part of the job is that it was an easy job and a lot to learn on a day to day basis.
Pros
Incentives
Cons
Long hours of over time

Discovery holdings is a pressurized work environment in a very positive way as this helps you keep you on your toes constantly. There's always opportunities to learn and grow and management supports its staff. Team support is critical in this ever changing environment as team members need to feed off each other's knowledge base.

The hardest part about my job is taking out the emotions when making business decisions. The most enjoyable part is the freedom that is allowed by management to do tasks at your own pace, as long as targets are met constantly, it's the freedom of not being micro managed.
Pros
Contant growth potential and free/discounted gym membership
Cons
Parking facilities(paid monthly) and unsubsidiased medical aid
