I loved the people I worked with but some managers were just unethical in their approach to staff members who they did not like and made it blatantly obvious that they would try and get them dismissed if they could .
Pros
Uncapped aalary after achieving minimum standards

"In my recent financial advisor I had a core project that was my key deliverable for the summer. So my work day was structured around completion of that deliverable. So I’ll cover first an example of a work day early in the project and then I’ll also give you another example of a work day as we I got closer to completion of the project…"

Most of the clients withdraw which causes you as the advisor to loose money since you on commission people change they minds every time therefore it is vital to get a reliable worksite without your own transport it is impossible to reach all your appointments

You have to use your owl salary to put petrol in your car... You drive your car in their chops for the job for nothing and put on high km....
There aren't really benefits just the pension fund that is a great benefit

Working at Metropolitan helped me challenge myself in so many way. I was working with clients with different personalities everyday of which some of them were rude so I learnt to approach everyone and treat them fairly always. I learnt to work under pressure because I always had to meet deadlines because it's a sales company and you have to have had a certain number of sales before a certain period of time. Working here helped me to grow in working as an individual and as a team and it also helped in decision making. So overall I would say Metropolitan really did help me a lot.

i would mostly spent a day capturing data of my clients to a system and making phone calls to make follow up on clients who seems to be interested in opening account in metropolitan.i have learned to interact effectively with different people from different background and i have also learned to work under pressure.the hardest part of the job is when i didn't have enough client to get a decent salary because i was payed based on how many clients i have in my name.the enjoyable part was when i helped clients for payment after they have claimed their matured policies.

Metropolitan is the worst company to work for. They promised me a good basic salary for 3 months. after three months the basic salary was taken away and I was demoted. That had a huge impact on my salary(take home pay) their medical aid is too expensive and you can not even dare to use it because it is too limited. Working for Metropolitan is the worst experience for any working person.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Bad bad bad employment opportunity. Be careful when applying for a job at metropolitan.
