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

Unfair manangement

MY MMI review I really liked the independecy and exposure the job provided however it just had too much uncertainty in terms of income. My role included identifying prospects and book appointments for presantation and eventually result to sales which means after the presantation a client must takeout a product which was not always guaranteed due to various factors ie the conditions of the economy high rate of indebted population and casualisation in the labour force to mension but a few
Pros
flexible hours
Cons
income uncertainty

A day at metropolitan was a day of hard work , chasing clients and reaching your targets, It was hard to keep up at times with admin and signing up different clients for different polices. I learnt a great deal. From getting your life sorted financially to managing time and reaching targets. I learnt a little of everything from marketing to admin. the hardest part of the job was to meet new prospects( clients) and maintaining the clientele. what i enjoyed the most of the job was meeting new people everyday and helping clients prepare for future and making sure things are in place should anything happen to them.
Pros
flexi hours
Cons
long hours, getting new prospects

Achieving Sales Targets is the heart of the job. Fun working environment, flexible working hours. The hardest part of the job is having to travel long distances to meet potential clients.

As a financial adviser i don't stay at the office, i travel around recruiting people which is fun because i meet with different people, furthermore even myself i become wise when it comes to use my finances. The hardest part of this work is when you didn't meet the sales target for that particular month or some of the clients didn't pay their policies.
Pros
If we have training at office we get free lunch
Cons
I work over time only when my sales target is high.
