Too much expectations on sales

Well, working at Old Mutual was the best thing ever for me. I really wished that I'd grow in the company and be the better person I've ever wished to be. Even though it was a working place, it was a fun place to be at. Old Mutual is a work place where every individual would really want to be part of. It does not matter which department is.
The incentives were quite impressive, motivating an individual about his /her duties as and employee at Old Mutual.

Financial freedom is another thing. You become fancial free. Because you set your own targets there for the amount of money you'd like to earn as an individual. You become more as a self employed person.

Honestly speaking, I had a great time working there. Not even a single day I'd ever regret it waking up and going to the building in Pinelands, every day. It was awesome. The food in the canteens was also great. That I can never forget too. Safe environment to work at. Never had any system issues. Everything was of a professional experience. Salaries were always paid on time.

Pros
Reasonably working hours
Cons
Enough break intervals

It's a nice environment
Stressing sales

You need to make sure you are good and tolerant of rude clients and management, racism is too much need be careful if you are black

I feel like i did not get time to prove myself as a sales consultant as my manager did not fight for renewal of my contracf due to her personal reasons. Other than that Old Mutual is a great company

Typical day at work is going through emails. What i have learned is to check if clients details are correct & that feedback needs to be provided weekly. Management was great. The workplace culture is diverse. The hardest part is keeping the finacial advisors clients happy with old mutuals slow staff

I enjoyed working at Old Mutual a lot. The environment was very relaxed yet fast paced as well. Teamwork was great and management very involved and helpful. The only problem is that most positions are contract positions and becoming permanent is not easy.

Working at Old Mutual is a great experience. The problem I experienced was being limited to service employees earning R15000 and above.
I resigned because if I don't meet target I don't earn anything for that month

Salary is too little it does not cover the expenses it does not help to uplift you, unable to pay for basic needs. You get less motivate at the end of the month pension is also growing too little. The work is okay the culture and the people you work with excellent.
