The most useful review selected by Indeed
You will have those days when you feel Sales are booming and you ask yourself month-end clients are cancelling their policies is very stressful to work with selling products. Sometimes pressure will make you have sleepless night and long hours in order to reach your target It’s a nice company to work for because they have benefits such as medical aid, Educational programme Faise you learn a lot from insurance company…I so wish they can introduce wellness programs for employees to be able to deal with Stress Fun days we will have functions and get rewards and be entertained by various well known people…It’s a great company 1 can work for and learn all the obstacles of life and Characters of humans…

Pros

Educational program

Cons

Long hours

Stressful

There is no support from management except for applying pressure. They want 10 written policies a week, 2 or 3 daily submissions otherwise you report at 7h30 to account why you couldn’t submit 2 lives . Management threatens staff.

Pros

None

Cons

No care

Productive workplace

Good company but no career growth. OM is a global company so expect loads of work. The management is neutral, just have tough skin. Just work hard & know why you're here then you won't have any issues.

Stressful

Stressful work environment. The pressure is not realistic,exoecting employees to have 3clients a day. Abusive in meetings,threatening ur job. You have no social life,always anxious and stressed. Many resign each day. The company doesn't care to investigate why. U are forced to resign for ur own sanity or ul forever be on sick leave.

Cons

We had a good medical aid .

Taking part in activities like the projects, reaching out to the community

The community Builder project and Share and Care projects is the best thing I ever did at Old Mutual, reaching out to your community. This kind of projects make you want to do more for people. To me its about looking out for each other and be there for your community.

Stressful

Long hours, a lot of pressure from management. Work overtime including weekends, the pay is okay but not nearly worth the mental toll it takes on you. I was miserable all the time
