Good working environment and incentives but there is limited growth advantage is they teach you your re5 and pay for your test when it's time to go write it

Productive, fast paced and fun environment

Fast paced environment and stressful working environment. Targets are set for you and you have to meet them. Job is commission based so you get what you put in. Management is very supportive and ensure that you are successful, they also have incentives that motivate you to achieve targets required.

Can be very stressful

Pressurized environment, you have to be thick-skinned. It’s always about sales and getting clients to take out policies…. But great employee benefits, events and year end trips

The work environment is good, however quite competitive

Working at Old mutual was a good experience, however the manner in which I had to leave work due to retrenched was distasteful. I was forced to sign resignation.

Pros

Working at your own time.

Cons

High targets

Best insurance company

All I can say they'll sell you a dream only to find out that you were really dreaming

Old Mutual Managers are the most important people in the company. If you a Financial Advisor you in for the ride you will work day and night for your manager then you get nothing in return. Sometimes you don't even get your commission. Then decide to resign you will be debarred Representatives.

unhappy

Bunch of Liars and thieves. They make promises that they cannot keep. Management does not know what they are doing. They do not tell the whole story. Unrealistic targets are set.

Very good company

I worked very well in the company and got paid very well. In terms of upgrading it was 100%. Benefits were superb. Keep it up. I think the company should try give their employees better opportunities in top positions.

Premium should grow with cover, improve cover benefits. Refund in consolation clients who contributed towards their respective cover and for some reason cannot proceed with premium contribution.

Great learnership

Old Mutual offers a great learnership programme. It consists of a 24 Month Academy which is intense but allows us to learn a lot. The downfall in my experience is that it is very difficult to earn a stable income.
