Stressful work environment, unrealistic targets to meet production, unprofessional management depression cause by high targets of production If you are a lady will expirience miscarriage, you will not have time for your family ,you can't sleep without meeting the targets of 3clients per day who take a policy. You will dig a grave for yourself if you be working as financial advisorEven if you meet your targets you will not be appreciated or rewarded
You manage your time
This was a very stressful environment to work in, because it is target driven. There's a lot of room for growth, and career advancements though. Learn a lot about the financial industry.
Acknowledged, and growth
Long hours while pushing target
Methodical work that is characterised by many checks and balances that can not be omitted when capturing business, where if omitted will invalidate that business, To me hardest part is to make all necessary checks and advising the right product is the most enjoyable part.

worked from home
Used my own fuel
I had such an amazing time working with Old Mutual and Work Africa. Old Mutual - We worked long hours trying to get people open their new bank account (Money Account) and we did well this year. Work Africa - Promoting food,all the new recipes and people loved it. The workers and also employers for both these companies were quite friendly with us,the promoters.
Free lunches from Work Africa
The job is challenging and target driven, requires one to be diligent and work efficient. I have learnt the importance of have self-discipline, drive and self-motivation. The culture around the office is that there is always a helping hand, employees are willing to engage and assist.
Stress and clawbacks
It is an old company that people recognise and are well aware of its achievements over the years. It is a great company to work for, especially for people who are not well educated but have got a passion for sales.
Working for Old Mutual is fun and exciting and easy because Old Mutual firstly provides training that makes it easy for you to do your job and they provide you with resources. Bonuses are being given to staff and incentives and I mostly believe that its things like that which motivates the staff to do more
Only during trainings or indictions
Typical day> Cold calls in the morning, meeting throughout the day, follow up calls in the afternoon. What I learnt> I learnt the value of insurance in ones life. Meeting deadlines. Organisation and time management. Management> was very supportive and encouraging, providing training as well Co-worker> on bad days, they were my support and strength. In as much as we were competitive, we helped each other grow Hardest Part of the job> keeping and maintaining your client base Enjoyable part> incentives. The work environment and helping people better their lives
Being at the office in the morning to make phone calls and follow up on the previous day's work. I've learned that you can't work alone in this industry you have to work as a team, management is not that involved with the employees which can be a disadvantage to the employee. The co-workers are always wiling to assist in which ever way and that is helpful and the hardest part of the job is when the client doesn't want to close the business due to certain reasons. When all the business you submit is issued and you are being recognised for your efforts .
There's always a celebration.
