The company was fun to work for, the basic was nice plus we earned commission for exceeding individual target, for being part of contributing toward the region target we got rewarded with trips and being part of achievers club. Development was there for every product we had to sell it helped a lot because we sold what we were very informed of. I loved working there unfortunately the long hours and no off that i made myseld work to be the best and earn more deprived me time to raise my kids.
Pros
Free lunches, free team braais every week. Petrol money every week and airtime every month.
Cons
Long hours.

Excellent management team, team work is encouraged.

Internal processes need to be re-evaluated and improved.

Reaching targets through all odds made the job tedious.


Flexible hours and servicing or advising clients on a daily basis made the job enjoyable.
Pros
Flexible working hours, field work, employee benefits
Cons
not being paid if targets are not meet.

Old Mutual is an entity that operates from a disparagement portfolio, where overall processes are concentrated to an individual line manager thus reducing independence, job satisfaction and frustrating growth. There is no clear-cut job advancement and security, because the remuneration structure is purely commission based. The job culture is also unclear because of the style of management.
Pros
the training is profitable, yes.
Cons
There tends to be favouritism

Been with Old mutual for over 5 years broken service. Excellent company to work for. As a financial adviser, your monthly income is hugely dependent on whether your clients are loyal to their premiums. No amount of screening or background checks can prepare you for if and when a client suffers financially. Once their income is affected, their premiums to policies suffer. Once this happens , my income suffers. No matter how hard i push myself and no matter how hard i work at my job, my income never displays my effort. Its heart breaking and frustrating. I therefore need more stability in terms of income
Pros
Environment
Cons
Income
