Bad pay

Bad pay and poor commision structure, you get overworked in branches and all management care about is their own pocket so they drive you to hit your targets but they get more commision than you....but the main problem is the salary... its horrible

Fun workplace

Even though it was fun company to work for, the Job was very stressing and they had too many demands. Selling insurances everyday is not as easy as it looks as there was a lot of convincing to do whet it came to people. I was one one of the high performers, got awards for reaching my yearly target every year that i was at Old Mutual.

Prductive working environment

One of the best insurance companies in the world and will never disappoint when coming to short-term insurance. I will recommend. It is good working with Old Mutual due to their culture and how they do things. I would say the employees are so calm and reliable.
