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.

fun work place

I have learned a lot on how to deal with all types of clients and how to manage a messy situation. My confidence was boosted , whereby I am not shy anymore , I can approach clients. The work place felt like home as we did everything as a team and those who needed support our manager gave full support so we can win as a team. All the hard work was recognized and also those trying was also recognized. We were all motivated as we had competitions an how to improve our work , as a team we divided into 3 teams that competed every week.

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.

Productive Workplace

Old mutual it's a place where you can grow into as an employee, It gave us lot of opportunities though it was not as easy as you think. Working with sales has never been easy especially if you know that your salary is depending on the results you deliver.

Pros

No free lunches

Great work place

I was employed at Old Mutual under one of the Development Managers. I was very junior and inexperienced when I started but I grew into it and did extremely well.
