An established Corporate
Old Mutual is what you would expect from a large corporation. Good management structures in place and have been for a long time. At times it may become to feel as if you're just another number and it can be tricky to work your way up to higher positions as the senior staff members have been around for a long time

Productive and challenging
Many objective and little time to achieve. Precise planning required each day. A collaborate effectively with other staff/ departments. learning experiences about the pension fund act and the financial sector. Learnt about the new policies such as Money laundering, TCF and PPI.
Management are always looking to safe cost and practice LEAN principles and exercise authority when required. The culture is generally a productive, fun and self management culture.

The hard part of the job is to perform multiple tasks of other ex-employees without extra remuneration.

The best part of the job is to work hard, catch up with your work and to be rewarded with a nomination and cash incentives.

it was okay
At first the experience was very good but as soon as the manager changed to a different one, that is when I felt the pressure and started not to like it, because the new manager changed everything

It was amazing working for old mutual, the environment and the people.
I enjoyed working for old mutual, it was like home to me. I met the most amazing people in my team and other teams. I learned so much about my job, working with other people and myself. It was my first real job. I was on contract unfortunately so my stay was very short. Given a chance I'd go back and on a permanent basis this time.

Productive and great floor support from colleagues w.r.t on the job training
Requires an intellectual who isn't afraid of being vocal and going against the flow of the tide. Be eager. Take initiative but go about it in a manner that is withing the departmental process.
Pros

Check and balances
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.
Pros
Working hours
Cons
incentives

Full of diversity and hard workers
START AT 8AM AND FINISH AT 5PM.

Everyday there is something new and challenging.


They have taught me so much, of which mentioning a few that stood out, everyone is equal, and we work together as team to reach the top.


Our management is well equipped for their position and plays as our mentors when need be. They supportive and goes out of their way to accommodate and satisfy everyone.


The hardest part is not being recognized because there's so much going on.


The most enjoyable is our freebies and rewards. Early leaving. Our teambuilding and staff events.]
Pros
Lunch monies, Medical aid, Wellbeing support
Cons
Recognisition

Great working experience.
During my 5 year tenure in the UK, I had learnt so much and also adapted to a change in culture.

Being independent, responsible and meeting and working for "foreigners' seemed like a 5 year holiday.


Exposure to work-life balance was great, especially when working in a different city. I think its the best working experience ever.

Productive and Fun work place.
It was when an angry client called in regarding her debit order that didn't go off from her account that she has with us.
I was still new in the team, I apologized to client on behalf of the Company and of the consultant who assisted her and I politely asked client to please stay on the line while I had to gather all the necessary information regards her query.

I learnt that if you stay calm all the time you will never go wrong.

I asked my colleagues for assistance and I got back to the client with all the full and positive feedback and client thanked me and I could hear that she was smiling.

My colleagues are so helpful because we work as a Team.

The hardest part of my job is only when I can't get hold of the client knowing that his/her accounts will fall behind if I don't confirm the information from client.

I enjoy every moment I spent in my work place, I feel at home because we respect and accommodate any culture within the company, we live our company values at Old Mutual.
