Takes a while to get recognition

Overall it's a beautiful company to work for. I'd recommend it to people who want to grow within the financial services industry. Opportunities are endless if you in the right team

Good place to gain experience

Old Mutual is a good place to work for but they seem not to care about contracted employees. I was informed on the day that my contract ended that it would not be renewed and I would be unemployed. They do not make staff permanent, it is easier for them to have contracted staff so they don’t have to provide employee benefits.

Pros

Good salary

Cons

No job security

Not so great company to work for

The company's employee policies are excellent however, they are good on paper and not in practice. Nepotism is rife. Those related or known by management seem to develop and progress. No formal inductions for some departments. Growing and developing within the business is another challenge.

Pros

Salary is paid on time.

Cons

Too much pressure. In some instances overtime is paid in vouchers.

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.

Very volatile environment

Old mutual is a great place to work at. Crunch time is crunch time and they take the variety if cultures very seriously. The company itself looks after their employees.

Pros

Recognition of employees

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.

Lovely learning experience

I sold various long term financial products and also did Retirement Fund Administration Old Mutual. I dealt with outbound clients and cold calling on a daily basis.

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

Transport home for late night overtime (also well compensated for overtime)

Cons

Long hours

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

What I learned

I learned how to communicate with people from different races and religions, and that made me a better person. The most enjoyable part of the job was to interact with different types of people all over South Africa via telephone.

Pros

Free lunch vouchers on Saturday shifts

Cons

Some team leaders do not have the proper interpersonal skills
