The management needs to motivate the workers not push on targets only without checking on them are they coping or not. Yes the business its about target and all but some months are not the same when it comes to business.
Pros
Yes there were free lunches when you perform well.
Cons
Long hours was a big problem rep up meetings and yiu need to go to taxi rank it was quite risky.

Job Culture
To much changes and movements in department, management don't have any people skills to treat staff with respect and is very inpatient. Unreachable and unfair target that is expected of staff to reach each and every month. There is no time to have fun as it is just work, work, work. Micro management, extremely target driven and nothing is an excuse if you don't reach that target each and every month. Management is targeting and treating certain staff with disrespect and no patient or with correct people skills. Team Leaders humiliate you in front of everyone. Hardest part of the job is to reach the unfair targets without any assistance from some Team leaders. There is no positive motivation and support from team leaders.
Pros
nothing
Cons
long hours, work 11 hours most days without any overtime payment

Smaller teams and very collaborative culture. typically there are great initiatives to foster an inclusive environment. Your experience can differ based on the specific department and based on the size of the organisation, there will be entire functions that you will never engage.
Pros
staff benefits, head office has all the facilities, gym, shops etc
Cons
strong work ethic and delivery focus leading to long hours.

Very busy but the level of professionalism that the staff and customers would give, would shorten the day and make the day unfold smoothly. Appreciation and Respecting the next person. Management style was more of a vanguard leadership, where everyone pulls together towards the same direction to achieve the same goal. Hardest part would be missing a day at work as that would make you feel sick or feel like you not complete. I always enjoy team buildings and getting to know my colleagues better
Pros
Vouchers

One would learn interacting with different people daily. I learned different cultures how to work around issues and people. Problem solving is sometimes difficult but I enjoyed to have made a client happy. Be tasked by a manager to control general office problem or complicated matters resulting from employees and clients.
Pros
entertainment
Cons
extra hours with no pay

I enjoy my job due to the fact that I can interact with different kinds of people. I had no selling experience, and over time have been able to develop that skill. My co-workers and previous management continually added to my growth in this space. I am now ready for change in job, as my personal situation has changed. I am now looking for a new challenge that does not require travelling. I also would like to move into a position that does not require selling, but where I can use my skills of presentation, admin and affinity to working with systems.
Pros
Being your own boss
Cons
Travelling

I had a client that missed 2 premiums and Her Mother passed away. She called me crying like a baby and I had to cancel the appointments for the day and attend Her. I took her personally to our offices with her documents. When She was told that the money will be available in 48 hours in her account She couldn't believe, She was very happy and I got many clients from Her family because of the service we provided. I have learned that dealing with clients direct will always hold you accountable for the promises you give them. Management assisted to the client and co-operated that a client felt so special. the hardest part it was to deal with her emotions (crying during the process). What I enjoyed most is that She has little faith in Us and that we received more business from Her family and co-workers

Travelled within and outside south africa. Learned alot about other cultures and met people with diverse backgrounds. Management style the last 2 years left so much to be desired, the first 4 years had a great manager who understood the industry and took time to understand the staff members. Co-workers always willing to assist, the new managers who were not properly inducted, the job was challenging every day seemed like a new day with different challenges.
Pros
Job Satisfaction, Clear Career Paths, Clear Job descriptions
Cons
Unrealistic Managers
