Stressful and unstructured

rude managers and no skills to manage people. All they wanted was sales, forced to sing, pray and clap your hands. Being punished and embarrassed Infront of others. harassment was also a factor. No room for growth. The culture is not great and you do not really have a knock off time. Always being threatend to be fired. The environment was very bad. Working there for me was not conducive.

Pros

Work Functions, you develop a tough skin for sales

Cons

No respect, no knock off time, stressful

old mutual if a good company to work for.their employees are united and always support one another.whether is work related or personal

typical day at work would be on mondays if you never planed your day well,then everything will fall apart,what i have learned is that you need to plan in advance.work culture is extremely amazing and enjoyable.reaching targets sometimes can be a bit of a challenge.what i enjoy most is i knock off at any-time as long as my job for the day is done.

Pros

we get free petrol money, cell phones and airtimes

Cons

we work long hours and an extra mile

Professional work environment

Excellent management team, team work is encouraged. Internal processes need to be re-evaluated and improved. Reaching targets through all odds made the job tedious. Flexible hours and servicing or advising clients on a daily basis made the job enjoyable.

Pros

Flexible working hours, field work, employee benefits

Cons

not being paid if targets are not meet.
