yes it a productive and fun working place

I personally find working with Old Mutual interesting we get to meet different people and get to learn how to talk and treat people with their different personality. the hardest part of the job to chase clients, we do lots of training every month to learn a lot about our products and how to treat clients.

Pros

when we reach our target we do get free luch

Productive

I have learned to manage my time well as I started working as a Financial Advisor and working under pressure making sure that I deliver to the best of my ability by pushing beyond boundaries making sure that I reach my targets. Team leading as my manager always gave us weekly tasks to assist other team members and making sure that they are meeting what is expected of them. Discipline as our job was flexible but at the same time we had to make sure that our time we spend wisely. Compliance is critical as we had to make sure clients provide necessary documents and we have to build a healthy relationship with our clients and giving proper advise disclosing every information that is relevant to the clients. Mentoring from established advisors training to make sure that we are competent in front of our clients and confident, making sure that we know our products.

Pros

Team Buildings. Training

Cons

Too many meetings.

Productive enviroment

A typical day at Old Mutual was often a productive one because the environment motivates you to do better. The staff was very friendly and warm which made it easier to be more comfortable. I learned a lot about admin work as in sorting out files, how to organise the diary, set appointments, how to do your basic filling, scanning and making appointments. The management always motivated us to do better, strict but friendly too. So work was always delivered on time. My co-workers were hard working and always meeting targets. The hardest part of my Job was communicating with clients in their different languages. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting different kinds of people and learning more about the company.

Pros

Team Building activities

Cons

Long Hours
