I feel like i did not get time to prove myself as a sales consultant as my manager did not fight for renewal of my contracf due to her personal reasons. Other than that Old Mutual is a great company

productive

It was fun working at old mutual the team and my manager were great,we sometimes have our morning meeting addressing matters on our team and how can we do better everyday in terms of target and issue better business. I have learned time management is the best because you are to chase your targets you have no tie to waste. management is got a great life style. my team mates are great people to work with. The hardest part of the job is when you are not getting any clients to buy the products, or when they clients are cancelling so meaning no money for you. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you have issued a lot of business and your clients have paid a lot, so meaning lot of money coming into your bank account.

Pros

can determine your salary before you even get paid

Cons

none

This is a very productive and pressured environment as there are targets to meet. It is also fun there would be staff parties to try to distress the teams and awards to acknowledge their hard working.

Pros

Free lunches and award ceremonies

Cons

long hours

fun work place

was working as a consultant where had to give clients loans ,servicing clients on their policies,referring clients who have shortfall on their policies to the advisers,I have learnt a lot when seeing clients struggles also noticed that for old mutual having door to door branches is a good thing for clients , enjoyed engage with so many people get to understand more of problems which benefits our industry. hardest part was then a client wants a loan and she o he do not qualify which makes a client feel bad as well my self feel bad because my performance has been rated according to how many loans issued on the monthly basis, so loved the company business ethics .

Pros

free lunch

Cons

none

It was healthy and clean environment, helping each other and on fridays we would go out as advisors and have fun.

The company would take us out when the team consistency made our targets, sometimes we had our Monday meetings in Parliament which was the most memorable.

Pros

When we made our targets for previouse week then monday they would make breakfast Coffee and muffins

Cons

Yes they would let us work long only if we were nowhere near reaching our target.
