Well, working at Old Mutual was the best thing ever for me. I really wished that I'd grow in the company and be the better person I've ever wished to be. Even though it was a working place, it was a fun place to be at. Old Mutual is a work place where every individual would really want to be part of. It does not matter which department is.The incentives were quite impressive, motivating an individual about his /her duties as and employee at Old Mutual.Financial freedom is another thing. You become fancial free. Because you set your own targets there for the amount of money you'd like to earn as an individual. You become more as a self employed person.Honestly speaking, I had a great time working there. Not even a single day I'd ever regret it waking up and going to the building in Pinelands, every day. It was awesome. The food in the canteens was also great. That I can never forget too. Safe environment to work at. Never had any system issues. Everything was of a professional experience. Salaries were always paid on time.
Pros
Reasonably working hours
Cons
Enough break intervals

Working with a team makes the Job easy, Management they are very understanding when it comes to the employees, they listen to employees opinion about business plans, they motivate the employees all the time. Provide us with trainings to have more understanding of what we offering clients, and give some incentives like Sparkfolio to motivate us reach our business targets
Pros
Sparkfolios
Cons
Targrts

I remember when one of my colleagues sweared at me and I reported the matter to my manager who just said I must adapt and stop being so soft, this is sales. There's no professionalism at all. Target is high but the commission is little. I used to cry every morning before going to work, beause I never wanted to see my abusive manager. If you looking for depression go do sales at Oldmutual.

I have been with the company for more than 4 years now. Its been interesting but sometimes very stressful because one should meet target every day, and do not consider your yesterday but now. If one didnt meet target you called up to account.
Pros
beautiful places for training and food
Cons
work sometimes on weekend to boost your sales (voluntarily)

Typical day work was cold calling looking for clients, whom you can visit and review their policies. Introduce them to new ones and ask referrals for new clients. On Fridays we have a directorate meeting to see if the team has reached our weekly goal. The hardest part of the job is convincing a client on how how he need the product your providing. The most enjoyable part is reaching your goals.
Pros
Flexible hours
Cons
too much driving

Working at old mutual was exciting, meeting new clients everyday. Presenting old mutual policies to people was not a struggle to me because everything about old mutual products was in my mind, bringing new client everyday and meeting target.
Pros
Day off
Cons
Meeting target

External sales is very challenging and demanding in that you had properly plan for two weeks work and you had to create and build relationship with prospects

As I have worked for old mutual all I have seen there is loving and supporting people, they made me feel like I was home away from home I would even miss work during the weekend because of the kindness and support I have felt and got in that company.
