I enjoyed being part of old mutual family. It is like home to me. The environment is very good and they treat people well. Old mutual is the best company I ever worked for.
We were having free launches from the mananger
The hours were very good and reasonable
Stressful work environment, unrealistic targets to meet production, unprofessional management depression cause by high targets of production If you are a lady will expirience miscarriage, you will not have time for your family ,you can't sleep without meeting the targets of 3clients per day who take a policy. You will dig a grave for yourself if you be working as financial advisorEven if you meet your targets you will not be appreciated or rewarded
You manage your time
I enjoyed working at the company, i was smartly dressed every day and i enjoyed every day i worked there.
The worst wotking for old mutual is that the company does not look after its employees. For an example the company do not offer basic salary, its a commission based salary only. It is very difficult to survive months to months without getting paid some of the months due to lot of reasons, one of those reasons being lapses from a client.If it wasn't for the salary structure I would have been still working there till today.
Old Mutual helps to bring the best out of their employees with continues trainings and meetings, helping us meeting our objectives.Old Mutual is by far the best company to work for.
Fully paid trips around the world
Working on saturdays
It's was fun and productive but salary wasn't enough for the job we were doing,we were treated fairly enough but i feel our department was not given enough attention and resources.the environment was freindly and so were the managers and my colleagues.
Self driven and self motivated. More about life cover and investments. Management would create an efficient working atmosphere and obtain willing cooperation in getting the job done by adjusting one's style on the twin dimensions of task and relationship behavior. The workplace culture was more of a team effort and helping each other. The hardest part of the job was getting people to sign-up and the most enjoyable part of the job was the hours.
Knock off early on Fridays, subject to target reached.
Getting people to sign-up.
A typical day at work will start with a "bang" meeting with your manager discussing what you have planned for your day. I loved working at OM. I learned so much. I stayed in the insurance field until 2019 and would always measure the workplace culture to that of OM. I enjoyed the hard work the passion I had for the brand kept me going.
Changing rem structure
Theres a lot of room for growth, skills and qualification training programmes, needs dedication, hard work and be always eager to learn new things as we continuously learn.
Rewards and many other incentives
Hard work and long working hours, you work for your ow salary

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.
Yes there were free lunches when you perform well.
Long hours was a big problem rep up meetings and yiu need to go to taxi rank it was quite risky.
Acquired communication skills through my experience and social involvement. Work with our supervision as well as under pressure. Computer skills Microsoft office, Outlook, Sap and Microsoft PowerPoint. Good oral and written communication. I have learnt to work well with people from various cultures, norms and values. Planning, organising,. control and time keeping. Office administration- filing, diary telephone management, good client/customer orientation.
Work on weekends
I loved the values that the company goes by, I will take those values wherever I go because of the drive they put in the work place and personally. Pushing beyond boundaries, Ubuntu, accountability, respect and empathy 👏 wow. Thank you Old Mutual
The productivity is good at all times. To put your goals in place. To focus on what you are doing on a daily basis. The good environment to work in.The best client services you can get. I enjoy my work mostly because I like to work with customers. The customer is the most important person in your business.
