Fully paid trips around the world
Working on saturdays
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.

I loved the benefits at Old Mutual, the company culture is great and they care about their employees in terms of their growth and development. They also have an onsite gym, mall and creche.
Employee benefits are great, competitive salaries, performance incentives, group life cover, free parking, onsite mall, creche and gym.
Specialized roles, exposure to a variety of functions can be limited.
Typical day at work is going through emails. What i have learned is to check if clients details are correct & that feedback needs to be provided weekly. Management was great. The workplace culture is diverse. The hardest part is keeping the finacial advisors clients happy with old mutuals slow staff
Old Mutual was by far the best companies to work for. The amazing support from management the enormous love from fellow colleagues made the environment so pleasant that one would never even feel they are at work.
Salary is too little it does not cover the expenses it does not help to uplift you, unable to pay for basic needs. You get less motivate at the end of the month pension is also growing too little. The work is okay the culture and the people you work with excellent.
You work flexible hours, but if you didn't met the daily target you must also work after hours so that you can close the gap and meet the target. You work freely because you always on the road to meet clients. I can go back work there but in a different department(e.g IT department)
Answer incoming calls, do amendments, work with brokers directly, learned that brokers always seemed to know everything, they use to the old ways, telling them about new processed in place always created problems, but I could work around that, excellent listening skills, always got great reviews/feedback from brokers, was nominated for emerald award for sales and service. was top performer in up selling products- short term insurance. I loved the wow moment of brokers and their delight when they received good service, always got good ratings. System was sometimes slow, new legislation and processes always take long to get use to, but we over came it. Utmost respect for each other's culture, respect and integrity. Salary was good, working hours was perfect, no stress, everyone did their part, team leader great to work with, always pushing you to your limits, always saw the good in others, always had a kind word.
this job needs a focused, determined, consistent, independent , prospecting person with good customer skills, telephone skills admin and computer literacy.work well with people competitive and target driven , work under pressure and honest and with good integrity.
Old mutual must make sure that they in force their culture to the Management . I work as the financial advisor on thw field at Old mutual. I'm very hard worker, quickly to learn and develop
