A professional work place

Working at old mutual has been very exciting, the team is united and management very hands-on. Getting to deal with so many different people on a daily basis, teaches you more and more about people skills and how to interact with them in a way that is in alignment with Old Mutuals principles.

Profitable and fun when we are preforming well

I have learned a lot and the most important thing is that they care about their staff.The environment is very user friendlyManagement do support and advise and inspire for all team members to succeed.It's easy to adjust to the winning culture and making more money, being successful in your personal space and at workwhen your not preforming it can be hard hey When you win with your team and your branch is meeting target and exceeding it, plus the month when you get your dividends and qualifying for sales competition and earning more money monthly.

Takes a while to get recognition

Overall it's a beautiful company to work for. I'd recommend it to people who want to grow within the financial services industry. Opportunities are endless if you in the right team

Fun and casual place to work

I'd say my experience at Old Mutual brought their culture to life! It was amazing working with people from so many backgrounds, and learning from more experienced colleagues, and the training was the best part of the job for the first 5 months, but things got real toward the end of those 3 months.

Pros

Fuel allowances on training trips

Cons

Chasing targets

The company has always taken long time review and understand that change, challenge and opportunity are the onlu contraits

Great company ro work for with lots of opportunities and growth , they take care of their staff by taking them for training, there's team work , employees offers help when they need to. It teaches you to manage yourself and i learned so much and gained alot of experience to work as a professional. Working under pressure to meet the target is one of the thing I have learned. Great place to work for with the culture that is defined with high performance.

It is a good company to work

. Very competitive environment. Adapt easily or else you will be irrelevant. Management is on point. Best workplace culture ever. Chasing targets and (OMF) lower salaries than other colleagues in other departments at the same role size.. Recognition for the hard work you put in monthly.

Pros

Becoming shareholders not just employees

Cons

Long hours

Stressful and unstructured

rude managers and no skills to manage people. All they wanted was sales, forced to sing, pray and clap your hands. Being punished and embarrassed Infront of others. harassment was also a factor. No room for growth. The culture is not great and you do not really have a knock off time. Always being threatend to be fired. The environment was very bad. Working there for me was not conducive.

Pros

Work Functions, you develop a tough skin for sales

Cons

No respect, no knock off time, stressful
