It was a productive but when it comes to management on area level was not good.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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.

Pros

Yes there were free lunches when you perform well.

Cons

Long hours was a big problem rep up meetings and yiu need to go to taxi rank it was quite risky.

Old Mutual - Review

The company has a lot of work to do as far as transformation is concerned. There was a lack of willingness to adjust to new things within the company and I joined whilst it was undergoing a lot of structural changes. Management are often bullies and supported by HR.

Productive and fun

From beginning to end of day there is a buzz. A hive of activity that makes one know that we are in the business of satisfying clients. I've learned a wealth of knowledge as Mutual was my first admin job. Management is of the best I've worked with. Work culture was an important aspect of being an employee as dedication, commitment, professionalism and quality was primary. Sheer volume against the targets set. Learning and growing in the RFA EB business.

Started as an Advisor and promoted to management

An inspiring sales and management job, tough at times but enjoyable. Enjoying working with team. Inconsiderate line manager was toughest. Competitions and conventions made job enjoyable. A company with a culture of high performance.

unhappy

Bunch of Liars and thieves. They make promises that they cannot keep. Management does not know what they are doing. They do not tell the whole story. Unrealistic targets are set.

Line manager

Line Manager was very difficult and doesn't have proper work ethic. He was rude to the entire staff and made everyone feel small and incompetent when addressing the staff

Financial services

Helping clients with their financial needs and how to treat them fairly shows some respect and responsibility. Being analytical, well organized and time management.

I learnt that what you put in is what you get out. Hard work pays off.

A day in the office for me was unpleasant the people that work there are not friendly and are more worried about looking cool than making money. I didn’t fit in nor want to fit in to the culture. The management is helpful but also rude and inconsiderate. I have my reasons for saying these things.

Culture has changed

Unfortunately the company has gone through some serious culture shifts in the last couple of years, it also received bad publicity lately with a CEO being fired. This was a great company to work for and won the Employer of the Year award in 2016 and 2017, unfortunately the culture shift under new management has brought about huge stress levels and job uncertainty.

Pros

Good benefits

Cons

No promotional opportunities.
