Too many sales calls

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
They offer a lot of training and a lot of support but still the targets are too high, for you to make a reasonable commission you must work late almost everyday day

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

Training and development, discipline and intergrity are core values together with respect, accountability and discipline

Training and development journey, which is mainly people and customercentric and focused on enabling one to self actualisation and discipline, integrity as well as leadership which is characterised by example to fellow workers and subordinates. Fairly positive culture and promotion of good relationships.

Pros

Training and Development

Cons

Not being able to work in location of choice

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

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.

Productive

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.

Pros

Knock off early on Fridays, subject to target reached.

Cons

Getting people to sign-up.

Productive and hard working environment.

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.

Pros

Cooooffffeeeeee

Cons

Changing rem structure

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

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.
