I had the best time at OMF. I left the company because I had other things to do but overall I was happy with everything

If you want to be the best at Old mutual just focus at your targets and work hard every day to accomplish them. Discipline is key when you work with people. Be accountable and don't forget that every client you meet is business

Productive fun and stressful at the same time

Working at old mutual was the best opportunity for me to be introduced into the wolrd of markieting and sales. Having studies sport management with marketing in it I have gained a lot of useful information about the industry. I have learned how to keep it coll and calm under unforeseen circumstances. It is a stressfulo job but once you get used to it and have strageies on how to tackle your day it becomes more fun joyful.

Pros

Proper training

Cons

Too much expectations on sales

Productive and fun work place

Well, working at Old Mutual was the best thing ever for me. I really wished that I'd grow in the company and be the better person I've ever wished to be. Even though it was a working place, it was a fun place to be at. Old Mutual is a work place where every individual would really want to be part of. It does not matter which department is.The incentives were quite impressive, motivating an individual about his /her duties as and employee at Old Mutual.Financial freedom is another thing. You become fancial free. Because you set your own targets there for the amount of money you'd like to earn as an individual. You become more as a self employed person.Honestly speaking, I had a great time working there. Not even a single day I'd ever regret it waking up and going to the building in Pinelands, every day. It was awesome. The food in the canteens was also great. That I can never forget too. Safe environment to work at. Never had any system issues. Everything was of a professional experience. Salaries were always paid on time.

Pros

Reasonably working hours

Cons

Enough break intervals

Management

I feel like i did not get time to prove myself as a sales consultant as my manager did not fight for renewal of my contracf due to her personal reasons. Other than that Old Mutual is a great company

Productive

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

Very professional and yet relaxed atmosphere

I enjoyed working at Old Mutual a lot. The environment was very relaxed yet fast paced as well. Teamwork was great and management very involved and helpful. The only problem is that most positions are contract positions and becoming permanent is not easy.
