My salary was too little. I had to work over christmas and did not get any overtime. I did not have the neccessary training and had to figure most things out by myself.

Worked in a team of 6 on the floor handling calls, emails and walk in clients. Had to know your product in order to assist the clients or the brokers.

The company is BS, if you're not white skinned you won't get the benefits your white counterparts will get.
Management sucks, HR is never for the employees.

Salaries are based on skin colors

Imagine a whole manager conducting a meeting in Afrikaans, that how it was being a black female there.

No advancements if you are black, they'd rather bring someone's newly matriculated niece to be your manager than to promote a black person who fully qualifies for the post.
Pros
Going home at the end of the day
Cons
Everything

I enjoyed the collaborative nature of the work environment, whereby advisers are encouraged to refer business to other departments who specialize in different aspects of the business, be it wealth management, stockbroking, wills and estates or short term insurance. I believe this made our clients feel as if all their financial needs can be met in house.

They expect the best from you. It is a great company to work for, but they are demanding. The hardest part of my job was to cope with the volumes of work since I was appointed on a half-day basis. They decided later on that the position need to be a full day position because of the volume of the work. They were very nice and accommodating during the retrenchment process.

Pros
Well established
Cons
Not every body fits in

We normally started at 09.00. We had agents who made our appointments to sea clients. We will then see clients between 10.00 and 17:00 and sometimes in the evenings.
The Sales Training and sales pitch was excellent, so I did extremely well and was one of the 3 Top Achievers.

Most enjoyable part was that I could chose my hours, had lots of time with my small children and made a lot of money!
Pros
Working hours and Commission based
Cons
Not really any.

No direction of what do expect.
Doing more of the adhoc that want is on the job spec.

The culture is overwhelming.

Poor grooming skills to young individuals especially those that are fresh from university.

The job specification don't agree with the actual work done.
Pros
Team work
Cons
Slow growth
