Don't ever promise client's what you cannot offer always try to be realistic.Avoid mixing business with pleasure so that you won't get any distructions at work.
Not the place if you want to progress and learn about other industries. Also they are always making last minute decisions without consulting the staff.
Too little people in departments for the workload
Not an ideal if you want to budget or you're a family person with monthly responsibilities. Managers are rude and greedy, the company too requires that you pay them money given to you as comission when a client's doesn't honor theirs signature.
Cleints are are unreliable
It's a very big and we'll known company, It is a great company to work for and they take care of their employees. Also for their clients making sure that every employee is happy.
Felt I was unfairly treated while in training as well as a total lack of sympathy after my MVA in which I injured my spine requiring surgery. I left while recuperating. Feel like I was robbed of building a successful career.
Excellent brand & marketing
Extremely stressful initial period while still in our introductory phase to the organisation.
Sanlam (particularly, Sanlam Investment Group) is the place to work hard, be recognised and rewarded, with excellent incentive packages and a fun working environment. You'll get all the training you want, but be prepared to put the work behind it. If you need a coach or mentor, you'll get one. Lots of opportunity for career growth and relocation across the various groups and investment clusters, including the UK office. There is a strong focus on work/life balance, with a strong culture of athletes: swimmers, marathon runners, mountain bikers and more. A relatively flat, non-hierarchical structure compared to most corporates. The CEO has an open door policy and genuinely cares about his people - all of them - including the service staff. Very diverse in terms of culture, language, gender and ethnic groups. Very strong strong on transformation. Very progressive culture; real people; real values. Highly recommended as one of the top employers to work for.
Subsidized meals in a 4-star canteen, top coffee baristas, shops and pharmacy, work-life balance, non-hierarchical and warm culture.
Be prepared to work hard; not the place for slackers
1. Busy and professional environment. 2. Learned their way of working expectations and their systems. 3. Strong and ambitious management. 4. Friendly and helpful culture. 5. Dealing with difficult people. 6. Was very comfortable and enjoyed doing travel bookings and arranging private holiday bookings. Also enjoyed formatting reports and documents. And enjoyed the friendships.
Sanlam has taught me to be organised and focus at all the times , ive learned and adopted that respect must be my fisrt rule.im a go getter a determined person with mission and objectives of my vision
Lunch while you are busy prispecting
Typical work week on Mondays to Thursdays we go out looking for clients to sell insurance to, we make appointments with our clients and do presentations. Friday will be office day where we will have team meeting. Due to the environment I have been exposed to, I have learnt to work independently as well as in a team. As a result of working in a fast paced environment handling work pressure and work life balance has been easy.
As I have said above that sanlam is the great company to work for. You work on own time and it is up to you if how much you wanna get paid, meaning you have to push yourself. The environment is amazing and the staff, managers and supervisors are so supportive and understanding the circumstances of being in the field that is not easy.
