You will have job security without a doubt but the company still has a long way to go in terms of transformation plus they still base their salary offers on formal qualifications and tenure so you may be overlooked for promotions and growth opportunities if you are not formally qualified
Pros
Flexible work environment
Cons
Low salary

Worst mistake I ever made. How I regret that day, should you leave, the claws come out, always look for ways to Debar their advisers and will blacklist and put you onto credit Burea should you contest the lapses. They will make sure you never work in the financial industry again so the blue star franchises can keep your books, if you see sanlam, don't go near that company. You've Been Warned!!!!!!
Pros
You keep your life, whats left of it
Cons
Once they are done with you, you basically live a paupers life.

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.
Cons
Too little people in departments for the workload

Cleints are are unreliable

as a new manager I learned to work with different kinds of people at all time. I was required to be on site with my team members at all times. I had to travel a lot to look for business.

As time goes by the salary decreases. Management is okay. They do care about the employees well being. As long as you do the work then you will get the results.

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.
Pros
Excellent brand & marketing
Cons
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.
Pros
Subsidized meals in a 4-star canteen, top coffee baristas, shops and pharmacy, work-life balance, non-hierarchical and warm culture.
Cons
Be prepared to work hard; not the place for slackers
