It's a very good company to work for,as it gives you a chance to Tagle so many challenges s on your own

I've learnt to tagle or solve challenges on my own as I was working on the field by myself, I've gained confidence and it made it easy for me to approach clients and even making presentations.

Pros

You buy your own lunch

Cons

It's possible to work after hours depending on clients

Stressful and competitive workplace

My experience working as a financial advisor at Sanlam was stressful and competitive and yet the salary I received monthly wasn't enough for me to buy toiletries, groceries and sometimes to pay rent. The job required me to travel places, recruiting clients, however, based on the salary I received monthly I wasn't able to travel those locations.

Pros

Free lunches during training.

Cons

Long hours

It's motivate and give you chance to grow with the company, I would gladly come back to the company

I worked for Sanlam and will go back again cause they teach you to be self-motivated, it's because of their short causes, I enjoyed being their consultant which is financial advisor, and give you chance, even if you don't have licence car or work you achieve it through working there

Pros

Free courses

Cons

Long hours

Productive and fun workplace

I had such a great time working at Sanlam as a financial advisor. The job was stressful from time to time but I really enjoyed interacting with my clients and that for me was the most exciting part of my job. Meeting different people with different backgrounds.

Fun and ptoductive

It was both fun and stressful, given the nature of the job. This has nothing to do with management. Overall I enjoyed every minute of my years I worked for sanlam. There was never a dull moment.

Very stressful for little money

They are introducing new ways of working while burning their employees out so many people are leaving. It really isnt a job for the faint hearted. Sanlam is like a walking mental institution people suffer in silence because they know they wont get heard. Very little money for all that work...

The work is so challanging. Sanlam is introducing ways of working that hinders his own employees. And the company is not giving valid benefits

The standard of living is challanging and the petrol price is hiking every term yet the company is not creating incentives that will benefit the rep..
