    I have been working at Old Mutual as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Large organisation, provides lots of work. Regularly new projects and opportunities. Some great people. Opportunities to learn and grow up to a point. Some opportunity for travel.

    Cons

    Not cutting edge. Slow to respond to technology progress. A lot of redundancy and bureaucracy. Big projects can be stopped at any point causing some insecurity and a drop in morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on building out your core technology competency - it can not be outsourced with any degree of success.

    I have been working at Old Mutual full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stable employment and it offers balanced life in terms current and future benefits

    Cons

    Not all business units are representative of Old Mutual core values especially at senior management in Foundation Market

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee Barot survey should be conducted at business unit level. Senior management behaviour is a non matter despite it's effects in the business

    I have been working at Old Mutual

    Pros

    Balance personal and work - allowing time off when one needs it.
    They seem to provide benefits which are slightly higher than other competitors in the industry.

    Cons

    compartmentalised nature of the group - there seems to be a lot of r redundancies with no clear group direction. Senior management do not appear to want to feed back information to the staff. Communication is good but could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is important that staff feel part of the business. Businesses where staff have felt part of the business, they have given unquestionably of their time and effects. Be more forth coming and keeping staff in the loop with what goes on in the rest of the group and how this might affect them. In this era of near recession, it is important that staff feel senior management are sympathetic to what might become of their jobs and whether or not they will be losing theirs.
