    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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