    A company with strong corporate values that is increasing its presence in the UK

    Senior Project Manager (Current Employee)
    Southampton, England (UK)

    ProsManagement and culture thrives to empower employees. Currently there is a drive to change through transformation post a series of M&A activity in the UK - which makes it a really interesting place to work. Overall there is a positive culture to those who want to work with the organisation on the journey to making Old Mutual a big name in UK FS. There has recently been influx of great talent into the business.

    ConsThe organisation is going through a great deal of change post mergers and acquisitions in the UK space, this means that both BAU and central services are stretched. Therefore i could only recommend to those that enjoy change.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Hard work is its own reward

    Actuarial Assistant (Current Employee)
    Baltimore, MD

    ProsGreater than average diversity. Uniqueness is respected. Flexible working hours and rules. A liberal atmosphere. Comraderie among staff. There is plenty of work to do.

    ConsLayoffs. Twelve hour work days. Uncertainty about the future of the company. Fires to put out everywhere. High attrition rate. This year, bonuses were not given, and raises were given only to a select few.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive bonuses and raises next year. We have been working hard, and we deserve to be compensated. Invest more in developing junior staff. Don't just toss them into the lake and expect them to swim.

    Life at OM

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsCareer development and easy access to senior management

    ConsVery inefficient management. The pay is not competitive and pay raises are scarce. Just recently downsized

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest more money in finding the right talent to run a tight ship-qualified professionals who will work for the right money; eliminate wasteful spending on overpriced consultants that do a poor job, and greedy MGA's that do not produce enough business.
