    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Old Mutual as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The whole business is focused on satisfaction, for employees as well as clients. This is evidenced on a daily basis from events organised by the Motivation team to the random gifts provided by the company. The managers are encouraged to relate to their employees and ensure all needs are met. Training is also highly encouraged. A great company to work for! The culture and attitude between colleagues is fantastic, everyone works together to make sure problems are solved.

    Cons

    Many of the roles are quite specific as it is such a large company. There are quite a lot of employees so you can end up feeling a bit lost.

    Advice to Management

    Carry on caring!

    Pros

    The flexibility and the reason that you work for your salary, if you don't put in 100% you will most probably go home with almost or no salary for that specific month

    Cons

    The commission split between yourself and the company at times is not well balanced out.

    Advice to Management

    Guide and look after your employees and you will most definitely get the best results from them
