I have been working at Old Mutual

Pros

Career development and easy access to senior management

Cons

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

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest 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.

    I have been working at Old Mutual full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The CEO is very keen to embed culture throughout the business, and remains actively engaged with employees. The company is very supportive of organic growth and allows employees to continue their development within the firm.

    Cons

    Management fails to communicate with teams, and as such, fails to understand true underlying issues of their teams. Most areas of the business are kept in a silo, which is counterintuitive as we depend on one another.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remain actively engaged with your teams. Book bi-weekly meetings to discuss difficulties and challenges, and also sit with your team in the office. I'm unsure why heads of teams are given a prestigious seat miles away from their teams. Many employees are computer illiterate also, which is a slight worry, especially within a business sector responsible for conducting several trades a day and managing large quantities of data.

    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.
