    Pros

    Awesome company. Great vision, even during rocky times. Excellent benefits. They spend money on their employees. Strong salaries. Friendly environment. Great office location.

    Cons

    Very fast paced, but you are rewarded if you keep up. Projects can be tough, but rewarding when complete. OMAM only hires the best. It's a great company, so finding cons isn't easy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up what you do. Great place to work.

    I have been working at Old Mutual full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    very good support
    quick turn around
    minimal paperwork
    the support from the home office on the mainland was great!

    Cons

    beat the street
    pound the pavement
    find your own leads
    their was no real mentor close to me and the time difference proved to be a hindrance when scheduling

    Advice to Management

    small draw would be a good start for new producers to get offices started, free signage?

    The benefit is good, the management try to give more benefits to keep the employee. Good point on the resume.
