    I worked at Old Mutual full-time

    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.

    Pros

    Brilliant company to work for. You feel as though you can make a difference and feel valued within your team. I felt encouraged to pursue my own goals/projects as long as it did not interfere with my work.

    Maybe some of the IT equipment could be upgraded, I was stuck with some old monitors with low resolution, which ended up straining my eyes after long periods.

    Absolutely nothing to improve upon, keep promoting the open culture and ensure it remains intact during growth.
