    I worked at Old Mutual (Less than a year)

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to Management

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