High level of pressure and long working hours required. Management is reasonably understanding and caring. I learned to work in a multidisciplinary team and still manage to meet individual targets. The hardest part of the Job is the financial risk associated with high pressure to push volumes. On a typical day I would approve R5 million and more in payments. The most interesting part of the job is giving feedback to management on training needs and process inefficiencies.

it was a very fun workplace as you meet new people and different characters but we were very productive as we knew what it is that is expected of us. The colleagues are very helpful when you need assistance with anything.

This learnership was a good starting point for an opportunity to learn as well as to gain work experience in the corporate and public sector - at the same time. It was difficult to attend classes at first but as time progresses, one learns to adapt. In my opinion, it's much easier when you have help from different resources such as HR, mentors, managers, colleagues, etc. People on the floor is very helpful and assists in any way that they can. This job has taught me it's Ok to get out of my comfort zone. Dont be afraid to seek assistance when you get stuck. I am way more interactive and hardworking. The learnership turns out to be time consuming as you have to work, attend workshops and attend college as well where you have to complete up to 4 portfolio's within a month whilst juggling work tasks.
You practically work for yourself and the more clients you bring in the more you get paid. It is very important to keep your clients happy by doing follow ups and giving good service to them. By doing so you will be building trust and in turn have no lapses.
The culture is different, the building is beautiful , the people are friendly and the work is tons. There is so much to learn and discover at MMI. I also love the fact that the company value do not differ from mine. There is so much to learn from management, especially leadership skills.

As an ever changing and forward thinking working environment, they certainly have one eye on the future and the other focused on taking their staff compliment to the next level to match the growth of the company.
I have always embraced change and at MMI I have learnt to live and speak of it with a positive mindset!
Great Health care, good growth opportunity
Not everyone likes change, so some people don't always buy into its rationale which impacts the work environment.
As I mentioned that a worked at Metropolitan life for seven years before I relocated to MMI Holdings in July 2014, but both companies are not differ to me, I treat them as my home because I spend more time at work than at home, and I make sure that I make me happy all the time by sharing my views with colleagues. Sometime I feel like I'm not treated well in some cases but what I like is that our management give us time to raise our voice and they listen to us and respond fairly. I enjoy to work at MMI Holding but because I like new challenges, I think I am ready to leave and learn more about the other companies.
