Culture has changed
Senior Product Specialist - Greenlight (Risk) (Former Employee) –  Johannesburg11 August 2019
Unfortunately the company has gone through some serious culture shifts in the last couple of years, it also received bad publicity lately with a CEO being fired. This was a great company to work for and won the Employer of the Year award in 2016 and 2017, unfortunately the culture shift under new management has brought about huge stress levels and job uncertainty.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
No promotional opportunities.

None. A slave driver
Was just an idiot (Former Employee) –  Johannesburg, Gauteng10 July 2019
None that is worthy to give. The management are a bunch of conspiratorial capitalist extortionists that are there to see for themselves only. There is no system in place to safeguard the employees interests as the management is so WHITE that they can still practice APARTHEID values and get away with it.
Pros
None.
Cons
Slave driven. And if the bosses need to cover themselves. They just fire u

Creditors Clerk; Claims Negotiator (Former Employee) –  Johannesburg, Gauteng25 February 2019
Typical day at work was your normal inbound call centre Day.
Dealing with unhappy and happy clients, assisting where ever we could.
Pushing beyond boundaries to make sure, no matter how that call started, that the customer was happy before hat call was ended.

Fun times with staff members

It is such a lovely environment; only management could of done better with motivating the employees.

a lot of changes, feel insecure with all the changes
Legal Recoveries Consultant (Current Employee) –  Johannesburg, Gauteng28 October 2018
To much changes and movements in department, management
don't have any people skills to treat staff with respect and is very inpatient. Unreachable and unfair target that is expected of staff to reach each and every month. There is no time to have fun as it is just work, work, work. Micro management, extremely target driven and nothing is an excuse if you don't reach that target each and every month. Management is targeting and treating certain staff with disrespect and no patient or with correct people skills. Team Leaders humiliate you in front of everyone.
Hardest part of the job is to reach the unfair targets without any assistance from some Team leaders. There is no positive motivation and support from team leaders.
Pros
nothing
Cons
long hours, work 11 hours most days without any overtime payment

Fair Workplace
Graduate Intern (Current Employee) –  Johanessburg22 January 2018
Old Mutual Insure is a free and a fair workplace. The management is also fair and very considerate. have learnt a lot including managing my time, multi tasking and working in a professional environment in general. There is diversity and it enables individuals to explore themselves more. The hardest part of the job would be probably dealing with angry clients and the most enjoyable part is doing the everyday work.
