    A relaxed but productive workplace.

    Infrastructure Engineer (Former Employee) London, England

    ProsA relaxed atmosphere in a truly great location (London HQ), OM could be a company that you work at for a long time.

    ConsPerhaps some of the vision is and direction is being missed. Subsidiary group companies seem able to 'wag the dog' in certain regards.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A company with strong corporate values that is increasing its presence in the UK

    Senior Project Manager (Current Employee) Southampton, England

    ProsManagement and culture thrives to empower employees. Currently there is a drive to change through transformation post a series of M&A activity in the UK - which makes it a really interesting place to work. Overall there is a positive culture to those who want to work with the organisation on the journey to making Old Mutual a big name in UK FS. There has recently been influx of great talent into the business.

    ConsThe organisation is going through a great deal of change post mergers and acquisitions in the UK space, this means that both BAU and central services are stretched. Therefore i could only recommend to those that enjoy change.

    The Borg Outpost

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Southampton, England

    ProsMany nice people – especially the more recent joiners

    ConsClichés and fiefdoms connected by their length of service, rather than value, competency or effectiveness.

    Decision making by committee or collective – no one wants to be accountable for a decision.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop shuffling and promoting the same old bunch of people around

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Work for yourself.

    IT (Current Employee) London, England

    ProsBalance personal and work - allowing time off when one needs it.
    They seem to provide benefits which are slightly higher than other competitors in the industry.

    Conscompartmentalised nature of the group - there seems to be a lot of r redundancies with no clear group direction. Senior management do not appear to want to feed back information to the staff. Communication is good but could be better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt is important that staff feel part of the business. Businesses where staff have felt part of the business, they have given unquestionably of their time and effects. Be more forth coming and keeping staff in the loop with what goes on in the rest of the group and how this might affect them. In this era of near recession, it is important that staff feel senior management are sympathetic to what might become of their jobs and whether or not they will be losing theirs.
