    Pros

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

    Current Employee - Senior Project Manager in Southampton, England (UK)

    I have been working at Old Mutual full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Management 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.

    Cons

    The 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.
