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

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

    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.
