Sanlam Reviews

 

I am always willing to learn new things , love work that is challenging .

i work from 8 to 4 on daily basis face to face interaction with clients. i have a very good relationship with co-workers help each other lean new things everyday. I never knew other languages and have leant through talking to client of different cultures and race. i enjoy working with clients they make you to be strong cause not all client come to the office happy you have to listen to them even if when they are shouting at you or swearing the customer is always right and you have to make sure that every client walks out happy receive good service . most challenging aspect is you have to make decisions on your own that will not impact on the business take ownership and put yourself into customers shoes.

Pros: growth through difference divisions
Cons: working overtime

Mature, reliable and consistent in approach.

As a Financial Advisor, you have to find new Clients/Orphan clients to serve and assist with their financial goals. The main objective is to establish the financial needs and solution. As most clients do not understand it themselves, it could take up a lot of one's time to do the administration and paperwork with no financial gain. This frustrates all of the advisors. It is not easy to build trust and obtain the correct information (it's time-consuming and competitive). In the meantime you have to be able to support yourself financially. The first 3-years in the industry is hectic, therefore it is stressful and you have to have a positive attitude among one another and towards the industry. It is expected of you to attend regular training sessions, meetings, etc. You are always learning. Like all of us, we get a feeling of accomplishment, once a policy has been issued and a client has provided for his/her unforeseen circumstances. The position is not office-based nor office hours.

Pros: To build up a practice
Cons: Commission based only, timeously and costly

Exellent learning curve

My typical day at work would be prospecting of clients meaning I would be calling to make appointments then do so administration then I would go out to make money by meeting clients. I had a very good relationship with my manager as he he was the one who had to review my cases submitted and we would normally have one on one meetings every week to discuss business and my progress. I think I enjoy the drive and whole target related situation as it pushes me to go out and do better but in general my job was stressfull because without any clients I don't get paid.

Pros: Meet a lot of different people and you are able to adapt to different people.
Cons: Commission based salary

Great Growth Potential

I enjoy that interaction with different clients. I am diverse person, who is a good team player and can also work independently. I have leadership qualities that have been enhanced by holding of leadership positions whilst in my university years. And through my knowledge of languages, I’m able to communicate with all different individuals within the organisation. I believe in setting long term goals and working to achieve them through setting short term objectives which lead to me accomplishing these goals.

Pros: Vast exposure
Cons: Commission based
