    Pros

    It’s amazing the over times hours are fantastic, everyone is super friendly, they really support and work with you, teachers during induction we’re awesome! And they do so much for the staff, handing out treats and having team outing parties, bringing in lunch for us every month, fresh fruit free for staff daily. Free healthy snacks on Fridays! Weekend breakfast! Free taxi chits for early weekend shifts. Discounted... bus passes, benefits start from day 1. Stable full time hours and 6 weeks of holiday pay!

    I worked at Admiral Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Cult like indoctrination into working for the company so not a pro but many think it is

    Cons

    Abuse abuse and more abuse

    Advice to Management

    Your team manager pulled me into an office and said I was trying to tarnish his reputation I have absolutely no idea what that means but that is absolutely awful to tell someone who is working there for only three months. They pull you into rooms and yell at you about accidentally transferring people to customer service and try to fill their own agendas. I wouldn’t wish the job on my enemy Halifax renewals is... ruthless for such an entry level job and the team manager I had was abusive and prided himself on being an ex criminal and would regularity boast about it

    I have been working at Admiral Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Daytime shifts; advancement and personal development opportunities; lots of training; free fruit every day; yoga and massage on site; lots of free food; awesome parties; rewards for hard form; regular recognition and celebration of successes; lots of coaching, positive & constructive feedback; become an Admiral shareholder; rewards for length of service; incentives for high performance.

    Cons

    Early morning shifts (6 am) can be rough if you're not a morning person; steep learning curve to overcome at the start; constant change that you need to be resilient for; if you're not ready to work for the incentive the base wage is not huge.

    Pros

    Lots of potential to earn money with bonuses. Great benefits package. Great people to work with. Lots of fun and growth. Also free shares after 3 years of employment!

    Cons

    None except the pay doesn't seem to compare with other insurance companies locally. Nothing really bad to say about this company.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. Keep up the good job!

    I have been working at Admiral Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Employee Share Scheme/Dividends -Fresh Fruit Daily -Lots of vacation time + accrued time

    Cons

    -Incredibly disparate incentive structure purportedly based on how difficult a given employee's skillset is. The difference in incentive caps are *not* proportional. -Significant cutbacks to medical/extended health benefits as of August 1, 2016 with only a few weeks' notice but higher premiums -Major lack of flexibility with regards to scheduling and allowances for vacation/accrued time -A significant amount of... middle-managment apathy getting blamed on staff by upper management -Advancement is *very* nepotistic. Emphasis on sycophants over skilled candidates. -Salaries are not competitive, changes to payscale do not reflect inflation -6am Weekend shifts - for some of us this means getting up as early as 4:00am for a job which is normally 8:30-5.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up. You're pushing your best and brightest out the door. Senior Management/Operations need to stop turning a blind eye to the garbage performance of middle management.

    I have been working at Admiral Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good people to work with, job is OK when you get to a point where people leave you alone to do you job. Depends what manager you get really.

    Cons

    too much meddling by managers. They need to let people work. small people who blame everyone else for their own short comings. Pressure tactics suck. Micromanagement nightmare.

    Advice to Management

    LEAVE PEOPLE ALONE TO WORK!
