      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...

      I worked at Admiral Group full-time for more 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...

      I have been working at Admiral Group full-time for more than 2 years

      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.

      I have been working at Admiral Group

      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 4 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...

      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 6 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!

      I have been working at Admiral Group full-time

      Pros

      The pay is OK, but the stock 'options' you are offered are worthless unless you stay 2-3 years from the time you receive them and are clawed back when you leave; vapor asset.

      Cons

      There is currently a push to have employees sign over their rights to Facebook, Twitter and any other social media site they're currently using. Management is violating basic privacy rights through the collection, use and storage of information that is personal in nature. Therefore, I implore my peers who read this to please open a case with the privacy commissioner based on the following: Work and my life outside...
