    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 of work is now being vetted. Pushed upon me as as "Work-blending' as pressure tactics are in place to force employees to spend time outside of work with their managers. I have a family, and I’m not interested in ‘hanging out’ with supervisor outside of work with a friendly threat of being fired if I do not. There are also a lot of instances whereby management are in a position of power and are exerting their influence to force relationships with employees. If someone from the labor board or privacy commissioner’s office read this, please investigate.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop pressuring employees to spend time with you outside of work - many of us do not want to.

    Fresh fruit daily & shares

    The actual job is terrible with little support from management and a lot of feedback to make the employee feel like crap!

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

    Pros

    incredible opportunities. we're all equal, employer of choice, financially sound with a healthy reserve plan. free fruit, in house yoga, fun is a priority while balanced of course with getting results

    Cons

    professional project mgmt isn't always in the works, we fly by the seat of our pants. This has pro's (we're nimble, adaptable) but some con's (repeat errors).

    Advice to Management

    put a lot of resources into the US business. all employees are shareholders and our single biggest growth potential is the massive US market. We're all counting on it from a personal finance perspective.
