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

    Pros

    This is a small company and is run like a small company but it is owned by WR Berkley so there is that large company protection. They offer flexible hours, work from home option and hold employee engagement events throughout the year.

    Cons

    There is just no growth opportunity here pay is not good. If you are looking for a career filler this is a great place to stop but and learn but you will need to plan an exit strategy after a few years. Company is under new leadership and is finding its way which seems to be a very long unguided process.

    Advice to Management

    You need determine your direction for the company.

    Great benefits Good pay Used to feel like fly by the seat of your pant and has moved to more organized and focused on growing the company and improving Slackers who were happy to let others do most the work are no longer tolerated.

    Fast pace sometimes creates stress

    I worked at Admiral Insurance full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Some nice people. Otherwise, hard to think of any.

    Cons

    Casual dress is beyond appropriate but that’s nothing compared to poor pay, low esteem, employees not valued or acknowledged, no direction or even responses to request for guidance, have to be accepted in very small clique, little to no upward mobility. Management has been less than effective for many years now.

    Advice to Management

    Provide career pathing and mentoring. Open the old boy network to others. Bring in more positive HR team to help promote better environment, train managers, assess things objectively and fairly. Reward job well done tangibly. Award shares to promote feeling of ownership in employees. Appreciate and recognize staff. Allow more telecommuting opportunities to retain good talent. Encourage more retirements of old guard.... Align performance with espoused values. Sorry much more needed ....

    vacation weeks and accrued time

    Cons

    managers lack maturity, one reviewed phone call missing something could cost you your month's incentive pay

    Advice to Management

    Way too much immaturity in management, senior reps...hard to earn incentives when you meet and beat expected outcomes due to every call picked apart for failure
