    Pros

    Flexible hours if your position allows you to take advantage of them. Seems understanding of family demands and work/life balance.

    Cons

    Weak management by those counting down to retirement. Lack of direction. Right hand doesn't always know what the left is doing. Projects lack action plans, expectations or clarity. HR does not maintain confidentiality. Lack of career advancement opportunities. Often playing one person against another for no purpose. Low pay in comparison to other like companies.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the flexible hours, but a bit more structure to positions and career paths would be beneficial, esp. for retaining younger talent. Skip the flip-flops casual and increase salary to be competitive with peers.

    Pros

    Admiral has some of the best work/life balance in the industry. The company has changed dramatically in the last 5 years and I think they are moving in the right track. This is a company geared for entrepreneurial people that can self manage their book and create their own projects.

    Cons

    Lack of a clear career path is a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more money into the technology infrastructure to allow employees true mobility and the ability to work from a remote location.

    Pros

    Co-workers (not management) are what keeps people sane!

    Cons

    This company could care less about its employees. The company gives 0-1% raises to the worker bees, while uneducated, overpaid senior management employees are paid hefty salaries, bonuses and given huge salary increases. Not only did the company reduce their pay incentives such as bonuses and salary increases, they even had the nerve to TAKE vacation, personal and sick days AWAY FROM from the employees, while posting record profits. There is no positive reinforcement , only negative. Admiral is a sinking ship and employees are desperately trying to jump ship before it sinks. This place is a joke! Stay away if you're looking for a rewarding career with a company that values its employees.!

    Advice to Management

    Hire a real HR VP who has a degree who employees can trust and vent to without the threat of having every word repeated, or without the fear of retaliation; pay your employees competitive salaries, raises and bonuses instead of over-compensating senior management; give positive feedback instead of over emphasizing the negative; stop wasting money on needless trinkets and put the money in employees paychecks!
