    I worked at Lockton Companies (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you're a guy and manage the politics right you can probably do well here.

    Cons

    This company will promote and retain individuals in executive management who are known to have sexually harrassed employees. Management and HR will make examples all day long of lower-level associates who engage in harassment but when it comes to the upper ranks the behavior is a badly kept, dirty little secret. Management will say 'look around at all the women in leadership positions' as evidence of the company's zero-tolerance policy but the truth is that those women got there and stay there by looking the other way and keeping their mouths shut.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep this up and one day you'll get the lawsuit that you can't make just go away quietly.

    Pros

    7.5 hour week
    Some fun people
    Can learn if you find the right person that will share

    Cons

    Political and cliquish- you need to be in with the in crowd or you need to leave
    Backward technology and IT personnel worst attitude ever- IT doesn't support IPAD, I phone and blames any issues on our personal equipment instead of finding a solution
    Very low pay per the job offers I am getting

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have meetings with people under 35 and you don't follow through at all with findings or results. Nothing changes! What is the use of having a meeting? Do you think it will help with employee retention to throw us a party after work but disregard suggestions to improve productivity and the environment? You also have some real dinosaurs in management. They either should keep up with technology or get out

    I worked at Lockton Companies full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    nice surroundings; some very nice people

    Cons

    Sweat Shop - had to get out due to no work/life balance; a lot of politics, most of it bad; very cliquish- like your worst high school nightmare. Extreme favortism- everyone has a different deal (like vacations, flex hours, etc) Big disparity in salaries for same job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start running it like a large company and stop pitting people against each other. You also need to be more transparent and stop hiding information. Make people feel part of the company instead of looking down at them.

    Pros

    There are not to many pros with this company. You will meet a few good people but they are far and few inbetween.

    Cons

    There main focus is on the diva producers. When the producers do not produce, they reduce staff by cutting the service managers who retain clients. They will lure you away from top notched competitors with promises of greener pastures but will never deliver. Be careful of the gossipers as there are many here and they will stab you in the back the first chance they get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace the whole management team.

    Lockton - the best place to work? I don't think so...at least in the LA office

    I worked at Lockton Companies

    Pros

    Large company with a lot of people that provides a "REST AND RELAXATION" period for employees one day a month.

    Cons

    Horrible management in the LA office. Senior management places people with no people and management skills in positions of leadership. Proclaims a motto of "our most important asset is our people" - what a farce... Most unit managers in the LA office are so disengaged from their underlings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start seriously taking the advise and comments of the support staff's review of their respective managers, and determine if that person should be allowed to be a manager.

    I have been working at Lockton Companies as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Sadly I cannot think of a pro to working as a contractor with this company.

    Cons

    Unsympathetic working environment for contractors. No integration or even introductions to other employees makes for a lone man on the island effect. Company sponsored outings where contractors were not invited or even acknowledged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Contractors are employees too.
