Pros

This can be a really fun place to work. They offer lots of perks to your employment. Great 401, Casual Dress, real people, that mostly like to have fun and work hard. There is a lot of freedom here if you act like an adult and do your job.

Cons

The freedom expressed in the Pros is also given to the team leads, which means, you might watch one department get taken care of nicely, with a boss that pushes for good employees to be recognized, hands out opportunity as often as possible and so on, while you are in a group whose team lead is happy with how things are and doesn't place much interest in your goals, except durring your annual review.

Advice to Management

Flexability here is amazing. I am an outside of the box kind of person, and this place fits me, but there needs to be balance. Please get in touch with what is really going on and who is really doing the work. Find out for yourself, don't just ask the same two people! It would be a hard process to get to the bottom of it, but you would be shocked to find out who is working and who is getting by on the backs of their team.

  1. A fun office culture with many options for growth, but few advancement opportunities.

    Pros

    Lockton has the community's respect. The flip side is that when you are interviewing for your next job, no one understands why you left, and you cannot really say why you did not like your job.

    Lockton is extremely sensitive to their clients' needs, and they provide top-level service. It's great to be able to do the best for your client. They offer competitive salaries, and further compensate their employees with bonuses, and more.

    Cons

    There were some glaring cons that overshadowed the significant pros. Overall, their management team lacks training and skills. They know their industry very well, but they do not know how to manage or motivate their employees, except by fear or money. There is not a sense of being a team member because one is more concerned with staying out of the politics and keeping their job.

    Advice to Management

    The nepotism has to go--at all levels.
