    I have been working at Lockton Companies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fantastic company. Recently found myself feeling stagnated in my current role, and received an incredible amount of support and encouragement to start searching out a role that would be a better fit. This company believes in working hard and playing even harder. If you put in the effort you will be rewarded.

    Cons

    Definitely can feel like a heavy workload from time to time. You can sometimes feel like you don't have a lot of direction, but Lockton believes in testing you and making you earn your keep.

    Great people, great company, competitive, great managers, professional atmosphere.

    I interned at Lockton for two summers and left with valuable experience and strong ties to the company.

    Lockton does a lot to make new employees feel welcome. Coworkers go out to happy hours almost every day. Lockton is a fun, fast paced work environment that allows you to set your own career path and goals.

    Cons

    The pay isn't great, but other than that nothing really to complain about.

    Current Employee - Senior Vice President in Kansas City, MO

    I have been working at Lockton Companies full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    It is a place of constant learning and evolution with a lot of great people who are concerned with taking care of the client. Being privately held means we do not have artificial pressures which take us away from doing what is right for the long term.

    Cons

    The firm has been slow to embracing technology to be more nimble and cutting edge to drive efficiency. The firm very recently started implementing new initiatives and the payoff should start to show in the next 12 - 18 months. I think we can do more after those initiatives are implemented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be awesome if Lockton was an ESOP which would tie our Associates closer to the results of the hard work.

    I have been working at Lockton Companies full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    It is a family owned company and they treat all of the associates here like family. Even during the hard financial times a few years back when there was a lot of layoff's in Kansas City, Lockton did not lay anyone off. They prefer to retain the associates. There are not many companies in KC much less the US that look at the associates that way.

    Cons

    IT doesn't get yearly bonuses

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restart the bonus program for Shared Services
