    Best place to work ever.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Kansas City, MO

    ProsIt 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.

    ConsIT doesn't get yearly bonuses

    Advice to Senior ManagementRestart the bonus program for Shared Services

    From an AA experience

    ProsAwesome company, probably the reason I've stuck with it. Love the people I work with everyday and the over all culture of Lockton. A lot of fun work activities, happy hours, etc

    ConsThe pay isn't the best in the industry, however people still tend to stay because of the company itself.

    Great Company to work for

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) Kansas City, MO

    ProsWithin the IT group you have a 40 hour work week with the occassional weekend when code releases require it. Periodic beer Fridays. Lots of community activity.

    Good documentation and procedures in place for IT projects. They are always working on improving the process. It feels like a good stable team environment. In addition, they strive on maintaining the systems at or ahead of industry standards so the networking, hardware, and software are for the most part top of the line.

    ConsWithin the IT group, many people have been with the company for years so professional growth is limited after a time. Certain teams do not work well together and some of the communication needs work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPush for more efficiency across the company. There is way to much manual work (both in terms of paper and processes) that could be streamlined or eliminated.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
