    I have been working at Lockton Companies full-time (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

    Pros

    Growing company, competitive salary/benefits package

    Cons

    Poor work/life balance. No opportunity to work from home or remotely, even just occasionally. This particular office has tremendous turnover and at the time poor management in place.

    I have been working at Lockton Companies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lockton's reputation among its client base is excellent. Education is highly valued and encouraged. I enjoy working with the majority of the people in my unit. For the most part, they all strive to provide great customer service and high quality work. The daily atmosphere is friendly and caring. I have developed strong relationships there.

    Cons

    Workloads are large and can be overwhelming. Expectations are often unreasonably high. If you do a great job and give 110% every day, you are given more work and 150% is expected. Leadership says, "You're awesome", but when you go to them with an issue mostly lip-service is offered. Action is either non-existent or very, very slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management and producers need to be aware and better informed about the happenings in each of the units. Evaluate the current leadership to determine their effectiveness. Make swift changes that would positively impact your employees.

    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

    Work is work.

    Cons

    The company rewards incompetent employees. There is a difference in treatment from one employee to another. True in other places, but in a smaller company, it is more obvious.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop rewarding incompetency and pay attention to those hard working individuals. They are the one you can count on.

    I worked at Lockton Companies full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    -Promotes training and classes in an effort to promote from within and move people up
    -Happy people, hard workers
    -Good atmosphere overall
    -Definitely supprts the live service mottp - clients come first

    Cons

    -Pay is on the low scale
    -Upper management maintains an old "men's club" vibe with few women in the same roles
    -Micro management does come from coworkers who mainly do not know previous arrangements or agreements between the boss and employee
    -Long hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Pay scale should at least be in line with the market
    -More flexibility is needed when it comes to working remote. Lockton has a great remote system is in place, but only some people are able to take full advantage of it, while it is frowned upon for others. People today are expected to do more things with less help and with the cost of daycare, some people has more to handle than others. Lockton needs to be moving forward with technological advances and working remotely should be one of those advances. Ideally, this would decrease overhead as less permanent spaces in the office (plus equipment, supplies, etc.) would be needed.
    As long as lockton hires the right people and has faith in them, there should be no reason that working remote isn't acceptable across the board.
