    Pros

    Great company to work for, self promotion is huge with them. Fun events and lots of giveaways

    Cons

    Does not pay you the fair market value of the position you hold. Long hours are expected from upper management even though you are only required 7.5hr days.

    Advice to Management

    You have a GREAT new system to allow people to work from home. The PROBLEM is the upper management and gray hairs of the company frown upon this when it is used and some managers don't even allow their teams to use the remote day. All I can say is welcome to 2017 and you should get on board with working remote.

    Pros

    There are a lot of perks. Most famous being our beer fridays. Lockton does a good job of paring people with the right group by personality and work style. There is a lot of room to grow within the company ifor you put in the time.

    Cons

    Good people may get overlooked because there is a lot of focus on developing new people through the Associate Account Manager program. Compensation at the lower level isn't stellar.

    Pros

    Lockton really does its best to make sure you have a happy work life balance. During busy season you may find yourself staying a bit later, but for the most part you are out by 5PM. The benefits are great, the company definitely cares about employees. There is ample opportunity to grow with the company. They invest heavily in training associates.

    Cons

    Pay is a bit lower than some competitors, seems like it is quicker to jump companies for promotions and pay raises.

    Advice to Management

    Insurance isn't the sexiest of topics, and people don't necessarily seek these careers, Keep good talent by making them not want to leave. The community and culture are there to do that, but money talks louder.

    Pros

    Lockton provides a gratuitous amount of industry experience with comprehensive training programs for initial and continuing career development. They are service-minded and rather progressive for a "traditionally corporate" financial institution. Career opportunities can flourish here if given the right environment and opportunity to do so over time.

    Cons

    Although the AAM training program aims to develop new hires into versatile Account Managers or Account Executives in time, there seems to be a sincere lack of organization on how to individually develop each person based on their aptitudes. Pay is on the far lower end compared to other organizations of this size - with minimal increase each year in raises.

    Advice to Management

    Don't stifle the ambitious, and work to find outlets to where employees can grow and develop even if it is not in the department you initially started in.
