    Open Management who is truly invested in their team. They embrace the entrepreneurial spirit, but also don't sign us up for crazy things. Truly can make your own happiness here.

    We are getting larger, so knowing each person as closely as one would like is starting to change.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Fun environment and great people to work with. Lockton challenges you to continually improve and takes great care of its associates.

    Cons

    Sometimes a very stressful workload and occassionally unclear expectations. Nothing that doesn't pass in time.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to express interest in your associates. For the newer associates, especially in the insurance field, make yourself available to answer all kinds of questions.

    I worked at Lockton Companies as an intern

    Pros

    Very fair pay for an intern, lots of opportunities to get to talk and meet with company executives, fun intern activities, offered housing assistants for out of towners, not the most exciting day to day work but not the worst.

    Cons

    Actual entry level salary pay is poor compared to other companies in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Make entry level jobs more appealing

    Pros

    - Many opportunities to advance
    - Great mix of people - ages, backgrounds, personalities
    - Quality work-life balance with 12-week paid parental leave
    - Strong commitment to community

    Cons

    With such a large company, some Associates may feel lost or that they aren't important to the overall company vision. It's critical to get involved with committees, speak up at meetings and find a group of like-minded Associates with whom you can have lunch, go for coffee or just chat when needed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your Associates. We appreciate it!

    Pros

    The Company Culture, the fast paced work environment, the co-workers, work-life balance

    Cons

    As an Intern you have to be lucky to get a good supervisor to work with. The experience can vary drastically depending on who your manager and how much time they can dedicate to training you.

    The pay is also not unto the industry standards.

    I worked at Lockton Companies as an intern

    Pros

    Great internship experience. Learned a lot about the insurance industry and was given a lot of perks such as Royals tickets, concert tickets, and etc.

    Cons

    There was a lot of down time when projects would be finished and they simply had me do filler work or online learning about insurance.
