    I have been working at Lockton Companies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, great people, and awesome perks going to ball games and out with carriers. Little travel. Work hard play hard attitude

    Cons

    Getting promoted feels like it is based off time and not the work that you put in. Training could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay and give people promotion based on work not time.

    Pros

    Truly great people throughout the organization all willing to help. The culture of this company is what I believe truly sets it apart from its competitors.

    Cons

    Like most jobs, the demands can sometimes be challenging and stressful so important for one to have good time management.

    Pros

    Culture at Lockton really is different. They have treated me better in the past 10 years than I ever could have imagined.

    Cons

    Cons are simply that they grow fast and you are expected to perform!

    Pros

    Competitive pay once you get through the entry level positions. Climbing the ladder is a tough trek but promotions are typically every 18-24 months

    Cons

    Work life balance isn't very favorable once you climb the positional ladder. A lot of email monitoring outside of the normal work hours.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work

    I have been working at Lockton Companies full-time

    Pros

    Privately held company whose environment promotes autonomy and innovation. At an entry level position, my responsibilities far exceed those of my peers and I am continuously challenged everyday.

    Cons

    Definitely a good sign that I am struggling to think of any! I would say a con may be the segregation between the P&C and benefits team - at least in my office. Another may be that if you do not like to have a full plate at all times - stay away! The team member count can sometimes feel low but as a consequence there is a lot of support between benefits peers - at all levels.

    Advice to Management

    Do not let the concept of standardization get in the way of our company culture. There are processes that can be made more efficient by aligning various offices - such as standard RFPs - but it can also have an inefficient impact on potential of growth that is well deserved...be it growth in title, knowledge, or client work.

    Pros

    Benefits are great. Perks are always a plus. They like to party, but mainly they do well at showing appreciation for employees.

    Cons

    Not everyone gets to enjoy the perks because the client is always first. Somebody has to do the work while everyone else can play.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget those who supported your success. It takes a team to be successful in this business. Also, this is an industry based on relationships. The employees that create those relationships are an integral part of a positive outcome.

    Pros

    Creative, forward thinking organization that makes me proud to be an employee. Very committed to client needs. Company offers multiple culture building activities like Fair Day, happy hours, Fun Committee, Make a Difference awards, community support initiatives, etc.

    Cons

    Our commitment to clients is a strength but also becomes a challenge when trying to create balance with personal life. Fortunately, the firm offers remote access flexibility when possible.

    Advice to Management

    Just remember to occasionally acknowledge that our associates are all doing a good job and being measured against a higher bar.
