    Pros

    Great opportunity. Lockton always looks to promote from within. The workload you're given is straining, but it allows for great opportunities. The culture here is un-matched. Work hard / play hard.

    Cons

    Workload is heavy, can be overwhelmed during busy seasons. The travel can be tough as well.

    Pros

    Environment and entrepreneurial atmosphere.
    Lockton does a good job of inclusivity with all levels of employees . Easy access to upper management

    Cons

    Timeline promotions. They promote employees who do not necessarily deserve a promotion but because they have been there long enough.

    Advice to Management

    Let your top tier talent advance when ready, don’t base promotions off of timing.

    Pros

    Lockton is really focused on being a great place to work. Clients are the top priority, but they realize it is the team doing that work that makes the client relationships successful. Great perks including beer fridays, great benefit programs, including the ability to work from home one day a week, wonderful company events, and a focus on community involvement and volunteering make this all around a great place to work.

    Cons

    The SE series has grown dramatically over the past 3-5 years, and some of the growth has made it hard to keep up. It is a good problem to have, but sometimes we have not hired as fast as we should have. It seems this is better under control now.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening and responding to our feedback. The increased communications, more frequent town hall and action on our feedback has been really positive.

    Pros

    Great culture and company to work for. Good salary and if you get into the right office great coworkers.

    Cons

    Upper management seems out of touch with what is happening with lower level associates and change is hard to come by. Employee training program is subpar.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to entry level associates.

    Pros

    Structured program where each intern is placed in a unit, but also all interns come together for activities, projects and training. Interns separated into groups and given a final presentation. Great experience and good environment for an internship program.

    Experience differed between interns based on units, some had better experiences and work than others.
