    I worked at Lockton Companies full-time

    Pros

    Only 37.5 hour work week

    Cons

    The money is laughable unless you are in an Executive position. Lockton makes promises regarding advancement that they don't keep. Unless you start in the AAM program your training is minimal.

    Advice to Management

    Management plays favorites and they only invest their time in those people. There is no consistency regarding policy's and procedures amongst the different units.

    I have been working at Lockton Companies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Manager and team are incredibly knowledgeable. Culture and volunteer opportunities are second to none. 401k is the best out there.

    Cons

    Income and bonus inequality between department and unfulfilled promises make for unmet expectations and high turnover. They will lure you in with false promises and then guilt/shame you into staying until you leave in tears.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring with promises of job duties/responsibilities you don't plan to actually give. Many of us were told the position would be going remote and haven't. That there was upward mobility- there isn't. That bonuses would make up for low pay-they don't. Unless you work in Construction- you won't get recognition or pay and we see qualified workers leave for better paying opportunities with growth potential everyday. Stop complaining about training people for them to leave. Start incentivizing them to stay

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

    Pros

    Decent pay, decent management, decent benefits. In general, it's just decent. Don't expect to be WOW'd, but don't expect it to suck either.

    Cons

    Lockton doesn't provide tuition assistance. Lots of management only worried about profits and not their employees' well-being (that's business, I get it, but still...)

    Lag the market in terms of compensation

    Advice to Management

    Close the salary gap between Mid-entry level jobs and executives or senior account execs
