    I interned at Lockton for two summers and left with valuable experience and strong ties to the company.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLockton does a lot to make new employees feel welcome. Coworkers go out to happy hours almost every day. Lockton is a fun, fast paced work environment that allows you to set your own career path and goals.

    ConsThe pay isn't great, but other than that nothing really to complain about.

    Best place to work ever.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Kansas City, MO (US)

    ProsIt is a family owned company and they treat all of the associates here like family. Even during the hard financial times a few years back when there was a lot of layoff's in Kansas City, Lockton did not lay anyone off. They prefer to retain the associates. There are not many companies in KC much less the US that look at the associates that way.

    ConsIT doesn't get yearly bonuses

    Advice to Senior ManagementRestart the bonus program for Shared Services

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not the best place to work

    Account Manager (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA (US)

    ProsGrowing company, competitive salary/benefits package

    ConsPoor work/life balance. No opportunity to work from home or remotely, even just occasionally. This particular office has tremendous turnover and at the time poor management in place.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It could be a great place to work!

    Account Manager (Current Employee) Denver, CO (US)

    ProsLockton's reputation among its client base is excellent. Education is highly valued and encouraged. I enjoy working with the majority of the people in my unit. For the most part, they all strive to provide great customer service and high quality work. The daily atmosphere is friendly and caring. I have developed strong relationships there.

    ConsWorkloads are large and can be overwhelming. Expectations are often unreasonably high. If you do a great job and give 110% every day, you are given more work and 150% is expected. Leadership says, "You're awesome", but when you go to them with an issue mostly lip-service is offered. Action is either non-existent or very, very slow.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management and producers need to be aware and better informed about the happenings in each of the units. Evaluate the current leadership to determine their effectiveness. Make swift changes that would positively impact your employees.

    Good People, Obvious steps to moving up the ladder, still has a men's club vibe in management

    Technical Service Assistant (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA (US)

    Pros-Promotes training and classes in an effort to promote from within and move people up
    -Happy people, hard workers
    -Good atmosphere overall
    -Definitely supprts the live service mottp - clients come first

    Cons-Pay is on the low scale
    -Upper management maintains an old "men's club" vibe with few women in the same roles
    -Micro management does come from coworkers who mainly do not know previous arrangements or agreements between the boss and employee
    -Long hours

    Advice to Senior Management-Pay scale should at least be in line with the market
    -More flexibility is needed when it comes to working remote. Lockton has a great remote system is in place, but only some people are able to take full advantage of it, while it is frowned upon for others. People today are expected to do more things with less help and with the cost of daycare, some people has more to handle than others. Lockton needs to be moving forward with technological advances and working remotely should be one of those advances. Ideally, this would decrease overhead as less permanent spaces in the office (plus equipment, supplies, etc.) would be needed.
    As long as lockton hires the right people and has faith in them, there should be no reason that working remote isn't acceptable across the board.

    Great Company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Kansas City, MO (US)

    ProsGrowing company with a lot of career advancement opportunities. Culture features a very flat reporting structure that allows associates to work with all different levels of individuals throughout the company and provide meaningful information to support the growth of the company.

    ConsAs the company grows and the management team changes, it is difficult for long time employees to demonstrate value to new managers while continuing to perform the function and responsibilities expected.

    Use to be nice place to work.

    Account Manager (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA (US)

    ProsWork is work.

    ConsThe company rewards incompetent employees. There is a difference in treatment from one employee to another. True in other places, but in a smaller company, it is more obvious.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop rewarding incompetency and pay attention to those hard working individuals. They are the one you can count on.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
