    I have been working at Lockton Companies part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Growing rapidly, exciting future. Lots of good, interesting work with scope to get spread your wings and get involved in the many initiatives.

    Cons

    Maintaining the entreprenurial culture will be challenging but everyone feels passionately about doing so. It's a differentiator and the reason why many join in the first place.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the investment in Associates, it's incomparable to our peers.

    I have been working at Lockton Companies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some of the colleagues I worked with were nice.

    Cons

    Miss communication between management and HR. Two faced people who are nice to your face but will stab you in the back as soon as they can. HR advisers that do not know what they talking about and also use bullying as there way to deal with matters. Agree to you having emergency leave however will then sack you for it.

    Advice to Management

    Change your HR team in London. They are inconsistent with the information they give and are also very rude and do not help the employee the way they should.

    I have been working at Lockton Companies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Wonderful employees. Great team.

    Cons

    - Huge focus on hierarchy - Poor management. Manager is very controlling a "helicopter" manager. - Expected to work late very often and on weekends. - Inability to work from home despite the work being the type that can be done from home. - No flexibility with hours. You can come in 1-2 hours earlier and you are still expected to work late or till your hours are up. - Lack of cohesiveness with the team. -... HR lacking in helping employees.

    I have been working at Lockton Companies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Support and training to build knowledge -a free drink here and there on a Thursday/Friday

    Cons

    -Below market compensation -micromanagement -cliques within teams -you’re just a number, unless you’re a producer/ older account exec.. -Lockton preaches family values but really operates like any other NYSE PLC.

    Advice to Management

    -Care more about your younger associates and less about paying partners big bonuses and buying the next corporate jet. -Put in place genuine discipline procedures for misconduct. I have seen too many good people exit this company for mistreatment that goes unacknowledged or brushed aside.

    "Nice but ruthless"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Technician in London, England

    I worked at Lockton Companies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The danger money helped .

    Cons

    When your boss is replaced its time to get a proper job. PS How many Associates does it take to screw in a light bulb? Answer five. One to fire everyone near the light bulb when it went out. One to hire an Associate who knows which way to turn a bulb. One to fire the Associate when the bulb has been done up. One to hire a new team who can be fired when the bulb goes wrong again. One to write a leaned... book on how to arrange delay-in-screwing-up an electric light bulb insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so ruthless after all Associates are human too.
