    I worked at Lockton Companies

    Pros

    Nice staff. Focus on customer service. Focus on client support. Amazing Client Solutions team.

    Cons

    Lack of clear, consistent direction from the top. Poor upper management communication. Nepotism. Conflicts in upper management. Lack of training and growth opportunities lead to stale skill sets and talent pool. Outdated technology. Excessively low pay for tenured associates. Did I mention rampant nepotism?
