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

    Pros

    Great atmosphere and employees, lots of free food and happy hours. Indepth understanding of all employee benefits. Company is broken into teams, so you work with everyone from the assistants to directly with your VP and Director.

    Cons

    From August through December be prepared to work hard and long hours. Durning busy season I was working roughly 60 hours. Normal busy season hours are 45-60 hours, I was on the high end because of team turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I love the company, I have been working here for 3 years now and I plan to stay for several more on top of that.

    Pros

    Outstanding colleagues, very team-oriented environment, tons of learning opportunities. The leadership is genuinely interested in seeing you grow in the company.

    Cons

    Not too many cons to speak of. However, you must really love the insurance industry. If you are not fully invested, you will not thrive in the community of individuals who really love the field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.
