Great company to work for

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

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

Pros- provide training
- promote from within
- regular reviews/pay increases
- great company culture

Working for this company has been a great experience. Even with no prior experience in commercial insurance, Lockton not only trains their employees but they also cover the cost of classes related to insurance designations through the Institutes, as well as providing their own continuing education classes.

Office culture is great, no micromanaging (at least from what I have experienced). Beer Fridays every week where employees are encouraged to relax and socialize. Competitive benefits and no problems getting time off. The Denver office has around 300 employees and turnover rate is fairly low. If anything, they are growing rapidly.

ConsLearning the internal systems can be challenging, but associates are more than willing to help.

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

Work hard, play hard party boys

Account Administrator (Former Employee)
Los Angeles, CA (US)

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

ProsLockton offers great training, and brings employee professionalism and service skills up a notch or 2 or 3. While the departmental demeanor/personality may vary, there is definitely a "work hard, play hard" ethic. It offers great opportunities to some. A great place to start straight out of college.

ConsWhile opportunities are offered to some, there is a somewhat conspicuous and inappropriate nature to whom they are afforded. They seem to prefer those who have the time to "play hard" - i.e. the young, unmarried, without family commitments. And people able to accept entry-level pay. I suppose many companies do so, but not so conspicuously.
