    Former Employee - Executive Assistant in Houston, TX (US)

    I worked at Lockton Companies full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I was fortunate to work under the CEO and a few founding partners. The culture was fun and caring. I believe these were the best years of my life and sometimes I regret leaving but after almost 10 years it was time to take on some more challenges. This company isn't perfect for everyone but if you are a self starter and willing to show your drive, they support you 100%. If you are loyal, they are loyal.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be hard to get promoted here. You really have toot your own horn a lot and to many of the up and coming powers to get noticed but I believe that is because everyone is staying so busy. They hire at a decent salary but the raises and bonus program needs some attention. I left for financial reasons. The only other downfall might be their medical benefits because they are linked up with other offices that have high risk employees under their policy. When I was single I think I paid almost $350 month for health insurance and the deductible was $2,500 and then when I had a child it was almost $500 a month with a 5K deductible. That is hard for those who aren't going to pay 5K in health costs. My child and I never reached that and paying full price for doctor visits, lab work, etc. hurt my wallet sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the new management coming into power once the old guys retire....keep it fun and show you care. TFK made sure the culture there was fun and he showed he cared about the employees. He treated everyone like family. The raises aren't too great and the bonus program can use some work but sometimes I felt like the work/life balance made up for that. I felt appreciated there and that alone made me want to come into work and bust my tail for all of you guys. I felt like I left family behind when I resigned.

    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

    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?
