    Pros

    From what I've seen, they're all about promoting within, and at least in Finance, they're very interested in your development. Becoming a CPA isn't just encouraged--they'll pay for your review materials as long as you're serious about studying and becoming a CPA. As with all Lincoln positions, the benefits are top-notch. You get 16% in your 401k when you contribute 6%, and they give more PTO to new employees that I ever needed or even wanted.

    Cons

    I've heard others on Glassdoor say that Lincoln pays less than comparable companies, but I don't know that there's any truth to that. Even if there is, you can't argue with the benefits and career development opportunities.

    Pros

    there is a ton of perk, the benefits especially the 401k are great there is a great team environment, and a ton of room to learn and grow with your team or independently.

    Cons

    Like any big company there is corporate bs that goes on, for the most part however there is limited visibility into it at least from my mid level position.

    Advice to Management

    I am in such a unique situation that it would be hard for me to give any input or advice to management, at least i do not believe it would be of any value at this point.

    Pros

    Work is meaningful as you have the ability to change someone's life while they are ill or hurt. It is a challenging work environment so you are never bored or without work.

    Cons

    Work environment is chaotic at times. Work life balance is hard to have majority of time due to being understaffed, but management is working on getting more staff.

    Advice to Management

    Pay closer attention to staffing and do not let it get so far understaffed that it creates service issues. It makes it extremely difficult to meet service expectations when understaffed.

    Pros

    Job security and benefits. This is a classic office job. Super easy work, just show up, breathe, and get pay with benefits. People are friendly.

    Cons

    Yes, you are paid, no, it's not very much. I pushed back on this and was able to negotiate a modest increase in starting pay. Starting pay matters a lot since all of your future earning potential is going to be clawing after percentage based increases on this. This work is boring, you move bits of data from one screen to another. Your job should have been replaced by a computer 10 years ago. It could be replaced by a computer tomorrow. Your job security comes from the extreme aversion to new technology in the life insurance industry.

    Advice to Management

    Why is your pay secret? It makes you look like you're doing some shady dealing in the background. If you're paying people a fair and livable wage then you should be proud of that. The fact that you won't let employees share pay info makes me think you're not super interested in paying people fairly.
