    I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    not much I can think of but a great benefits package

    Cons

    Directors are horrible, they don't trust their managers! If you voice your concerns directors say you are whining. Directors and AVPs don't show enough support to other offices! How can you effectively run a office by coming into town once a month! Not enough job opportunities in the Atlanta office! The Omaha office thinks they are the center of excellence! The turn over is extremely high and the Atlanta off will be loosing more employees due to the work load! The organization preaches work life balance but that's not true! Brokers, sales reps, and account managers are rude and sometimes use bad language to managers. This company is so unorganized, no one knows who to go to for help!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    trust your managers, come up with a recognition program! Open up more job opportunities in the Atlanta office! Stop making your employees feel like they are stupid and invest in your people! I don't see how this company can be a fortune anything company

    Pros

    excellent benefits. The pay is OK but the other benefits go above and beyond.

    Cons

    it reminds me of a four-headed dog -- there is no clear strategic direction. And no one seems to agree on individual priorities. I've also seen a lot of poor behavior from from leaders - micromanagement, meanness... and it is allowed to go on for too long

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    spend some time with folks more than one level down from you.

    I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    While the requirements for getting hired may be steep, incompetent people seem to do well here.

    Cons

    For a company that makes a killing in life insurance, they don't value people at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start over/burn it down/rebuild the culture completely. "One Lincoln" may seem like a nice slogan, but it's meaningless in it's current practice. It's also time to start investing in technology again.
    It's just a matter of time before before there's a data breach or the company gets pinched for using flimsy excuses for cancelling policies.

    I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits package including 401K

    Free continuing education in financial/insurance and tuition reimbursement.

    Fitness center

    Generous amounts of paid time off (especially for me since I have almost 20 years of service)

    Cons

    Understaffed and overworked. My manager should NEVER be allowed to manage people. A lot of bullying micromanagement, manipulation, and profanity. Current manager does not seem to keep confidential personnel information about fellow employees confidential.

    VERY outdated technology.

    The company's multicultural program is manic.

    The facility is outdated and shabby.

    Upper management is either oblivious to the actions of its managers or is deliberately looking the other way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Address the problem of rogue managers. They are a drain on productivity and you are losing valuable hardworking employees because of it.

    Pros

    Used to be a nice environment to work for.

    Cons

    If you don't have the background they want, you are screwed. If you only do a great job at work but not chat with senior management on sports during WORK HOURS, you are screwed.

    The "inclusive and diversity" slogan came out only because of the discrimination lawsuit. If you chat with big boss on sports everyday, or if you happen to come from the background that helps them with the lawsuit, you don't need to be capable for your position but will have the most secured job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up! Great employees are leaving, leaving or being left. Where are they moving to? Your competitors!
