    I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group full-time (Less than a year)

    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.

    I worked at Lincoln Financial Group as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Professional environment, managers care about you, team members are fantastic and friendly. Working spaces are great too.

    Cons

    Pay is low, and workload doesn't justify what they are paying. Advancement beyond associate will take many years of working. This is an excellent opportunity if you have had struggles finding a job, looks great on your resume, Lincoln Financial is very reputable. Great starting point for experience, which will hopefully lead to bigger and better opportunities after your time is done at LFG.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Great.
