    Great coworkers, projects and good culture of people. Great retirement plan!

    Cons

    financial services doesn't feel as stable as it once was

    Advice to Management

    I believe it is only a matter of time till the company fully recovers from this financial crisis. Strong commitment to our products and our employees have paid off well during the economic downturn.

    Pros

    At Lincoln they truly care about how you are doing as an individual. There is an effort to have balance between work and family.

    Cons

    Lincoln is not going to ever be the place that you go to work in order to recieve the top compensation available in your field.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep up the good work. You have helped to steer us through the choppy waters the last few years.

    Pros

    - Get exposed to various field related assignments - Team member are very polite - Growth Opportunities - Great Experience

    Cons

    - Salary is a little low - Don't pay for internships - Have to have previous experience to know how to work in this field

    Advice to Management

    - Will be much better if the interns, at least, the ones with good performance, were compensated in some way.


  6. Lincoln Financial Group is, without a doubt, one of the best places someone can work.

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

    Pros

    The opportunities for advancement are plentiful, management is fair (but firm) concerning HR policies, and the work itself is satisfying.

    Cons

    The compensation, in comparison with other companies in the industry, are below the average. The Customer Care Center is also one of the lowest paid departments, even though Customer Care Professionals handle over 5,000,000 service requests a year.

    Advice to Management

    I would investigate the industry for a salary comparison. I would also spend some considerable time cultivating talent from within if someone demonstrates a capacity to excel in a management role.

    Pros

    Training program geared to get you out in the field, quickly, if you put in the work. This is a relationship business, so you have to have those relationships inside the office before they will trust you outside of it. That being said, I have had several opportunities to meet with upper management and they really care about developing their talent.

    Cons

    You get out what you put in, which can lead to different levels of satisfaction if you are looking at this more as a job than a career. You really have to put in the time to develop relationships with the managers above you so they have a better idea of who you are before they are looking to hire.

    Typical Desk job, not very flexible hours

    Pros

    Lots of new project to get exposure and grow with company. Very helpful managers to get you training and exposure to new technologies and project work. Recognizance for years of service like 5 years, 10 years, etc.

    Cons

    Certain admin tasks take long time to complete due to lengthy process involved. Need to keep technology up to date rather than waiting too long to upgrade legacy systems.

    Pros

    Lincoln has an amazing senior leadership. The company empowers their employees to take charge of their careers. The work life balance is great. The senior leadership is not only thinking of their employees and company as of today but also making solid plans for their employees and business strategy moving forward.

    Cons

    Technology throughout the organization could be streamlined and simplified.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Keep walking the walk and showing everyone all the employees they can be successful with hard work.
