    Pros

    Management believes in promotion from within. There are multiple growth opportunities and hard work does not go unnoticed.

    Cons

    Workloads can be heavy from October-March. If you are not willing to put in extra hours during this time of year you may become overwhelmed trying to keep up.

    Pros

    Lincoln is a great company to work for! In my four years there, I've noticed a continuous strive for improvement, a strong bond between the employees, and a well-rounded work-life balance. This company does an amazing job of balancing extrinsic and intrinsic rewards and maintaining a fair and honest culture.

    Cons

    Very seldom am I speechless but I honestly can't think of any cons for this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work and continue to involve and support employees and we'll keep growing!

    I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    This is a sales organization so the focus is on sales. As long as you are in one of the sales divisions you have significant earning and job satisfaction potential. Fantastic 401k match and strong annual bonus potential.

    Cons

    A little weak in health benefits but they make it up with the 401k. Like every company this size, leadership has some pockets of empty suits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring only Merrill people.

    In my career, Lincoln Financial stands out head-and-shoulders above other employers that I have worked for. If you are looking for a company with some autonomy and the empowerment to make your career your own, this is the company for you!

    Pros

    Lincoln has an amazing senior leadership. The company empowers their employees to take charge of their careers. The work life balance is great.

    Technology throughout the organization could be streamlined and simplified.
