    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!

    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

    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.
