I worked at Lincoln Financial Group

Pros

Good pay. Pleasant atmosphere. Myriad of perks. Employs a lot of people, props up the economy, keeps many families afloat.

Cons

Was like going backwards in time by 40 years, everyone smilingly working in slow motion, many of the activities adding no real value (other than taking up time and consequently getting more pay).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I'm guessing there isn't enough competition, else all the fat processes would be hurting the company. Maybe try Agile or Lean Six Sigma to provide a better value.

    Pros

    Co-workers are nice. Middle management is generally respectful of needs of employees. Pay is fair.

    Cons

    Very cliquey and political, especially as you advance into management. In many respects, if you are not inside, you're OUTSIDE. Recognition of work life balance seems to be declining sharply. We average at least one significant reorg every two years. Systems are dated with little recognition of that from management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less emphasis on form, more on function.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to believe in your employees. The company is changing and expectations continue to increase, but remember it is the employees that have gotten you to your level of success. This is not the time to reduce their benefits and training. Give your employees a break, especially those that have sacrificed personal time to keep your projects on track.
