Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Lincoln Financial Group full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Excellent benefits include their 401k match, HSA medical option, tele-commuting, max contribution to education, really friendly and helpful environment (I've been told it's the nicest place to work from employees coming from other companies), plus annual bonus for non-sales positions.

Cons

Quite low employee turnover so career advancement can be frustrating and high probability of doing 2+ jobs at the same time. No mentoring system in place.

Advice to Management

Lots of talk about career mapping for years, but never implemented. I also suggest a mentoring and/or internship for current employees, not just for new graduates coming in via LDP.

    I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is ok. Hours are good - no weekends. People are generally very nice.

    Cons

    Pay (just ok) Micromanagement Does not ask for employee opinion often enough.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up. Don't judge a book by it's cover. Cross-locational attempt and current re-org are making your employee's miserable.

    Pros

    Overall, the company provides competitive pay upon hire, good benefits and tuition assistance. Employees are encouraged to pursue continued education when able.

    Cons

    There seems to be a disconnect with mgmt and staff due to a lack of communication/transparency and challenges with accountability among staff. There is also difficultly in maintaining a work/life balance, limited career advancement, outdated technology and unclear company direction. Tied together with a stressful, high pressure work environment with a strong emphasis on numbers is resulting in poor employee morale and high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the disconnect by taking the time to communicate with the workforce to identify the issues causing the high turnover especially since the more experienced employees are the ones leaving. Develop and enforce strategies to address these issues and focus on improving/strengthening employee retention.
