I worked at Lincoln Financial Group

Pros

Reasonable compensation and some room for growth if in right area; may find supervisor willing to mentor and advance career

Cons

Ineffectual HR department allows some managers to run roughshod over good employees; recent merger not effectively implemented in many areas. Too many layoffs not well thought out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to do a much better job of long range planning, and decisions as to what functions are performed in which locations needs to be rethought from scratch. "Talent" management process needs major improvement.

    Insurance at its Best

    Pros

    During my time at LFG, you always felt the customer was put first. The primary market was high net worth customers that wanted a holistic approach to balancing their future risks. The organization was challenging in its time of change (mergers, shedding dept, economic downturns) - but as an employee, it served to challenge your own assumptions about the insurance business. Lastly, the work-life balance is truth, not fiction. The Lincoln Foundation is woven throughout the workplace. Community service is supported during and off work hours.

    Cons

    A current con to working at LFG would be the commodity driven approach adopted. It is a completely different mindset to working with customers and operations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I do not have any advice to offer the leadership at LFG. Ideally, the dynamics of the current leadership will not reduce the creativeness that lead LFG to its status.

    This is the oddest place to work, way too top heavy and no one makes a decision.

    Pros

    The compensation is good, the people are great b

    Cons

    Nothing is urgent. Too many avp'so who will not make decisions unless it's by committee. Entirely a meeting based culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff appropriately, empower employers, thin the AvP level. Add more managers who know what's really going on.
