Pros

Lincoln Financial Group is a smart, ethical company with great culture from top to bottom for serious professionals.

Cons

Lincoln does a good job of retaining people. The downside to staff retention is relative difficultly advancing from within. Some people will look for opportunities outside Lincoln and will eventually return at a higher level.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look for ways to increase mobility. Consider reaching across departments to give employees opportunities to develop and build stronger, more well rounded executive candidates.

    Pros

    Great benefits! Good culture for the most part... Encourages local involvement in charity work.

    Cons

    Too top heavy... too many in upper management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mske sure you look at realistic numbers before making decisions... lots of data is just smoke and mirrors -- and decisions are not logical

    Pros

    Nice people and decent benefits. A conservative company that's not taking big financial risk

    Cons

    Very isolated and segmented. Nobody understands what the other areas of the business do. No integration of systems. For a company that has teams in all different locations you'd think they'd get video conferencing at least. No money spent on the most basic of systems. HR dept is a joke. I left voluntarily but they didn't even do an exit interview which is weird for a large corporation. There's a lot of tension between the different locations as everyone is afraid of losing jobs through layoffs and relocation to the corporate office in Philly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management rarely listens to employees. Why would they start now.
