Plenty of technology work going on, but organization is very hierarchical and bureaucratic

I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group as a contractor (more than 3 years)

Pros

Company has good benefits, and the work is stable and the work hours are reasonable. With so many software systems adopted from acquisitions, there's a lot of software development and technology work throughout the organization.

Cons

As with many other large companies, the organization is very hierarchical and bureaucratic. There are many bad decisions that are made in a vacuum that end up wasting effort and money.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remove layers in the organization to better connect upper management with what's going on 'on the ground'. Adopt better ways to measure performance against goals, to better gauge what is and is not working, and whether decisions have yielded desired results.

    I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    there was a gym in the building we had access to. but that's the only Pro

    Cons

    IT there is horrible and not secure with software and software licenses. management is horrible and rude. other employees make you pay to use the toaster on the floor. So I brought in a free one for everyone to use and they flipped out and had it taken away. too much drama. under paid employees, and everyone seems to be completely disposable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    spend less time on yourself and more on the employees, spend less time pointing fingers and more time just getting the job done and helping each other.
