    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Career Framework is a great tool to utilize when conducting coaching sessions, and writing a job description

    I worked at Lincoln Financial Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the work that I did with the company. I was able to interact on a daily basis with clients about their policies.

    Cons

    If you are not related to someone there are "know" someone then you were overlooked for any kind of career change. I was not allowed to advance in my career there at all. I felt like I was overlooked in a lot of positions where I felt I was more than qualified to do. Also I felt that they gave way to much attention to the GLBTS group than they did to other organizations that really deserve it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of worrying about what your employees are doing by trying to get your employees to tattle, you need to look at the ones that are helping you to spread the rumors. Those type of employees are the ones that will throw you under the bus to get ahead. That includes going for your job!

    I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits package including 401K

    Free continuing education in financial/insurance and tuition reimbursement.

    Fitness center

    Generous amounts of paid time off (especially for me since I have almost 20 years of service)

    Cons

    Understaffed and overworked. My manager should NEVER be allowed to manage people. A lot of bullying micromanagement, manipulation, and profanity. Current manager does not seem to keep confidential personnel information about fellow employees confidential.

    VERY outdated technology.

    The company's multicultural program is manic.

    The facility is outdated and shabby.

    Upper management is either oblivious to the actions of its managers or is deliberately looking the other way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Address the problem of rogue managers. They are a drain on productivity and you are losing valuable hardworking employees because of it.
