    Pros

    Good back but better benefits. I have never seen such a good 401k in the industry. I wouldn't leave for that alone.

    Cons

    A lot of change. It's hard to keep up with the change so I just sit back and do my job; which they let me do

    I worked at Lincoln Financial Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, work environment okay, colleagues usually helpful and are team players. Upper management makes some effort to keep employees informed of what is going on in the company.

    Cons

    Stressful work environment. Although company proclaims "work/life balance", there is none in some areas of the company. Typical expectation is that employees will work in excess of 40 hours per week, every week. So projects are planned assuming overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Be cognizant of employees' health, well-being and personal lives, promote work/life balance. Find ways to meet business needs without expecting employees to work 50-60 hours/week on a regular basis.

    I worked at Lincoln Financial Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay was decent at Lincoln, I would say slightly above average for this area but the benefits were excellent and made up for the salary. It was a clean place to work with a few good perks like a cafeteria and a coffee shop and an hour for lunch. Hours were also good.

    Cons

    The particular job I had required almost 8 hrs of non-stop walking, standing, lifting, and etc so it was quite physical. It was also an insanely busy place to work but not terrible. The only real con I would say is management. There are too many managers and they will all tell you something different.

    Advice to Management

    Too many chiefs, every managers managers manager doesn't need a manager! Stop focusing on the cents because you are letting the dollars escape!!!

    Pros

    Interesting work in dynamic business. 401k match is excellent, other benefits are solid, coffee shop and cafeteria in the building

    Cons

    For what's expected of some of us, the salary is really poor. Workload is not appropriately balanced between groups in the same area. Many people have time to lounge and chatter while others work straight through lunch. The overall atmosphere is lackadaisical at best which is extremely worrisome for accounting organization. P.S. Unless you walk on water, expect no more than 2% merit increases in any given year. You might as well relax....working hard doesn't get you anything.

    Advice to Management

    You MUST pay for performance. You have a culture that is rewarding the unmotivated and it shows in your turnover. you are losing your valued staff to other companies willing to pay them what they are worth. even worse, you are retaining people that get work done when they feel like it and it may or may not be correct. it's shameful. My days are numbered.
