    Pros

    Great benefits, lots of incentives to participate in activities with co-workers. Gym in site and discounts on health insurance if you joined.

    Cons

    Large company, you can get lost in the amount of employees. Having said that, you can grow in the company if you voice your interest.

    Advice to Management

    Technology needs to be updated to the 21st century. A lot of the software used was really outdated and frustrating to use for people that are very technology savvy deterring the younger workforce.

    Pros

    Stability, Professionalism, Benefits, People. LFG is a good company and provides a stepping stone to advance your career path whether you choose to stay with the company or move on.

    Cons

    Career path, politics, bureaucracy, change management. As with any company that has been in business for a very long time (100 yrs), there are some ingrained cultural attributes that may not serve the best interest of today's professionals. Too many of the "old guard" are in management positions and will not easily adapt to the demands of today's workforce or customers.

    Advice to Management

    Promote the right talent and instill a culture of accountability in practice. Recognize and promote those who show initiative, achieve results and great potential without having to be sponsored by management in a lengthy bureaucratic process.

    Pros

    From what I've seen, they're all about promoting within, and at least in Finance, they're very interested in your development. Becoming a CPA isn't just encouraged--they'll pay for your review materials as long as you're serious about studying and becoming a CPA. As with all Lincoln positions, the benefits are top-notch. You get 16% in your 401k when you contribute 6%, and they give more PTO to new employees that I ever needed or even wanted.

    Cons

    I've heard others on Glassdoor say that Lincoln pays less than comparable companies, but I don't know that there's any truth to that. Even if there is, you can't argue with the benefits and career development opportunities.

    Pros

    there is a ton of perk, the benefits especially the 401k are great there is a great team environment, and a ton of room to learn and grow with your team or independently.

    Cons

    Like any big company there is corporate bs that goes on, for the most part however there is limited visibility into it at least from my mid level position.

    Advice to Management

    I am in such a unique situation that it would be hard for me to give any input or advice to management, at least i do not believe it would be of any value at this point.
