    Stressful

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

    Pros

    Great teamwork among mid level managers. Decent pay and great 401k benefits.

    Cons

    Horrible recordkeeping system and poor training of employees in client administration. The company has many long term employees in their Fort Wayne, IN office who are not progressive and have no external experience. Company needs to move their home office to a progressive city.

    Pros

    Superb people. Strong focus on bottom line and viability of business.

    Cons

    Decision making by senior leaders is slow; impacts execution. Everyone is allowed to have an opinion, which is great but impacts decision making.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take educated/calculated risks. Know when to empower "the masses" but also make your decision and stick by it - that is what they are paying you for!

    Don't look at numbers ... anything can be "proven" if the numbers are jumbled correctly.

    Pros

    not much I can think of but a great benefits package

    Cons

    Directors are horrible, they don't trust their managers! If you voice your concerns directors say you are whining. Directors and AVPs don't show enough support to other offices! How can you effectively run a office by coming into town once a month! Not enough job opportunities in the Atlanta office! The Omaha office thinks they are the center of excellence! The turn over is extremely high and the Atlanta off will be loosing more employees due to the work load! The organization preaches work life balance but that's not true! Brokers, sales reps, and account managers are rude and sometimes use bad language to managers. This company is so unorganized, no one knows who to go to for help!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    trust your managers, come up with a recognition program! Open up more job opportunities in the Atlanta office! Stop making your employees feel like they are stupid and invest in your people! I don't see how this company can be a fortune anything company
