    I worked at Lincoln Financial Group full-time

    Pros

    1. good cafeteria 2. nice underground parking 3. clean bathrooms 4. pretty good technology

    Cons

    1. care about there bottom dollar before the care of their employees 2. management can do anything they want to do...even if it is not right 3. management micromanages their departments way too much. They need to leave us alone so we can do our jobs. 4. too many meetings. 5. writing up reviews every year is an arduous process

    Advice to Management

    Start appreciating the people you have instead of your bottom dollar. It was a great place to work for when Bob Bates was in charge. Now managers do anything they want to even if it is unfair. You do not value your people at all. How sad for you because you are loosing some of your better people.

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

    Pros

    Worked with some amazing and most hard working people I have ever met.

    Cons

    Micromanaged to exhaustion. No support from managers, really early hours, only to be called 5 mins after start to see if I showed up. Typos on report caused a bad review no pay increase the 2 yrs I worked there due to bad support and no direction from upper. Even though it asked repeatedly for guidance to ensure I was doing a good job, nothing, but a bad review. Been around in the business world for over 20 yrs, worst place ever!

    Advice to Management

    Knock it off, and have normal managers, supportive. And pay better, took a 28% pay increase to work there, time of the crash, I had to take something. Worked my tail off, did a good job, and nothing in return from the company.
