    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

    During my time at LFG, you always felt the customer was put first. The primary market was high net worth customers that wanted a holistic approach to balancing their future risks. The organization was challenging in its time of change (mergers, shedding dept, economic downturns) - but as an employee, it served to challenge your own assumptions about the insurance business. Lastly, the work-life balance is truth, not fiction. The Lincoln Foundation is woven throughout the workplace. Community service is supported during and off work hours.

    Cons

    A current con to working at LFG would be the commodity driven approach adopted. It is a completely different mindset to working with customers and operations.

    Advice to Management

    I do not have any advice to offer the leadership at LFG. Ideally, the dynamics of the current leadership will not reduce the creativeness that lead LFG to its status.

    Pros

    Everybody in the Lincoln network were very nice and hard working. No matter what you would need help in, you were able to call any division for help and things got done

    Cons

    The downside is that some of the operations and software that were used are a bit out of date. On a few occasions some the programs needed would freeze

    Advice to Management

    The company is great. The management should keep up with what they are doing. Everything in the network is transparent and they give great help and guidance to the employees.

    Advice to Management

    In my career, Lincoln Financial stands out head-and-shoulders above other employers that I have worked for. If you are looking for a company with some autonomy and the empowerment to make your career your own, this is the company for you!

    Pros

    It was close to home and great people. ALot of work and very hard to stay on top of things. Low compensation and since they are based in Ft Wayne and Philadelphia, tough to move up if you are not from that area of town. People are great and I was well rewarded verbaly as well as monetarily. At the time I was there new advisors wer not brought on. Don't know if that changed.

    Cons

    Most people have been there for a very long time and it is hard to get into the group as needed.

    Advice to Management
