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

Pros

Exposure to financial modeling, actuarial modeling and equity risk hedging. Excellent center city Philadelphia location convenient for driving or mass transit. Good working environment and office camaraderie. Mostly young office with many hardworking goal oriented people. Support for career development including educational reimbursement or time off while studying for professional certs

Cons

Can be a high pressure environment especially during periods of market volatility. Cultural fit is important and will work against you if you don't conform. Complicated financial models are stored in excel spreadsheets and emailed around with no concept of version control. Salaries are not competitive with financial services firms in NYC but are competitive for the Philly labor market.

    I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay is fair, though arguably lower than competition. Teams can be friendly, pretty talented workers, and respectable work/life balance and benefits. Stable company, as well, but a bit too complacent.

    Cons

    Extremely, extremely political. Expect to be shoved around by management and HR. You have to "fit" or you will not last. Double-standards across colleagues depending on if they like you or not, regardless of your work. Furthermore, technology is outdated, and the corporate office is far too corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are genuinely not happy, you will hear horror stories and politics, but people know HR is out to get them. Take a second look at equitable treatment, and this is coming from a current employee.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits package including 401K

    Free continuing education in financial/insurance and tuition reimbursement.

    Fitness center

    Generous amounts of paid time off (especially for me since I have almost 20 years of service)

    Cons

    Understaffed and overworked. My manager should NEVER be allowed to manage people. A lot of bullying micromanagement, manipulation, and profanity. Current manager does not seem to keep confidential personnel information about fellow employees confidential.

    VERY outdated technology.

    The company's multicultural program is manic.

    The facility is outdated and shabby.

    Upper management is either oblivious to the actions of its managers or is deliberately looking the other way.

    Advice to Management

    Address the problem of rogue managers. They are a drain on productivity and you are losing valuable hardworking employees because of it.
