Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Lincoln Financial Group full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Excellent benefits include their 401k match, HSA medical option, tele-commuting, max contribution to education, really friendly and helpful environment (I've been told it's the nicest place to work from employees coming from other companies), plus annual bonus for non-sales positions.

Cons

Quite low employee turnover so career advancement can be frustrating and high probability of doing 2+ jobs at the same time. No mentoring system in place.

Advice to Management

Lots of talk about career mapping for years, but never implemented. I also suggest a mentoring and/or internship for current employees, not just for new graduates coming in via LDP.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Pay is ok. Hours are good - no weekends. People are generally very nice.

    Cons

    Pay (just ok)
    Micromanagement
    Does not ask for employee opinion often enough.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up.
    Don't judge a book by it's cover.
    Cross-locational attempt and current re-org are making your employee's miserable.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    Company is becoming more "corporate". More layers. More red tape.

    Advice to Management

    While culture change is inevitable, let's not forget the values and people that made Lincoln a great company for years.
