Pros

Great benefits, strong company, wants to help its employees advance.

Cons

If you're looking to move up in the company, pure talent will no longer get you there. You must network with in the department of which you would like to join and essentially prove your worthiness.

Advice to Management

Lincoln is a great company, you are always looking out for the best interest in your employees. Unfortunately sometimes the best interest or candidate is overlooked due to someone who has ties with management.

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

    Pros

    Solid company with good salary and benefits (ie 401k and vacation time), lots of great people among the various business lines.
    Fair amount of growth opportunities, but all depends on where you work.

    Cons

    Would rate higher but organizational change following the merger with JP Corporation in Greensboro, NC making this a completely different company - LFG may have kept the name, but it's really just a variant of the old JP.
    Lost many good LFG people during this transition.
    Although several business lines are well managed, advice would be to run, don't walk away from Finance, especially in the Audit area, poorly managed by unqualified people (ie inexperience or lack of credentials), with a high attrition rate.
    Other areas appear to cut costs by "trimming the fat", but you could only ask people to continuously do more with less for so long.
    Quite sad, used to be a very good place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at leadership running areas that have high attrition and see what is really happening behind the curtains.
