I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Culture is excellent for a medium sized company at the division level. A lack of formality and hierarchy makes interactions between entry level to executive level employees common and comfortable.

Cons

A fast pace and a forgiving culture means that having a focus on strategic goals tends to fall by the wayside. Leadership while friendly tends to fall more toward an individual contributor level of work instead of a leadership level of work.

Advice to Management

Brining in more strategic minded and driven leadership will help tighten the leaky ship of processes and goal alignment.

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

    Pros

    The company offers good benefits. It offers tuition reimbursement and pays for training/designations as long as they apply/improve your job skills.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, you have to relocate in order to grow. Also, compensation is not very competitive.

    Advice to Management

    The bottom line shouldn't be the dominant factor when making decisions that affect people's lives.

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

    Pros

    Benefits,
    some cool holidays off like President's day and Good Friday

    Cons

    Work Every Christmas eve and Black Friday
    If management tells on you to their boss or HR, you never have the chance to explain your own story. Very one sided. You feel like you have no one to turn to and talk to about the pressure you feel from your boss. HR could care less
    Constantly given more and more by management and then told you do everything wrong.
    Never given a compliment or raises.
    Management is constantly driving you to return their calls, do their work, and run their errands (including addressing their own personal Christmas cards from their family!)

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the field staff and pay more to the administrative assistants doing all the work instead of constantly sending management and agents on grand trips. Give better raises and bonuses without taxing the crap out of us. The pay for a new business associate or admin asst is a joke.
