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

Pros

Very authentic senior management, good benefits, mid size insurance company. Managed to survive financial crisis, but not immune to another crisis.

Cons

Very poor middle management, short term goals undermine long term core values of company. Uncompetitive compensation, at best suited for sub-par professions who want to sit for a few years. Advancement opportunities are not given on basis of merit. Waste of budgets every year, tv ads misrepresent internal company realities, but great marketing dept.

Advice to Management

Disconnect between Senior management and employees. Problem is mid level management at manager and director level, abuse of power issues. Merit not rewarded, Lincoln would not approve. Outsourcing services and functions very short term benefits, long term risks.

    I worked at Lincoln Financial Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company provides great support for actuarial students to progress through the rigorous exam process. The actuarial program is very structured and provides appropriate incentives.

    Cons

    There seem to still be some struggles with integration from the merger with Jefferson Pilot. There is culture clash and miscommunication between campuses.

    Advice to Management

    Lincoln Financial Group is a great company and a great employer. I would still be there if human resources hadn't botched my relocation!
