Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Good benefits, competitive salary, generous time off, and flexible work schedule for salaried employees. Leadership is accessible and will listen to your concerns. Hard working employees, most have a very good work ethic. Very friendly people!

Cons

Limited flexibility for hourly employees. Need to update systems, rather antiquated. Need a more holistic on boarding program. Need to add more people in HR, the generalists are swamped.

Advice to Management

Give hourly employees more flexibility. Update old systems.

    I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company has good benefits, and the work is stable and the work hours are reasonable. With so many software systems adopted from acquisitions, there's a lot of software development and technology work throughout the organization.

    Cons

    As with many other large companies, the organization is very hierarchical and bureaucratic. There are many bad decisions that are made in a vacuum that end up wasting effort and money.

    Advice to Management

    Remove layers in the organization to better connect upper management with what's going on 'on the ground'. Adopt better ways to measure performance against goals, to better gauge what is and is not working, and whether decisions have yielded desired results.

    I worked at Lincoln Financial Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lincoln Financial Group is a smart, ethical company with great culture from top to bottom for serious professionals.

    Cons

    Lincoln does a good job of retaining people. The downside to staff retention is relative difficultly advancing from within. Some people will look for opportunities outside Lincoln and will eventually return at a higher level.

    Advice to Management

    Look for ways to increase mobility. Consider reaching across departments to give employees opportunities to develop and build stronger, more well rounded executive candidates.
