    Pros

    Benefits are OK. Nothing great.

    Cons

    Do NOT work in the U.S. division!!!! I worked here for five years and the first three were great. Then in 2008 they hired a bunch of Lincoln Financial executives to run the U.S. They have run it into the ground. All they have done is close down businesses and laid off hundreds of people who were there for over 10 years. And when they laid off top executives, almost all were replaced by Lincoln executives who everyone hates. Everyone I know who is still there is miserable, hate their managers, underpaid, overworked and looking for a job. They layoffs have continued and some people were let go right before Christmas, with more on the way. Worst of all, management knows everyone is miserable and is doesn't care. Don't even think about working here.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees like dirt.
