    I worked at Lincoln Financial Advisors part-time

    Pros

    The management truly cares about career development for their partners. Everyone is treated respectfully and there is as much time spent learning about the industry and the business as there is performing your basic tasks. The growth potential is huge.

    Cons

    Without attention to detail you will fail here. The compliance in the Finance industry is bar none and if you can't handle that, you will not be a good fit.

    nice people, great work environment, everyone is intelligent and willing to answer questions

    Strong culture and values. Great benefits. 17 days PTO plus 9 paid holidays. 4% core contribution plus match up to 6% on 401(k)

    lower than average salary, suppose this is trade off from good benefits. Hard to further career and get pay raises.

    Overall Lincoln is a very good company to work for. However if you are hungry and trying to move up the ladder it may be hard.
