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

    Pros

    I've worked at Lincoln for over 15 years, and I can honestly say that they live and breathe their commitment to honesty, integrity, confidentiality, diversity, and giving back to the community. They take their reputation seriously and it is truly a great company to work for.

    The salary is competitive-ish, but the benefits are top-notch: 401(k) with company matching *plus* a pension plan, several medical plans including a premium Blue Cross plan, dental/eye/disability insurance, generous vacation time, even pet insurance. There's probably about 100 other benefits I'm forgetting about - really, there are a lot!

    The people are a great part of LFG. There really is a culture of respect and professionalism, and the people are by-and-large very nice. And if you ever end up in a situation you're not happy with, they are very supportive of finding a new position within the company.

    Cons

    Like most of large corporations, LFG has a lot of bureaucracy and red tape that makes it frustrating to move nimbly. They do try, but they are a massive, conservative financial services company so you can only expect so much.

    Also, like most large companies, the work/life balance tends to tip in favor of "work".

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your employees' work/life balance is taken seriously. Pulling "all-night"-er to implement software might be OK once in a while, but every other weekend needs to stop.

    Pros

    Insurance benefits, events, little perks

    Cons

    pay first and foremost. Production demands literally forced down your throat which makes for a very unpleasant working environment.

    Advice to Management

    Put yourself in the employees shoes for once.
