    Pros

    Great Corporate Company to work for

    Cons

    Position was considered remote.

    Make sure the managers know how to manage remote employees and to provide the necessary support. Staff was too busy to provide assistance.

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

    Pros

    Strong advocate of personal life and community service. Less politics than anywhere else I have worked.

    Cons

    The company seems confused about office v. WFH. Want flexibility yet exciting initiatives require you to be in one of their prime locations. Also outsourcing most of the IT help so service is slowly degrading.

    Advice to Management

    Be more trusting of staff. Seems like decisions are announced well after any opportunity for feedback from employees.

    Pros

    Great overall benefit package with great 401k and company paid life and disability
    Yearly bonus based off of company performance
    Large company with opportunities for advancement
    Some areas offer work from home options

    Cons

    Low level management is too worried about things that don’t impact your peformance in your job, but rather how many skill soft classes you take that are irrelevant to your job
    Favoritism is prevalent
    Do not hold low performing workers accountable, but rather push their work off to the top performers
    Poorly defined job roles
