    I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lincoln Financial Group (LFG) is a fantastic company to work for. The pay is great for the market I'm in, but the benefits and work-life balance is incredible. The company contributes 10% of your salary to your 401(k) as long as you contribute 6% (including an end-of-year 4% contribution if you don't add a cent to it). The work from home benefit is also fantastic and provides a lot of flexibility to employees with sick...

    Pros

    LFG cares about it's employees and works to ensure people are engaged both at work and in their communities. Appreciating diversity is a big deal here. Generally, there is good communication and the bonuses are always nice!

    Workloads can be very heavy for long periods of time. It's a very big company and can be difficult to figure out who to go to in trying to solve a problem.

    Cons

    Employees are overworked, low morale

    Advice to Management

    As a claims examiner we should not be also doing the job of a call center. Competitors agree that this is not customer centric and will cost you a lot of business in the long run. Most companies have an established intake along with a call center to answer general inquiries about claims. Here claims examiners will be managing a caseload of about 600-800 leaves while also being on the phone. You are expected to review...

        Pros

        401k. Literally can’t think of anything else!

        Cons

        Where to start? Micromanagement, zero work-life balance. You go in everyday not knowing when you’ll get out. Management treats you like a slave and does not care about your personal life. Instead they often have loads of people quitting all at once so they go into a frenzy of hiring new people by lying to them about the overtime. I was one of them. Had multiple days where we were mandated to go in at least an hour if...

        Advice to Management

        There are so many things wrong I can’t even begin to imagine where to start. You have made Lincoln a very toxic place to work at and that is why you keep losing good talent everyday!
