    Pros

    Good people and mostly positive work environment. *********** Coaching and counseling is relevant to the position. I would likely return to work there. That is all I have to say.

    Pros

    401k benefit is great, but is changing as of 1/1/18.

    Cons

    Drinking buddies of leadership are promoted over qualified individuals.
    Managers are more worried about being fired than helping their reports advance.
    Pay is below the industry standard

    Advice to Management

    Look at the hiring practices of the Directors in the Omaha office.
    Listen to employees when they bring you complaints and concerns about Managers/Directors.

    Pros

    Great 401k plan and peers

    Cons

    Lincoln claims to be for their customers but has no focus on that. Many of the managers are clueless as to how to effectively manage a group of people and we're promoted based on who they were related to or went out to drink with. There is basically no human resource department as they do nothing to mitigate the misdeeds of managers who bully their workers to get what they want. Great employees are pushed out because they aren't "on the bus," while those that do not get their assignments done but, buddy up to the boss are praised. Do NOT go to work here. Substandard wages and no work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue, hire some managers that know how to do their job not just say yes to you. Human Resources help people out, don't throw them to the wolves.
