    I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great retirement plan and solid benefits package; salaries and bonuses are reasonably competitive - not sky high, but certainly not bad either; company seems to genuinely value both its employees and customers; a positive work/life balance is encouraged (this can be team/department dependent); leadership is respected within the industry. All in all, Lincoln is a very good place to work.

    Cons

    Career advancement is S-L-O-W, as opportunities for advancement are hard to come by. This is still a company where many employees stay for 20 or 30 years. That being said, management has listened to employee feedback on this topic, taken heed, and has tried to implement a formal career management framework and associated practices within the last few years. It seems that real change "in the trenches" has yet to be realized, however. If you're a motivated, hard-charging employee looking for a meteoric (or even moderately paced) rise to the top, it's probably not going to happen here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work in the areas of employee engagement and continue to maintain a positive atmosphere. Continue working on concrete ways to help employees achieve professional growth and corresponding recognition/promotions.

    Pros

    LFG gives opportunities to speak with Management and Senior Leadership about concerns. They are concerned with employee satisfaction. The 401k benefit is generous at a 10% match. Employees receive 17 days PTO starting out (unless hired in at a higher PTO grade). Pay is competitive. Bonuses are given based on individual performance and profit performance. Many jobs offer flex time. Telecommuting is an option for some jobs. LFG supports the United Way and promotes diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

    Cons

    The cafeteria food and vending machine food is expensive. Parts of buildings need updates. They seem to be slowly addressing the building updates.

    I worked at Lincoln Financial Group part-time

    Pros

    $16 Voucher for food although stadium food is not that healthy. They do, however, have an alternative Protein Pack you can choose that usually had healthier options like fruit, cheese and crackers, pretzels, hummus, etc.

    Pretty decent hours if you don't need a lot of hours.

    Culture is pretty fun, upbeat, and overall fair.

    Cons

    Point system that could eventually lead to administrative review. Unfortunately, what could get you points is sometimes unfair and out of your control.

    Black out dates are required days, and if an emergency comes up, too bad, you'll get points if you call out. Also, secret shoppers could potentially get you points even if you're a good worker.

    Advice to Management

    Take it into consideration but don't put so much significance on secret shops of how good of a job an employee may be. They can sometimes be biased, and you aren't there to evaluate the situation yourself.
