    I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group full-time

    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 have been working at Lincoln Financial Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I really love this company. They have great benefits, treat and train their employees well, and promote team work. The culture is conducive to work life balance.

    Cons

    You can get stuck in a role if you don't elevate yourself. Other than that, I don't see any real cons that you wouldn't see in other corporate companies.

    Advice to Management

    Try and exploit talents across all divisions. Perhaps allow employees to work on cross-functional projects so that they can get a feel for other areas within the company.
