    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.

    Pros

    Great benefits. People aren't awful to work with, but they aren't raising the pay to match the industry so it's causing traffic jams in people moving up.
    It's the only way to get better money.

    Cons

    Start with awful pay. They force you to work crappy hours and say you will only be there for a short period of time, but it's probably not true.
    They claim it's easy to move up, but you really need to play the system to be able to do it.

    Cons

    Conservative Company, the nature of the business of life insurance can be a downer at times and the strict dress code

    Advice to Management

    Change with the times and offer a business smart dress code

    I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    401k match is great and training is great

    Cons

    Management is poor at communnicating. I can not count how many times something would come up and I wouldn't know about it. Also they will tell you, you are going to get paid for holiday hours, but you won't if your work part time under 20 hours and they specifically keep you at 19 hours for that exact reason.

    Advice to Management

    Would Honest Abe, the man we model ourselves after, really do something that intentionally pays employees as little as possible?

    I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Striving to improve
    Kept a clean reputation
    Capable management
    Diligent coworkers
    Good branding
    Company is working hard to remain competitive, and to gain that edge.

    Cons

    Went through a major acquisition phase.
    Took too long to congeal. Still disjointed, both internally and externally.
    Allowing competition to surpass itself.
    Slow and indecisive in branding, and in consolidating management offices.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid of letting go of your old ways. You must shed some assets and deadwood management in order to gain in the big picture.
