    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, training, brand name, location

    Cons

    Micro management is the number one priority for the sales managers. Incompetent, good old boy system where if you are in the "club" you are protected. Kinda racist too...overheard some off color jokes/comments about peoples background etc... They even have their "people" in HR so they get tipped off if someone complains about them...did I mention stressful work environment too??

    Advice to Management

    Get rid off the "club" and promote people who care and don't play favorites

    Pros

    Nice people, perm employees have decent benefits. Building is pretty decent, but the campus is beautiful. Really lovely landscaping. On site cafeteria.

    Cons

    Broker dealer is being shut down here. Employees with 30+ years with the company are loosing their jobs. My department looses more people every week. Company hasn't told the rest of the building that they hope to relocate all business down south and closet the building by the end of 2018. I would pursue a permanent position here if the outlook want so poor. Not the kind of environment I want to work in again. The situation is really sad in my area.

    I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Variety of duties, ability to work from home, flexible hours, good benefits and time off, promotes furthering education by providing internal classes and tuition reimbursement and supports the community.

    Cons

    Departments aren't always held to the same standards, depending on the division and unit employed in favorites drive the ship instead of the managers, feels more like a robotic paper factory than a company that sees their employees as people, some production units aren't able to leave the office until all work received that day has been completed, expectations can be unrealistic and usually have to leave a division or the company to get a decent increase in pay.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that employees are the backbone of the company and everyone deserves to be treated like a person with the same opportunities. It's okay to reward all employees for a job well done instead of only the employees that are nominated.
