    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.

    Lincoln has great benefits, compensation, and is a key employer in Fort Wayne. There is a great training program, offering opportunities for development along with tuition assistance. Six Sigma driven.

    A hierarchical approach to decision making often leads to negative, downstream impacts that front line employees have to deal with. Culture seems to be turning away from a people focus to a profit and business focus only.

    Empower your front line workers, they have extensive knowledge & skills that go untapped.
