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

    Pros

    The company overall is amazing. Great benefits, competitive pay.

    Cons

    Group Protection department and specifically the Short-Term disablity area is extremely disappointing. Senior management does not care about or value the employees wellbeing, time or effort that is put into these claims. They don't care about the fact that each examiner has almost 200 claimants. They expect you to work as if you are in a call center and answer every phone call which is literally impossible. The turnover rate is ridiculous as they have no way to keep new employees beyond 6 months after their training ends. Several managers have quit within the last 4 months alone. LFG overall is a great company, if you can get in anywhere else besides short term disability you'll be in a good place.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. If they are all overwhelmed, stressed, and upset DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. Hire more STD examiners and figure out a way to boost employee morale and retain the people that you hire.

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

    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.

    Pros

    ive notice a lot of opportunity in growth here in the Atlanta office since we have a new larger location.

    Cons

    with every corporate america job there are internal politics involved in how high you get to go and they definitely feed into that here.

    Advice to Management

    i would like for people to have a clear understanding as to where their performance stands and what they specifically need to do to get better. it would also be nice to have a mentor-ship program.

    I worked at Lincoln Financial Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, and investment in employees

    Cons

    Immature technology infrastructure, resources and especially leadership. Overall, poor leadership and highly passive aggressive environment.

    Advice to Management

    Accept what you don't know and leverage those resources who have more technology experience. There is a difference in the "what" and the "how". You need to get out of your own way. Lack of good decision making within the Senior Leadership Team.
