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

    Pros

    Good salary, good retirement plan, solid company, friendly coworkers.

    Room for advancement, if qualified. Would be easier if less-capable folks were let go.

    Cons

    Unbending processes, no authority at manager level, politics-driven.

    Upper management is totally unconnected with rank-and-file. Too many layers in the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Shake up the process of getting things done. Empower lower-level managers. Get rid of, or retask, most of the project managers.

    "Ridiculous trash/recycling policy at Philadelphia office"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA

    I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This review is exclusively about the trash/recycling policy at the Philadelphia office.

    Cons

    The building management at the Philadelphia office adopted a trash & recycling policy that removed trash cans from the offices and cubes. Workers have to walk their individual trash items to trash cans located in central areas or let the trash build up at our desks and make fewer trips. It is inefficient, inconvenient, wastes time, and is unsanitary.

    The stated reason for the policy is to reduce the amount of plastic trash can liners going to the landfill and is required by the city. I am skeptical. The liner were often reused. That is the trash was dumped out and the used liner remained in the can. I suspect the real reason for the policy is to reduce labor costs

    Advice to Management

    Push back against the policy and ask for the trash cans to be returned. Ask for reduced rent due to reduced service. Move workers out of the Philadelphia office to reduce or eliminate the need for office space there. It is not apparent that management is doing anything.
