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

    Pros

    From what I've seen, they're all about promoting within, and at least in Finance, they're very interested in your development. Becoming a CPA isn't just encouraged--they'll pay for your review materials as long as you're serious about studying and becoming a CPA. As with all Lincoln positions, the benefits are top-notch. You get 16% in your 401k when you contribute 6%, and they give more PTO to new employees that I ever needed or even wanted.

    Cons

    I've heard others on Glassdoor say that Lincoln pays less than comparable companies, but I don't know that there's any truth to that. Even if there is, you can't argue with the benefits and career development opportunities.

    Pros

    Lincoln is huge, 9000 employees, so I can only speak for my office in Greensboro NC. But this was a company that shows it truly cares about it's employees. Lincoln trusted it's employees, you had room to breathe, make decisions on your work and even to a lesser extent your own schedule. Everyone was open to helping everyone. Positive attitudes everywhere.

    Cons

    There aren't many to be honest. Possibly that they don't have any business offices in Texas?

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

    Pros

    Fantastic opportunity to be able to continue growing in the benefits field, with an extremely flexible schedule. Awesome training programs, thorough compliance measures. Great sense of ethics throughout whole organization and peers.

    Cons

    Sometimes, work requests are a little low, so few calls come in to assign one to work.

    Advice to Management

    None. We all understand, it depends on the market, the need, the client, the hours, cost and so on.
