    Lincoln is a very ethical place where you can be proud of the culture, the company and your team members.

    Lincoln is focus on growth. Growth is fun and growth creates opportunities for all team members.

    Cons

    Lincoln is not for everybody. It expects excellent judgment, passion and impact. It wants people to be curious, use ingenuity, and have the courage to take risks. To live up to the culture, it requires people to be more committed to their job than most places. You should love what you do and excel at it or do not work at Lincoln

    Advice to Management

    Continue focusing on growth which creates opportunities for junior team members to move up to become senior team members and leaders.
