Sales Comp Analyst at Lincoln

Sales Compensation Analyst (Current Employee)
Radnor, PA (US)

I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group full-time for more than 3 years

ProsExcellent independence and work environment. Great hands off managers. High level of talent within the workplace. Very quick to adapt to market changes. Good support of independent thinking and promotes continuous improvement in any means you would like to execute.

ConsLimited training opportunities and most of it is voluntary. I personally think training should be mandatory so everyone is on the same page.
Frequent organizational changes that are some times unecessary.
Heavy reliance on external consulting when the answer and solutions are already known by the operations/front line employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou hire some of the best people in the industry, but that doesn't mean they can rest on their laurels. Ramp up your training program for both sales and operations, especially internals.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Very typical company that is a large corporation.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group

ProsGreat 401k plan and benefits. Has on site cafeteria and Starbucks. Lots of opportunity for advancement. Most of management has an "open door" policy.

ConsContact Center is more focused on stats as opposed to the customer experience. They say they are focused on the customer experience but they equate that only to hold times.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to all of your employees. They are the ones that speak to the customers. If their morale is down because of what management has put in place, change. Taking paid holidays away from employees really hurts morale (granted, when you are being paid 2 1/2 times your pay on a holiday, it helps). But when people make plans for a holiday and then 3 weeks before the holiday, they are told that they will be working, it really hurts morale.

Great company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group full-time for more than 10 years

ProsA company that truly tries to do what is right for the client while making a profit along the way. They do offer a good Work-Life Balance compared with other companies in the Financial Services Industry. Many individuals will work at Lincoln for 10+,20+,30+ and even 40+ years

ConsLincoln will never pay top dollar

Advice to Senior ManagementYou've weathered the financial storm of 2008, you corporate strategy appears to be on track. Keep up the good work.

Excellent culture, Strategy needs Focus

Specialist, Training (Current Employee)
Omaha, NE (US)

I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group full-time for more than 5 years

ProsCulture is excellent for a medium sized company at the division level. A lack of formality and hierarchy makes interactions between entry level to executive level employees common and comfortable.

ConsA fast pace and a forgiving culture means that having a focus on strategic goals tends to fall by the wayside. Leadership while friendly tends to fall more toward an individual contributor level of work instead of a leadership level of work.

Advice to Senior ManagementBrining in more strategic minded and driven leadership will help tighten the leaky ship of processes and goal alignment.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
