  1.  

    My experience at Lincoln was extremely pleasant, fulfilling, and challenging.

    I worked at Lincoln Financial Group as an intern

    Pros

    The office culture was very collegial. I was given meaningful work and real responsibility. My co-workers were friendly, responsive, and outgoing.

    Cons

    There was no formal training program. Everything I learned, I learned on the fly. Also, there were more down days than I expected. I often found myself without projects or work to do.

    I worked at Lincoln Financial Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lincoln Financial Group is a smart, ethical company with great culture from top to bottom for serious professionals.

    Cons

    Lincoln does a good job of retaining people. The downside to staff retention is relative difficultly advancing from within. Some people will look for opportunities outside Lincoln and will eventually return at a higher level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for ways to increase mobility. Consider reaching across departments to give employees opportunities to develop and build stronger, more well rounded executive candidates.

    Pros

    Lincoln is a great company to work for! In my four years there, I've noticed a continuous strive for improvement, a strong bond between the employees, and a well-rounded work-life balance. This company does an amazing job of balancing extrinsic and intrinsic rewards and maintaining a fair and honest culture.

    Cons

    Very seldom am I speechless but I honestly can't think of any cons for this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work and continue to involve and support employees and we'll keep growing!

    Management believes in promotion from within. There are multiple growth opportunities and hard work does not go unnoticed.

    Workloads can be heavy from October-March. If you are not willing to put in extra hours during this time of year you may become overwhelmed trying to keep up.

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

    Pros

    This is a sales organization so the focus is on sales. As long as you are in one of the sales divisions you have significant earning and job satisfaction potential. Fantastic 401k match and strong annual bonus potential.

    Cons

    A little weak in health benefits but they make it up with the 401k. Like every company this size, leadership has some pockets of empty suits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring only Merrill people.
