    I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group

    Pros

    I enjoy working for Lincoln. I have been able to grow my career here. I would recommend working on the Lincoln Financial Network side. There is a lot of opportunity.

    Cons

    I am a remote employee, so the downside to that is not being able to connect with my team fully. We have some communication issues and training in the beginning was also difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Other than more communication, I am very happy where I am.

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

    Pros

    Leadership is supportive and practices hands off management. Regional position in local field office. Great opportunity to learn the ins and outs of case management. Strong financials / solid company. Fantastic benefits. 401k program unmatched anywhere. PTO policy is generous. Great team; I've made many friends here.

    Cons

    If you come in with no experience you may be lost. Lincoln employs experienced, self starters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job managing the company! I enjoy Lincoln and my position!

    Pros

    Superb people. Strong focus on bottom line and viability of business.

    Cons

    Decision making by senior leaders is slow; impacts execution. Everyone is allowed to have an opinion, which is great but impacts decision making.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take educated/calculated risks. Know when to empower "the masses" but also make your decision and stick by it - that is what they are paying you for!

    Pros

    401k contribution and match, career advancement opportunities, tuition assistance, LFG's commitment to the community through the Foundation and being a Green workplace

    Upgrading and updating of all the systems takes time, finding a platform that will house all of the needs of the company may take awhile to complete

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Career Framework is a great tool to utilize when conducting coaching sessions, and writing a job description

    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.

    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.
