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

Pros

Training program geared to get you out in the field, quickly, if you put in the work. This is a relationship business, so you have to have those relationships inside the office before they will trust you outside of it. That being said, I have had several opportunities to meet with upper management and they really care about developing their talent.

Cons

You get out what you put in, which can lead to different levels of satisfaction if you are looking at this more as a job than a career. You really have to put in the time to develop relationships with the managers above you so they have a better idea of who you are before they are looking to hire.

    Former Employee - EQRM in Philadelphia, PA (US)
    Former Employee - EQRM in Philadelphia, PA (US)

    I worked at Lincoln Financial Group full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Exposure to financial modeling, actuarial modeling and equity risk hedging. Excellent center city Philadelphia location convenient for driving or mass transit. Good working environment and office camaraderie. Mostly young office with many hardworking goal oriented people. Support for career development including educational reimbursement or time off while studying for professional certs

    Cons

    Can be a high pressure environment especially during periods of market volatility. Cultural fit is important and will work against you if you don't conform. Complicated financial models are stored in excel spreadsheets and emailed around with no concept of version control. Salaries are not competitive with financial services firms in NYC but are competitive for the Philly labor market.

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

    Pros

    The pay is fair, though arguably lower than competition. Teams can be friendly, pretty talented workers, and respectable work/life balance and benefits. Stable company, as well, but a bit too complacent.

    Cons

    Extremely, extremely political. Expect to be shoved around by management and HR. You have to "fit" or you will not last. Double-standards across colleagues depending on if they like you or not, regardless of your work. Furthermore, technology is outdated, and the corporate office is far too corporate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are genuinely not happy, you will hear horror stories and politics, but people know HR is out to get them. Take a second look at equitable treatment, and this is coming from a current employee.
