I worked at Lincoln Financial Group as an intern for less than a year

Pros

-Regularly scheduled meetings are helpful for feedback
-Open atmosphere; any questions quickly answered by team members

Cons

-Work atmosphere can be loud and unprofessional at times
-Disagreements between employees occasionally divert attention from the task at hand
-Inconsistent level of communication between management and staff
-Interns in various business units (i.e. sales / accounting) do not have opportunities to interact
-No mentor program for interns

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ensure that interns are given a good impression of Lincoln and potentially establish a specific program to keep interns in-house and expose them to business units other than their own.

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

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits package including 401K

    Free continuing education in financial/insurance and tuition reimbursement.

    Fitness center

    Generous amounts of paid time off (especially for me since I have almost 20 years of service)

    Cons

    Understaffed and overworked. My manager should NEVER be allowed to manage people. A lot of bullying micromanagement, manipulation, and profanity. Current manager does not seem to keep confidential personnel information about fellow employees confidential.

    VERY outdated technology.

    The company's multicultural program is manic.

    The facility is outdated and shabby.

    Upper management is either oblivious to the actions of its managers or is deliberately looking the other way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Address the problem of rogue managers. They are a drain on productivity and you are losing valuable hardworking employees because of it.

    I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group full-time

    Pros

    Used to be a nice environment to work for.

    Cons

    If you don't have the background they want, you are screwed. If you only do a great job at work but not chat with senior management on sports during WORK HOURS, you are screwed.

    The "inclusive and diversity" slogan came out only because of the discrimination lawsuit. If you chat with big boss on sports everyday, or if you happen to come from the background that helps them with the lawsuit, you don't need to be capable for your position but will have the most secured job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up! Great employees are leaving, leaving or being left. Where are they moving to? Your competitors!
