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 worked at Lincoln Financial Group full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you are in Radnor, there is plenty of opportunity for growth on a corporate level. Not so much in other locations.

    Cons

    Change is a constant. They've tried every management structure/tier system in the book....and still haven't found the right way to lead. There's a lot of talk of employee engagement....the net result of which was town hall meetings with the CEO and logo pens for all employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do something - the same thing - for more than a year and see if it works before changing it.

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

    I worked at Lincoln Financial Group full-time (more than an 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.
