Current Employee - Professional (Prefer Not to Say More) in Fort Wayne, IN (US)

I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group full-time (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VERY outdated technology.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The facility is outdated and shabby.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!

    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.
