I worked at Lincoln Financial Group as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

-Structured; task-oriented assignments
-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 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.

    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    VERY outdated technology.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    The facility is outdated and shabby.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.
