    Pros

    Leadership is supportive and practices hands off management. Regional position in local field office. Great opportunity to learn the ins and outs of case management. Strong financials / solid company. Fantastic benefits. 401k program unmatched anywhere. PTO policy is generous. Great team; I've made many friends here.

    Cons

    If you come in with no experience you may be lost. Lincoln employs experienced, self starters.

    Great job managing the company! I enjoy Lincoln and my position!

    I have been working at Lincoln Financial Group

    Pros

    I enjoy working for Lincoln. I have been able to grow my career here. I would recommend working on the Lincoln Financial Network side. There is a lot of opportunity.

    Cons

    I am a remote employee, so the downside to that is not being able to connect with my team fully. We have some communication issues and training in the beginning was also difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Other than more communication, I am very happy where I am.

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

    Pros

    I like my position that I hold with in the company. There are a lot of opportunities for advancement or even relocating. The work environment is positive and I love my coworkers. The training here was very good considering some of the other companies I have worked for. Benefits are also amazing! The pay is very competitive as well.

    Cons

    Trying to get time off the day before or after a holiday is near impossible. Even is you request it months in advance it doesn't matter because by policy they will draw names. In my department we have almost 30 people and only 2 people are allowed off on a given day. Other companies I have worked for are much more lenient with this issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with people on getting time off around the holidays.

    Create a way for Benefit Counselors to work more hours and get more recognition for the work they do.
