    I worked at Lincoln Financial Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Serving the client first still rings true for the better employees. Company is truly a good corporate neighbor and employees are out helping others on a daily basis. Tuition reimbursement, possible bonus each March, decent facilities depending on location, Fortune 200 employer. Philadelphia Eagles affiliation, if a fan. This is a large company with offices all over the country, so you could almost work anywhere, depending on your position. Insurance, Retirement Plan, and Annuity divisions create wide-ranging opportunities. Attention to operating expenses has created a long history of financial stability. Technology has been upgraded the last few years. A great place to start.

    Cons

    Management trainees/interns are expected to take over, if hired, so actually advancing beyond where you started is difficult, if you're not one. Diversity is a double-edged sword, it's nice to see, but more conventional employees may have to be superstars to have a chance to advance. Everything is measured and even ridiculous goals are expected to be met, with only the rare exception. The company culture is mentioned a lot, but there have been so many outside hires from competitors in middle management, I'm not sure it has survived. Growth is dependent upon solid stock market performance and a low rate of insurance claims. Generally known for high expenses in a very competitive market trending toward low expenses. Goodwill only gets you so far today. Aging clients. Some decisions related to cost containment or meeting federal regulations can be very cold and made without regard to how it will affect existing clients. Work/Life balance varies with the position.

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

    Pros

    Competitive benefits. All of the managers I have worked with have been really good. It feels like they really care about my career advancement. I have had nothing but the most supportive experiences with my direct managers.

    Cons

    VP level management is old and very old school. Honestly feels like they are holding back some of the great managers they have working for them. Not all of the VPs are bad, but the ones that have been with the company forever don't like progress.
