    Great ethical company

    Compliance (Former Employee) Hartford, CT (US)

    ProsLincoln Financial Group is a smart, ethical company with great culture from top to bottom for serious professionals.

    ConsLincoln does a good job of retaining people. The downside to staff retention is relative difficultly advancing from within. Some people will look for opportunities outside Lincoln and will eventually return at a higher level.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook for ways to increase mobility. Consider reaching across departments to give employees opportunities to develop and build stronger, more well rounded executive candidates.

This company does an amazing job of balancing extrinsic and intrinsic rewards and maintaining a fair and honest culture.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work and continue to involve and support employees and we'll keep growing!

    It's what you make it

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Greensboro, NC (US)

    ProsThis is a sales organization so the focus is on sales. As long as you are in one of the sales divisions you have significant earning and job satisfaction potential. Fantastic 401k match and strong annual bonus potential.

    ConsA little weak in health benefits but they make it up with the 401k. Like every company this size, leadership has some pockets of empty suits.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop hiring only Merrill people.
