Excellent benefits, problematic career mapping

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

Pros

Excellent benefits include their 401k match, HSA medical option, tele-commuting, max contribution to education, really friendly and helpful environment (I've been told it's the nicest place to work from employees coming from other companies), plus annual bonus for non-sales positions.

Cons

Quite low employee turnover so career advancement can be frustrating and high probability of doing 2+ jobs at the same time. No mentoring system in place.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lots of talk about career mapping for years, but never implemented. I also suggest a mentoring and/or internship for current employees, not just for new graduates coming in via LDP.

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

    Pros

    Pay is ok. Hours are good - no weekends. People are generally very nice.

    Cons

    Pay (just ok)
    Micromanagement
    Does not ask for employee opinion often enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen up.
    Don't judge a book by it's cover.
    Cross-locational attempt and current re-org are making your employee's miserable.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    Company is becoming more "corporate". More layers. More red tape.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While culture change is inevitable, let's not forget the values and people that made Lincoln a great company for years.
