    I have been working at Lincoln Financial Advisors full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place for advisors that are looking for good freedom and a truly open platform. Back office employees are mostly in fort wayne indiana where they have worked for years and the company takes care of them which makes our job easier.

    Cons

    Not a lot of management going on which for me is just fine, but if youre looking to be trained and want more hands on, this is not the place

    Benefits, Training, PTO, Social, Medical

    Cons

    Lots of gossip, passive aggressive employees. Nepotism, They do not honor employment agreements, Expectations to work around the clock. They work you like a dog. They have a revolving door and won't protect you.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your new employees, they might have something to teach you about the management. Pay attention to the burnout of your older employees who are passive aggressive, protecting their future, and sizing up all new employees.

    I have been working at Lincoln Financial Advisors full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The financial advisors are generally very caring people.

    Cons

    The company does not value its administrative personnel. There is no career path available. Frequent budget cuts = added responsibility without added compensation. Morale is low. Compensation is low compared to similar positions with other Fortune 500 companies.

    Advice to Management

    The company would not be as successful as it is without its dedicated administrative workers. However, the admins are not valued or treated as part of the team. Admins are seen as replaceable. Terrible communication between departments results in wasted time, money and resources.

    I worked at Lincoln Financial Advisors part-time

    Pros

    The management truly cares about career development for their partners. Everyone is treated respectfully and there is as much time spent learning about the industry and the business as there is performing your basic tasks. The growth potential is huge.

    Cons

    Without attention to detail you will fail here. The compliance in the Finance industry is bar none and if you can't handle that, you will not be a good fit.
