Sales (Former Employee), Radnor, PAMarch 11, 2014
Pros: team environment
Cons: heavy workload for low pay
Management is only interested in helping to advance the careers of employees that are deemed "favorites" that are identified very early on. Unprofessional environment with a lot of inappropriate workplace attire and behavior. Compensation varies widely from year to year. Not much diversity in the workforce. Most of the people that work there were hired – more... because they either know or are related to somebody in management. – less

Please Heed The Warnings That I Should Have
Benefit Specialist (Current Employee), Atlanta, GAFebruary 26, 2014
Pros: steady paycheck
Cons: everything else
Let me start by saying that I am not a disgruntled employee. In fact, I've done pretty well here so far; however, my success is certainly despite many things. First of all..management is a complete mess. Every week it is a new rule, focus, etc and management changes like the wind. There are some pretty clueless managers..mine hasn't even bothered to – more... learn our systems, for example. There is definitely a lot of favoritism and I can honestly say that I've been the beneficiary of some. This company wants to be awesome but it is stuck in the stone ages (for example, they are just not even thinking about starting a pilot work from home program). Everything you learn in training regarding schedules is shot to hell once you get on the floor. Just please keep looking. – less

Hare Chevrolet was an awesome place to work for and still is today for some of my friends.
New Business Underwriter (Former Employee), Fort, DRJanuary 15, 2014
Hare Chevrolet was a fantastic place to work at and is a booming business today as well. When I worked at Hare Chevrolet it was family owned and ran, it was also a fantastic place to work for as well.

Takeover analyst (Current Employee), Fort Wayne, inJanuary 5, 2014
Pros: 401k, vacation time
Cons: management
Lincoln used to be a wonderful company to work for, this is not the case now. The worst people are promoted, most of the time they neither have management experience or a degree. Most employees who are promoted to management are mediocre at best at their current jobs. Once they are promoted they get rid of those who are excellent performers so that – more... they don't look so bad. It's a rare that you would get far here from working hard. They could care less if you are a parent and want to spend time with your family. It's always work first and everything else whenever. They have also purchased a new computer system for the retirement division that is $33 million and it's a complete disaster. It's very sad to see a great company fail so epically! – less

Cons: point system in place if you were tardy or absent

Incompetence will take you far here.
Customer Service (Former Employee), Greensboro, NCDecember 21, 2013
Pros: it's a living.
Cons: people have no value and basic safety issues.
I'm pretty sure got my job as a settlement to a lawsuit. After almost a year, I understand why (there will probably be more). The woman who hired me actually requested a demotion, and the woman who replaced her appears to be a drug addict. It boggles the mind to see how far this place will sink to save a buck. I've had to deal with toxic fumes, received – more... electrical shocks, even been trapped in an elevator. And every time these issues are reported, management is always dismissive.

The company's culture has been built around usury. – less

Web Support (Former Employee), Greensboro, NCDecember 16, 2013
Pros: good vacation package
Cons: everything else
Management does not want to be bothered with everyday employees. They will terminate you if you're about to go from STD to LTD even though you have paid the premium for years. No regard for employee or doctor's notes. Harassed every week for documentation while trying to recover from surgery. Poor HR Dept in Greensboro NC office. Each dept is treated – more... like its own company within a company which at times is not good especially at holiday time or inclement weather decisions. They do not care what their employees go through as long as the doors are kept open. They present themselves as family oriented but they are really not. If you are not in the "click" you will not advance. Their employee assessment policy is a real joke. Your manager's boss is in another state however, the employees who work for her on a daily basis are never interviewed for their input on her as a manager. If you like to party you will do well at Lincoln. Another disappointment was when the company set aside time to celebrate certain ethnic groups or lifestyle groups but no celebration of Caucasians. – less

Temp (Current Employee), AtlantaDecember 6, 2013
Pros: sometimes management have meetings leaving the staff free to complete their work
Cons: the meetings end.
Trust, loyalty, commitment to staff development and competent leadership. If Lincoln had just one of these attributes it would be a tolerable place to work.
Management are terrifyingly ill educated and have little or no critical thinking skills.
The culture is divisive and staff have no confidence in the leadership.
Could be a great place to work as – more... the staff are friendly and hard working but middle and senior management are poor and are more of a hindrance than an aide. – less

Culture varies by deparment
Head of Data Analytics (Former Employee), Radnor, PANovember 21, 2013
Pros: benefits, opportunity to expand skill sets
Cons: no unifying culture, managers not always trained in management
Lincoln's culture re career stability/advancement, culture and work/life balance vary wildly, depending solely on the leading manager of each department. However, the benefits are very good: Health care with HSA option, dental, vision, life insurance, excellent matching of 401k, tuition reimbursement (requires manager approval however, which is sometimes – more... difficult to get), charitable matching, annual bonus, and community volunteer events. I've been in departments that had poor morale and departments where everyone worked together and was excited to show up in the morning. Thus the 3 star overall review. – less

Fast paced job with a lot of customer interaction
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee), Lincoln, NENovember 13, 2013
On average, I would answer 25 calls a day from policy holders or the beneficiaries of policies. I learned what was required to pay out life insurance policies, and many new computer programs such as Excel, and Lifesys.The most enjoyable part of the job was the people I worked with and the customer interaction. I also loved being able to learn so many – more... new things. – less

Great company, benefits-wise; not so great leadership
Finance (Former Employee), GreensboroSeptember 10, 2013
Since merger with JP Corporation (down in Greensboro, NC), company culture has changed significantly. Used to be a great company to work for, but unless member of the good old boy club, forget about job growth or advancement, got your work cut out for you. Quite surprised to see certain (quite incompetent) leaders still in place, just a matter of time.

Terrible training procedures
Temp (Former Employee), Greensboro NCAugust 28, 2013
I was so excited to start working here and thought there might be a future for me with this company. However, the training is TERRIBLE and favorites are picked early on.They do not train for a long enough period of time, and then they throw you to the wolves and get mad when you ask questions to ensure you are doing your work correctly! Very unprofessional. – more... My training teacher had terrible grammar and misspelled countless words on the training guides! She may have been knowledgeable when it came to training life insurance, but she was terrible in the grammar department. The company should be embarrassed to have her represent them! They also expected way too much to be done in a workday, and would not let you stay late to finish since it would lead to overtime. Very disappointed with this company. No wonder they have so many temps come and go with not many permanent employees. Watch out for racial profiling as well... – less
