Archaic Culture - Not Collaborative & Poor Employee Placement
Office Employee - Corporate (Former Employee) – Cleveland, Ohio – January 4, 2015
The company has a bonus system in place, which is a big part of your earnings. At the end of the year, your boss initially gives you your bonus points & then it's up to his boss to fight for your points with upper management. By the time you get paid, you could get a completely different number of points, which could affect your pay by thousands of dollars.
This bonus system creates a very competitive environment, where there's no accountability b/c people don't want to lose points. Also, (from what I understand) it's competitive b/c each department gets so many points to distribute with each team member. There is little collaboration & everyone seems to be out for themselves.
Additionally, the technology is not up-to-date. They don't have many systems in place to help you get your job done effectively. When I was there, they were VERY behind in this area.
Because they don't layoff employees who've been there for 3 years & up, they move people around in positions they are not qualified for. This is very frustrating b/c often times you're working with someone that has little knowledge of best practices in the area they work in. For the majority of my time at Lincoln, I felt like I was badly managed & under valued.
