    I worked at Nationwide

    Pros

    Pay wasn't bad. Facilities were great.

    Cons

    Was required to be a very pushy sales person over the phone to meet quotas. This was especially hard in certain states were the company wasn't competitive. Management didn't seem to care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees.

    I have been working at Nationwide full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The employees are very helpful and will support you in case of problems. Also the company reimburses upto $5000 for education. Its a good company to start a career.

    Cons

    Nationwide's benefits still have a long way to go. For example, they have one option for health insurance which has a very high deductible. The pay and bonuses also need work in order to match the competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the employees have more health plans to choose from, improve on the bonus and salary. Nationwide employees are very dedicated and would love to know that the company appreciates them. Consider matching the competition on bonuses and salary.

    Pros

    Company vehicle, good culture and company values, time-off policies, career development

    Cons

    Compensation, high volume of work, work-life balance, management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a sufficient number of associates to handle the extremely high claim volume. Lots of room for improvement when it comes to initial training and acclimation of the job.

    Pros

    It's great working here if you like flexibility and the freedom to be your own boss.

    Cons

    It's hard to keep customers when the company is constantly increasing rates at every renewal period. Lately we have not been competitive. Several companies are beating us on price.

    Pros

    Most of the people are great and the work environment is less cut-throat than others I've worked in.

    Cons

    The pace at Nationwide is super slow. Things take twice as long to accomplish here that they do at other companies. Also, you must get consensus from lots of people or risk getting your projects stopped.
