    Pros

    Fairly good work environment as far as equipment, desk etc in some parts of the company. Other parts of the company forget it. Semi ok health benefits.

    Cons

    Yearly evaluation process (EPMP) is a complete waste of employees time. Day to day employees have to fill out evaluations at end of year, which is supposed to be used for raises etc. Unknown to most employees is that raises and ranking in the system, were already determined months before the reviews are filled out by employees. Nothing the employees fill in is used for increases. Most upper management seems to be out of touch. Average employees will never get promoted based on merit or ability, almost all promotions are done based on the buddy system, which has lead to many people being in positions they are not really qualified to be in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please listen to what day to day employees have to say for a change and try to get some standards in place that can be enforced and not changed for every situation that comes along to the detriment of the company.

    Pros

    flex time - time to job search

    Cons

    no direction - lot at sea

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    simplify and execute - Nationwide is in the process of adopting the GEICO model - they are always following someone - very little innovation - leadership is too underwriting - we need to pick great members and get rid of the bloated sales management, marketing and regional leadership
