    Pros

    The benefits and rates charged to employees are the only pro of working at Nationwide. While these are far from outstanding and need a lot of work they are still a pro. I really wish Nationwide was "on the side" of their employees.

    Cons

    Biggest opportunity is in leadership - promotions are based on who you know, who gives out gifts to others - favoritism all over the place. People are not promoted for what they know or have done in their careers. Just take a look of those leaders on LinkedIn who are former nationwide leaders - they left for a reason versus being asked to leave....many great leaders left because they saw the writing on the wall.

    Politics and favoritism run throughout the organization even within HR, very disappointing to someone who is leading and truly cares about people. If you care about people and trying to make a difference this is not the place for you. Comp is not good compared to other companies just look around.

    If you want to work on cool, innovative work they you should skip Nationwide - very, very corporate and old school - not in a cool, hip way either. And really NW - get into the 90's at least - the same employee dress code has been in place in from the 1980's. People want to come as they are - they are adults, treat them this way and catch up with the "good" and "great" cultures of other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find some real leaders.....those that want to lead and know what the word "leadership" really means. Current leaders drive through fear, favoritisim. And it's not a great thing that so many leaders have stayed for so long. These leaders do not welcome change or new ideas - they kill innovation. Culture needs to come into the 1990's at least - start with the dress code policy and throw it away.

    Pros

    Treats employees incredibly well; offers a wealth of opportunities and career paths; really encourages employees to pursue the area of practice that interests you most; nice on site gym; really supports and promotes healthy living for all associates

    Cons

    No significant cons behind those common at any workplace; though most coworkers are great, there are bound to be some you don't appreciate; parking is bar far the biggest con... but that will likely be the case in most larger cities; student program could be a little more competitive as well
