Other Employee Reviews for Nationwide

  1. Nationwide at a cross-road.

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Career Opportunities
    • Comp & Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Columbus, OH
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Columbus, OH
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Fundamentally sound company with fair wages and benefits. We have integrity, and try to do the right thing for the right reasons. As a mutual company, we are not subject to pressure to perform from shareholders.

    Cons

    Currently, there does not appear to be a clear plan to see us through the lack of effective sales distribution, nor a clear vision for our organization structure. Senior Leaders on the PCC seem to spend time at odds with each other. We are a mutual company, yet trying to act like a stock company, yet not compensating individuals at the higher rate of a stock company.

    Advice to Management

    A clear, yet wrong, direction would be an improvement to the current situation. At leadt then we would be moving forward and able to realize it is the wrong direction, and make changes. Instead, we appear to be spending great effort, yet not accomplishing anything.


  2. Change comes at you fast

    Current Employee - Personal Lines Representative in Harrisburg, PA
    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    In general, the people who work for the company are great people- fun and caring. Pay is decent.

    Cons

    Total benefit package is not great and getting worse as the company further cuts the health insurance options it provides its employees. Morale is very low company-wide; the company is consolidating some functions resulting in lost jobs in certain areas. Bureaucracy is ingrained in the corporate culture. Many levels of management means even the smallest changes don't get completed. The computer system the employees use is ancient (DOS-based).

    Advice to Management

    Keep ahead of industry trends. True leadership knows what is coming and makes changes before the economy downturns or the market goes soft. "When you fail to plan, you plan to fail."
