    Pros

    Nationwide not only values their members, the also highly value their employees. I came from the public sector after 9 years and was worried about the work pace of the private sector. They not only support a work/life balance they also support the health and wellness of each employee. Fabulous place to work.

    Cons

    I can't think of even one con about Nationwide. It's a new home away from home for me and there is no doubt in my mind that I will likely retire from this agency.

    Advice to Management

    No advice, just a very big thank you. You've created a wonderful workplace culture of caring, passionate individuals. I look forward to each day working here at Nationwide.

    Advice to Management

    I would be ending my summer internship at Nationwide with mixed reviews. On one hand I got to work with an amazing team in some pretty good areas on the other hand there was no planning related to assignments and expected deliverable at the end of the internship.
