    I worked at Nationwide Financial part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company culture to learn and grow.
    Willingness of team members to teach.
    Clear, reasonable expectations.
    Fun, friendly place to be

    Cons

    Since it's a larger, older company, lots of bureaucracy and some out-dated tech remains. Seems like they're shifting to get rid of it, however.

    Pros

    Low level management is relatively good and helpful to find the right position for and connect with employees. There is a great amount of discussion around synergy and employee engagement, including occasional team-building, offsite trips. The company does a good job of training their employees and keeping them up to date with the technology they use.

    Cons

    There is a large disconnect between the employees and upper management. There is a lack of trust between fellow coworkers, leading to rumors. Senior employees don't stick around too long since the company is unwilling to pay a high enough salary for their experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the employee engagement, pay the senior employees enough not to leave the company, and discourage rumors.
