    Pros

    The employees live out their company values and really care about you as a person. The management does a good job pushing your development, but not in an overbearing way.

    Cons

    As with many of the other big companies, there are a lot of changes with the industry. Management seems to want their hand and shift toward micromanaging a bit more.

    Pros

    Benefits Close to zero micromanagement Great people and great place to learn the business Nationwide promotes its employees to different roles, the average associate with 10 years with the company had 3-4 different roles

    Cons

    Company is centralizing roles and it may be a little more competitive.

    Advice to Management

    None . Good Job . Is a great place to work.

    Pros

    Nationwide does an excellent job in branding their products - kudos to the Marketing Team. The corporate culture is light years ahead of the "good ol' boys club" that comprises upper management for most other captive carriers. The training is excellent on the corporate level.

    Cons

    The computer systems could be better integrated and a district marketing budget would go far in establishing a community presence. As it is, each Agent is on their own and most cannot afford to pump unlimited funds into marketing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Great work environment. At the Virginia Operations center you are motivated to work not pressured! It a great place to work.

    Cons

    There are no cons. I moved out of state and wish I had a Nationwide office close enough to go back too. I am hoping to find another company that treats it's employees this well.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. The employees are happy. There is always going to be a "bad" apple everywhere, management included, weed them out and move on.
