    Pros

    Nice people, work environment driven by best practices. Good work/life balance. Made great friends there and built strong professional relationships.

    Cons

    Can be political in certain departments. Hiring philosophy can be narrow (need to find people who have done the exact same job before rather than think outside the box about transferable skills). "Nice guy" culture means candid feedback can be tough to come by.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your minds about transferable abilities. Provide management training to new managers.

    I have been working at Nationwide full-time

    Pros

    Interviewers were courteous. Compensation seemed to be fair. Questions were asked off a sheet of paper.

    Cons

    It was hard to hear the interviewers through the conference call, there was more than one which I was not aware of previously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company values should be more visible.

    I worked at Nationwide

    Pros

    Many comments about your experience being dependent on what department you are in......and I completely agree. My experience was great. I felt I had strong leadership and support at my AVP and VP level. The work was challenging and the company was flexible.

    Cons

    A lot of the siloed thinking still exists, but has gotten much better. While IT has done a nice job keeping up with best practices, the business side has not. Roles, salaries, and career paths are dated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break. the. silos.
