    I have been working at Nationwide full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great organization overall that supports its employees at every level and provides opportunities for professional growth and self development. Educational reimbursement is a huge plus!

    Cons

    It's unfortunate that underwriting is being relocated and many employees cannot move with them. The relocation package isn't great, varies by pay band, and there isn't much incentive to move if salaries remain the same but cost of living is drastically higher at the new location. Plus, the workload keeps getting heavier and there are no signs of relief.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the Nationwide culture during transitions and demonstrate "living the values" as the organization combines assets and talent (people) into one brand.
