    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.

    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.

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

    Advice to Management

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