    I worked at Nationwide

    Pros

    Decent benefits and salary, very good with employee communications with their intranet
    OK if you are in the right department and have the right supervisor
    lots of resources to take advantage of

    Cons

    they took over my previous company and resulted in typical middle management upheaval
    dept cuts not announced , they played the usual 'excuse' card

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    find out what what others think of your direct reports before approving dept salary expense cutbacks
    set achievable goals based on product/pricng/positioning

    Former Employee - Corporate Recruiter in Columbus, OH

    I worked at Nationwide full-time (more than 5 years)

    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.
