    I worked at Nationwide full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the people are nice.

    Cons

    No development work for CS majors, irresponsible upper management, poor compensation package. Development work is sent offshore yet production support remains the responsibility of the 'developers' that did nothing more than go to meetings to delegate the work to contractors. Let them support the apps at 3 in the morning so the 'developers' can rest up for having six hours of meetings the next day.

    Advice to Management

    If you have rcokstar programmers, let them be programmers. How many more are you going to lose because you take away the dev work and give it to contractors and offshore? And not everything needs to be 'agile', most upper management couldn't even explain the concept, but they will try to run all work through a line. If it's all about getting the work done as quickly as possible without regards to a solid design then you can't complain when it goes into production with defects. And when it comes to 'living the values', look around. I have never worked at a company where the value system has been so corrupted by getting results out at any cost.
