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

    Pros

    Extremely flexible schedule, not very difficult, over all comp is competitive.

    Cons

    You are penalized for going over goal. You have bonus opportunity but if you beat your goal the company raises your goal (success tax). This creates an effect where if you continually hit your goal you will make less and less money each year because your salary and bonus potential doesn't increase but your goals due. Factor in inflation and rising goals and you will burn yourself out hitting higher an higher goals while making less money. Company doesn't reward experience, pays everyone exactly the same.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to build books of business and to make more money if they make the company more money. If you aren't going to give us annual cost of living increases you have to allow us a way to increase our income and at least keep up with inflation without constantly pulling the rug out from underneath us with ever increasing goals.
