    I worked at Nationwide full-time

    Pros

    Decent salary, good benefits and a great place to work if you have kids (if you don't have kids-you'll be expected to pick up the slack).

    Cons

    It's a very old-boys club and you will find that men will grow at s much faster rate--although they have a few cases of promoting women in key roles and they will point to these situations over and over again. It's also a culture that heavily depends on HR and will regularly get bogged down in paperwork for no apparent reason and costly meetings with no purpose. I'd say at least 50 percent of your contact with your manager will including completing HR tasks, which leave little time to focus on your work. This ultimately drives down your HR scores.

    I have been working at Nationwide full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You are allowed to have a life outside of work, a lot of learning opportunities as well. Facilities are top notch. Casual dress is the new policy, also a Con.

    Cons

    People, a good percentage of them, take advantage of the Pro mentioned above, many folks come in late daily and leave early which reduces the amount of work we can get done. There are a lot of excuses and not a lot of accountability.

    Advice to Management

    See the Cons above, time to end the "country club" culture and make it delivery focused. Also believe that going to full-time casual has reduced discipline and sense of urgency for delivery.
