    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good benefits. Clean and comfortable work place. Generally pleasant coworkers.

    Cons

    "Attitude" is valued and rewarded in place of actual skill and experience (as in the willingness to check your brain at the door and pretend to enthusiastically support existing priorities/policies regardless of how flawed and ineffective they may be). A spirit of innovation is generally received as a threat to the status quo, not as an asset.

    Advice to Management

    Solicit ideas from your workers who most closely interact with the customer - then listen to and implement (at least some of) them! These are the employees who frequently best have their fingers on the pulse of what customers need and want.
