    I have been working at Nationwide full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is competitive, you can make a decent salary if you negotiate well in the beginning. Being an adjuster gives you lots of freedom because you set your own schedule, as long as you are organized and get your work done you are golden. If you come prepared with some knowledge, they are willing to train you. Company car with perks.

    Cons

    Overwhelming workload, consistently short staffed, no work/home life balance, highly stressful and demanding. Managers don't manage, they supervise. Nationwide seems to be the grandfather of the insurance world, they are apprehensive about change, and once they are forced to change to adapt to technology, etc. they overhaul everything rapidly, at once and expect nothing less than perfection during the transition. Not very diverse when it comes to gender or race. They don't have their employees best interests at hand. It's nearly impossible to be spontaneous with vacation time and if you leave the company before 5 years, they don't cash out your vacation time or allow you to take it--they absorb it back into the company as if you did not earn it. They are very mechanical and stiff with it comes to their employees interests. It's hard to move around within the company unless you are willing to relocate.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more women and more people of color. Don't be so afraid of technology but allow a learning curve for your employees to catch on. Utilize technology better to streamline your business practices. Allow people to take time off--completely overhaul and revamp the way that vacations are handled. Loosen up, as a company, you look like the stiff and uncomfortable old man of the insurance industry. Don't just act like you are concerned about your employees, really appreciate them and show them--the job is already thankless.
