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

    Pros

    Nationwide is a great company to work for. The benefits package is the best I have seen. The workload is manageable. You have a lot of tenured people and there is always someone with a wealth of knowledge to answer any questions that you might have. You can gain experience in cross training and it is a great first job out of school.

    Cons

    Only downside is there is very little room to grow. Once you are an adjuster- it is near impossible to become a manager. It takes at least a decade of experience to move higher up. You can make smaller moves laterally but as far as management goes, that is a tough challenge. Another con is the raises are not great. They are minimal at best. The goal sharing makes up for this a little bit. The salary isn't great but again its a good first job out of college.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees because at the end of the day- they are the ones making you look good.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule (in IT), great team members.

    Cons

    Managers change about every 1-2 years - so new directives, expectations, etc. which make it very difficult to make any progress in improvements to the area. It seems we re-invent the wheel every couple of years.

    Reorgs occur very often.
