    Pros

    Great benefits and great working environment.

    Cons

    As a large corporation Nationwide is not open to using frameworks/languages outside of the typical Oracle/Microsoft stacks. The promotion structure is rigid and does not fit the liquidity of the modern IT industry. Most of the time developers simply leave the company in order to get a promotion, rather than spending years trying to wade through the decades old promotion process.

    Advice to Management

    IT positions need to be exempt from your standard corporate promotion process, or you will continue to suffer from brain drain indefinitely.

    Pros

    Pay
    Technology
    Coaching tools

    Cons

    Hard to move up
    Having your own opinion will get you shunned

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to get people to follow a pipeline of promoting. Different opinions should matter. It's like they groom people you to promote or become leaders, when everyone should be different and have their own opinions.

    Pros

    Good people, good energy, good work-life balance. They promote from within and want to see people succeed long-term.

    Cons

    Very corporate environment and sometimes felt like rules were there only for rules' sake. Not encouraged to think outside of the box.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the ideas of your employees. Don't be afraid of change.

    Pros

    The best part of working at Nationwide would have to be the atmosphere and the people. The company was always upbeat.

    Cons

    I wish we would've had more fun outings as a company. Sometimes that helps boost morale for everyone. I also hoped our dress code would be more lenient.

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

    Pros

    For the most part, the people I work with are super nice, great people. The company values life and family outside of work, which is amazing. You're also surrounded by people who have never worked anywhere else (for better or worse), which can feel suffocating at times. They call it the golden handcuffs- it's an amazing place to work, and eventually, you feel trapped and like you can't leave- which, to some, is a good thing.

    Cons

    Like any large company, there's politics to navigate and long/slow processes that come with having thousands of employees who work for one company. Coming from small, scrappy companies in the past, I get frustrated by the people who don't work too hard/have learned to do minimum to get by (which is easier at large companies).

    Advice to Management

    More opportunities to interface with high level leadership would be awesome.

    I worked at Nationwide full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, decent salary, locations across the country with opportunity for promotion.

    Cons

    Claims adjusters are over worked and underpaid and any personal illness or family issue is not something they care about.
