      Pros

      I have always been so proud to be a Nationwider Loved that various roles I have gotten to play within IT Love the Diversity Inclusion Love sister hood around Women in IT

      Cons

      Silos across IT causes with conflicting priorities Senior leaders are becoming micro managers and no longer trust their teams Non-technical leaders have been promoted into BSA & Director level roles that do not understand Tech. This makes it difficult to gain their support on complex issues or moving technology forward. They don't understand why a technology that is close to 15 years old and has never been upgraded can't do things Like Automation & Self Service. As a result they are not comfortable supporting moving technology forward.

      Pros

      Great motivational atmosphere. The training was phenomenal, and accelerated my customer service experience. It was gratifying solving customers and agent’s problems. A great place to move up in if you’re willing to work hard!

      Cons

      Phone calls can be challenging at times. The callers would not appreciate the effort that one puts into each call.

      Great place to build a career

      Pros

      Large company with most departments feeling like a small town. I’ve developed incredible relationships throughout my tenure and almost everyone is willing to help one another succeed. Focus on social issues and communities is top notch. Great resources and opportunity for open conversations at large and small scale.

      Cons

      Talent management needs a complete overhaul. Senior leadership is trying hard to be progressive which is appreciated but there is still opportunity to be more flexible with less hierarchical red tape. Culture has shifted in the last several years with continuous layoffs and lack of transparency in certain pockets.
