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

    Pros

    In general, Nationwide has a great culture and a focus around valuing the diversity of talents and abilities each person brings to the table. Benefits and compensation are very competitive.

    Cons

    My experience has been that the work/life balance becomes more difficult to manage as you move up into roles of increased responsibility. This is universally true regardless of employer and industry, and Nationwide is not an exception to this general rule.

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

    Pros

    Nationwide is a decent company with a moral compass, which not all companies can say. They do a fairly good job of making associates feel treated like a human being. They also still provide a pension plan and nice company perks.

    Cons

    Merit increases and incentive structures do not motivate individuals towards achievement. They are small enough to really be quite insignificant.

    The area I work in is not conducive to collaboration. My manager is great, but it is really hard to change such a large organization. Being someone who has not spent my whole career there, I am not valued like other associates of similar capabilities.

    Being in an office outside of the corporate headquarters, I am not really sure that I have the potential career growth opportunities that I desire long term... especially when that means potentially working in a different part of the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Consider what you want the long term careers to look like in offices outside of Columbus, OH. It would seem like difficult to fill positions could benefit from viewing your other offices as opportunities rather than filters.

    I worked at Nationwide full-time

    Pros

    Awesome culture, great people to work with, Fortune 100 consistently and ranked as a great place to work

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for growth in the Marketing department depending on where you start at and what you're interested in. Ballooned at the director and Sr. Manager level.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to attract, retain and GROW young talent.
