    Great monthly bonus structure for high producers.

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

    Pros

    It a flexible place to work. The leaders tend to promote a healthy work-life balance. In IT there is plenty of opportunities to grow and learn if you decide to act on them.

    Cons

    As with most large enterprises, there is plenty of politics. That can get frustrating. Also insurance companies tend to move slowly.

    Pros

    Great place to get started and get your foot in the door to an industry.

    Excellent benefits, excellent.

    They give you ample opportunity to grow but there is a caveat to that (see cons)

    Cons

    Too much pressure on adding letters to the end of your email signature. Stress the importance of getting and maintaining a designation that is rarely ever used, except to get promoted.
