    I worked at Nationwide full-time

    Pros

    Some insanely smart and great to work with people in the investments, risk management, and strategy divisions.

    9-4:30pm culture in most other departments. Excellent for work life balance or raising a family.

    Cons

    Giant fortune 100 company. Lots of bureaucracy. Like most companies, 80%+ of works is repetitive. Hard to innovate at a giant corporation with 5 stakeholders across 3 departments needed to sign off and get a button approved on an app (exaggerating obviously but you get the point). When I left in 2013 I felt like alot of jobs/departments were semi-duplicative, hopefully they fixed it with their re-org.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be market competitive on salaries to retain lower level analytical talent.

    Keep cutting costs and working saving the policyholder money under your unique policyholder centric corporate governance.

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

    Pros

    Nationwide is a great company to work for. They provide extensive training, along with supervisors and mentors who want to see you succeed. The work environment is very welcoming and it's not hard to find a smiling face as you walk down the halls. Nationwide genuinely cares about their employees and their families. They are also big believers of promoting from within. This is a great company with a lot of room for growth and opportunity.

    Cons

    I honestly have no complaints. The only thing I would change would be to have more flexibility with scheduling shifts.

    Advice to Management

    You're doing a great job, please don't change!

    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.
