    The culture is phenomenal and there is a true focus on protecting what matters most to our members. The pay is competitive and the perks are many.

    Nationwide is a big ship to turn and with quick changes in the industry, Nationwide is struggling to find the right strategy.

    Pros

    Care about their employees. Flexible work environment. My leadership team was outstanding while I was there. It’s nice having leaders who speak up and not always willing to walk the corporate party line.

    Cons

    I think the base salary was on the lighter side considering the amount of responsibilities of the role. I would start comparing the salaries to competitors. I feel from uw to Sales you’re underpaying top talent.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make sure the right folks are in leadership positions. My time in Florida was terrific and we had a great team and positive morale.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance
    Fair pay
    This company truly does care about their employees

    Cons

    I really can't think of any. There is a bit of red tape you will need to cut through from time to time when trying to complete tasks

    Pros

    1. Development opportunities for hard workers
    2. Most of the supervisors are great and willing to help you move forward
    3. Opportunity to move up is available if you want it bad enough

    Cons

    1. Upper management is out of tune with their workforce
    2. Flexibility in schedule is only done for those they like
    3. P&C has EXTREMELY poor leadership and direction

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your young leadership coming up and stop thinking when you take a AVP role that you have to completely change everything in order to create efficiency. Stick with a strategy for more then 6 months in order to see if it can be successful. Stop cutting to the bone and then finding out that you don't have enough people to do the workload. This means that you will actually have to get to know your leadership to better understand their environment before you make those decisions.

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

    Pros

    Decent salary, 401k match, some pretty good perks with corporate discounts. Company does provide a good amount of resources financially to grow your knowledge.

    Cons

    Large overhead spent on pointless leadership positions. Never seen a company work someone with endless tasks. Management never owns up to try and streamline. It’s the ‘yes sir’ company. Lack of communication from all leadership. And now the layoffs because of the large salaries of leadership, which has created an adverse work environment for the ‘worker bees’.

    HR is useless in protecting anyone but themselves.

    Endless spending on marketing versus fixing the broken glitches in systems which would actually save them more money than cutting people. They’d rather just outsource everything (and they have in droves), instead of building a stable, productive, and fun work environment.

    This is just a small taste...toxic environment is spreading and will ultimately be a big negative on a lot of people. Watch out if you join ‘The Nation’.

    Advice to Management

    You’ve lost touch with what made the company successful. Instead you’re slashing jobs because you think that’s the answer. You’ve allowed broken systems to take hold and a terrible brotherhood of placing ‘not my job’ leaders who take no ownership for making things work properly and they also fail to communicate at all across the silos of departments. You’re legacy is in the hands of some poor leaders and inundated with a mass of people who just delegate so they don’t have to do anything.
