    I worked at Nationwide full-time

    Pros

    Decent salary, good benefits and a great place to work if you have kids (if you don't have kids-you'll be expected to pick up the slack).

    Cons

    It's a very old-boys club and you will find that men will grow at s much faster rate--although they have a few cases of promoting women in key roles and they will point to these situations over and over again. It's also a culture that heavily depends on HR and will regularly get bogged down in paperwork for no apparent reason and costly meetings with no purpose. I'd say at least 50 percent of your contact with your manager will including completing HR tasks, which leave little time to focus on your work. This ultimately drives down your HR scores.

    Pros

    They don't like laying off people. They do it as a last resort.
    They are good with promoting work/ life balance.

    Cons

    Salaries and bonuses are low compared to their peers.
    They only offer high deductible plans for health insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Don't ignore opinions from low level employees.
    Negotiate better health insurance policies. The high deductible plans are making people broke especially women and men with families or hope to start families.

    Pros

    Some departments are very flexible with WFH. Work can be very interesting. People are generally nice, feels like home.

    Cons

    Salary increases are low, they are more willing to overpay an externally hired candidate than pay good existing employees more. Internal job changes can be very political, about who you know but that's with most companies. Parking in HQ is expensive, only get subsidized after 5 years with the company. Salary just not competitive relative to the industry.

    Pros

    They benefits are descent and it's in a nice building.

    Cons

    Pay out for incentives sucks. They find reasons not to pay you what you wrote. Quality rules suck. And you don't even sell it's all script that you read from the beginning to the end of the call.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they worked for and not come up with reasons as to why your "behind on processing "
