    I worked at Nationwide full-time

    Pros

    Atmosphere is very inclusive and lots of opportunities for self-development and career advancement within a particular discipline.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities to move into other areas of discipline, not because of lack of opportunities, but because of the mindset of some of the leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Continue working towards cross-functional movement (promotion and/or lateral) to retain talent and bring a fresh perspective to various parts of the company.

    I worked at Nationwide full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nationwide is a fabulous company to work for. They offer substantial employee benefits and encourage office moral and interpersonal interactions with the team. Corporate was very helpful and I felt like they honestly cared about me as an employee.

    Cons

    Corporate HR was not well versed in addressing inter-office bullying behaviors and inappropriate interpersonal communications that were taking place in the local office environment. VP's and Managing Attorney had no training or experience managing an office bully who had bullied, threatened and intimidated other support staff before my employment, during my employment or after my employment ended.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to take bullying serious and although HR ensures nothing "illegal" has taken place, feedback and consistent reporting of bullying individuals needs to be addressed better and the removal of the bully needs to be highly considered. Losing several staff members repeatedly should be a clear indication of the person who needs to be removed.

    I have been working at Nationwide full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very pleasant work environment, laid back atmosphere, almost impossible to get fired, new office building.

    Cons

    too much turnover, especially in management. i have had 4 different bosses in the past 12 months. low pay compared to others in industry. difficult to move up, too many lateral job opportunities. cracking down on work from home opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    dont be so stingy with promotions. realize that working from home should be a readily available option, especially for high-performing employees
