    The company has a strong focus on customer service . Good use of technology. Company car. Fortune 100 Company. Security if you are willing to relocate. Average salary. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Unreasonable workload for Field claims. It just isn't possible to complete to work required within a 40 hour work week. If you are single that's ok but if you have a family you won't have much work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    It is very concerning that management does not listen to employees. Survey feedback is discouraged. Employee turnover is so high exit interviews are by email.

    I worked at Nationwide full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The folks in the Scottsdale office are extremely talented and knowledgable, a true joy to work with. The legacy and reputation for the old Scottsdale Insurance brand kept agents engaged for the company's entire history. And the company has the nicest customers ever! I enjoyed being matrixed to the larger Nationwide network, having that clout and expertise as resources.

    Cons

    Corporate is taking over more and more of the company management and slowly squeezing out what made this location's work unique and the gold standard in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the deadwood; folks who have worked there for decades but who do minimal work. Let employees do their jobs and make decisions without a complex hierarchy.
