    I have been working at Nationwide full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nationwide provides nice benefits at a reasonable price. Additionally, the company provides very stable work for their full time employees.

    Cons

    Company is excessively Columbus, Ohio centric. If you want any chance at growth, you'll need to move there.
    For a company that calls itself Nationwide, its view is entirely too limited.

    laptops

    Cons

    Working for this company was okay for my first week of employment. After that i was placed on mandatory overtime for the entire time I worked for this company. Some have worked here for 7 plus years and have stated they have been on mandatory overtime (10plus hours) since they started as well. Nationwide decided to close down all non standard locations and told us one week before Christmas we will be without a job. Merry Christmas to us! Management is beyond shady and find any reason to put you on an action plan to fire you if you challenge them in any kind of way (like questionable their management skills) Management has no idea how to do the work, but is so numbers driven quality doesn't matter and its ridiculous. The employees aren't very friendly but I understand since we are not allowed to talk to each other during our work day, we are confined to our desks.

    Advice to Management

    Have less meetings about dumb stuff and learn how to do the work so your employees don't have to spend their life working mandatory overtime.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Worked at pet insurance subsidiary. It was great before Nationwide took over all operations.

    Cons

    Once Nationwide took over VPI Pet Insurance, they slashed benefits and made pets priority zero. Also, Denver office in particular a toxic and backstabbing environment.

    Advice to Management

    Apply same rules to everyone. Don't allow some employees to cheat and then hold employees who follow the rules accountable for not cheating.

    I worked at Nationwide (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The trainer was a great guy and the facility was brand new state of the art.

    Cons

    The computer system was prehistoric for such a huge co.and the payout commission was aplorable you had to use your own time to "fish" for policies that were never credited to you.Horrible experience.

    Advice to Management

    Update and streamline your comp.system .....you shouldnt be expected to learn 5 different systems and be expected to hit quotas in your first 6 mo. Of employment.
