    I have been working at Nationwide full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Due to its size you'll learn and have access to some of the latest software and systems. Your success, growth, and failure is in your control. Some people make it far and others stay where they are at.

    Cons

    Too many and ongoing unnecessary changes in process and workflow improvement mostly because the wrong people get hired into highly technical roles and make decisions they have no technical knowledge about yet have to please the boss.

    Advice to Management

    In my opinion a lot of the changes and continuous improvement made sense when merging Allied and Nationwide but that's over now. Associates rarely do what's right until the management steps their foot down. I would say the management needs to get involved much sooner in order to keep operations running efficiently and prevent necessary restructuring and layoffs later.

    I worked at Nationwide full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There was flexibility with my schedule. The people I worked with became good friends. Doing the right thing for the customers was the most important thing that was considered in the decision making process.

    Cons

    The work environment became increasing toxic. Work load was the biggest factor that no one in management wanted to discuss. The work load was compounded by the increased micromanagement. Both factors made for long work hours including weekends and it was never enough.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the basics. Coverage, investigation, liability and damages. Claims are simple and I used to think that it was insureds and/or claimants that made them complicated but at least for Nationwide, it is their management.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits and great working environment.

    Cons

    As a large corporation Nationwide is not open to using frameworks/languages outside of the typical Oracle/Microsoft stacks. The promotion structure is rigid and does not fit the liquidity of the modern IT industry. Most of the time developers simply leave the company in order to get a promotion, rather than spending years trying to wade through the decades old promotion process.

    Advice to Management

    IT positions need to be exempt from your standard corporate promotion process, or you will continue to suffer from brain drain indefinitely.
