Great company and culture, if you don't mind the long hours for little pay.
Customer Representative (Current Employee) –  United KingdomApril 22, 2016
The management, colleagues, and overall culture, plus career advancement opportunities, make Nationwide a brilliant place to work. The managers are very much "on the level" of their team(s), so you can chat to them as equals and feel genuinely supported.
The pension scheme is one of the best in the country, and there are also schemes to convert pay into extra holiday, etc, so the benefits are good. There are also branch and area level incentives run throughout the year that provide additional benefits.
However, about an hour of overtime is expected of employees every day (pre-opening admin and post-closing admin) unpaid - and if something goes wrong, this can extend to 2 or 3 hours.
The yearly salary is very low compared to other high street banks and building societies, some of whom work fewer hours, or also receive fully-paid overtime.
Pros
No Sunday or Bank Holiday hours; Structured training & development schemes
Cons
Low salary; long hours; daily unpaid overtime

Financial Planning Manager (Former Employee) –  scotlandFebruary 5, 2015
work life balance isn't great there is an expectation that you will complete work in your own time. The overall firm is good to work for but they make financial planning harder work than they need to.
Pros
good team spirt in branch
Cons
no one really understands the role reqirements except your peer group

Customer Service Consultant (Former Employee) –  Pegasus HouseMay 21, 2013
By far the best company I have worked for. From the moment of inception to the moment I left, management and co-workers were friendly and yet driven to achieving results. I learnt a lot from working for Nationwide, such as the importance of maintaining a balance between meeting targets and fun. Hard work was always acknowledged by senior members of staff and pecuniary rewards exceeded my expectations. As the end of the month approached and deadlines had to be met, the environment, as is to be expected, was often taut but motivational initiatives helped fuel the flock through stormy times. Wonderful people and a great company to work for.
Pros
Pay, benefits, management, atmosphere and ethos
Cons
Parking
