Productive and Good Place to Work
Senior Case Administrator (Former Employee) –  Dublin, OHMarch 5, 2016
A Good start by getting in some breakfast before work hours, then sign in, set up the days tasks, check in with co-workers. Opportunity to work from home.
Most of the day production and working with all contact areas to train, communicate and process work. Helping others always rewarding.
Learned the majority of all tasks and skills through the steps of life insurance processing. Working with all different types of people and management styles. Always something to learn and learning from some of the best co-workers and management over the years. Hardest part of the job was helping co-workers get through adjustments in software/hardware and changes in workload and restructuring.
Most enjoyable was when team's from different area's would participate in contest's for pizza parties, time off, or special lunches while accomplishing some very good goals.
Pros
Free lunches, helping charities, celebrating co-worker events.
Cons
Sometimes very long hours, computer problems that prevent work getting done.

Intern (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OHFebruary 14, 2016
Nationwide is a great company to work for, and it shows just by speaking to each associate. Almost everyone I have spoken with has been with the company 5+ years. It is an engaging atmosphere with a company that really shows they care for their associates

Untapped Potential
Regional Internal Coordinator (Current Employee) –  DublinMay 27, 2015
Excellent moral company. Excellent products priced poorly. Middle and Junior Management not focused on sales or bottom line - focused on process and coached to a process, not a sale. Process is frequently preached as more important than closing business which frustrates many on the sales desk.
Pros
Excellent corporate morality
Cons
Not focused the bottom line.

Great place to work/they always try to incorporate team building events
Sr. Analyst Account Change (Current Employee) –  Columbus, OHFebruary 2, 2015
I have been with Nationwide Financial for 34 years. This is a great place to work. Great place to work. Plenty of room for advancement if you choose that path. The part that makes me happy at the end of the day is knowing that I was able to help at least one external customer and make that person feel like part of the Nationwide neighborhood.
Pros
free parking/flex time
Cons
not sure/ i love it here

My first experience with a big company
Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee) –  Newark, DEJanuary 14, 2015
I liked working for Nationwide and the daily contact with customers and being able to solve their issues.
I did expect more job security. The company closed their Delaware location and moved back to Columbus Ohio and left about 500 people out of work in 2008 which was the start of a great recession. It took me 18 months before I found another job.
Pros
good experience in customer service
Cons
turned out to not have any real job security

Nationwide is an engaged company where the objective is to groom its employees for growth and advancement. Management coaches you to grow, and you learn to coach new employees to grow. Add in the team and company wide outings, the community involvement, and the opportunity to learn how to brand yourself, and you've got no choice but to succeed.

Quality Assurance Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Columbus, ohioJanuary 14, 2014
An average work day consists of a daily group meeting with our team lead/manager to discuss any new processing procedures put in place to help us be more efficient. After that we would then begin our work day which consisted of reviewing and auditing work, and providing feedback for employee errors. My co-workers were positive and upbeat and always willing to leand a helping hand if needed.
Pros
buliding and maintianing relationship with co-workers
Cons
processing tasks according to inefficient procedures
