A day at work
Financial Service Analyst (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OHMarch 23, 2017
Work was simple and only heavy around certain times of the year. I worked for the company for 11 years, and took on different types of task. There were times it was a lot of fun and a lot of engagement.

Friendly atmosphere, great people to work with and good systems to support the work. Measurement expectations are attainable but seems to be more metric driven than quality of work.

It was in the Investment Life Department. I really loved the benefits. Haven't had any better. I would love to be back working for them. The job was very stressful at times though. It was very upbeat and you had to deal with a lot of irate people.

One Nationwide
Internal Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Columbus, OHAugust 10, 2016
Nationwide Financial is a wonderful company. It has brought me so much knowledge and understanding to working in corporate America. I was fortunate to get a job right out of college with them and am forever grateful.

Internal Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Columbus, OHAugust 10, 2016
Nationwide Financial was a wonderful entry level job to start with right outside of college. It is an amazing company with a great culture. I have learned how to deal with brokers and client all over the world, make sales through knowledge and preparation and most importantly to work for a fortune 100 company. My lack of interest in finance is why I am seeking other employment.

Ok place to work at
Associate (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OHJune 26, 2016
salary is a bit low for what is expected. Management doesn't seem to be in sink with employees. Causes anger from many employees. it is a call center type environment. Not much opportunity to move up.

Horrible work life balance
Financial Services Analyst (Current Employee) –  Columbus, OHJune 20, 2016
Late hours sometimes had to stay at work until 10-11pm at night. Requested earlier hours for 3 years and was passed up on several occasions for New hires. Had vacations scheduled and approved 6 months in advance that had to be canceled because time off was overbooked by the manager. The main push was for same day standards and no one seemed to care about quality or improvement of process. Constantly reorganizing the business and moving people into new jobs.
Pros
Peers are very good people and most are extremely dedicated to quality work.
Cons
ZERO work life balance

It is really hard to get hired on through Nationwide permanently, however, when hired on you'll have access to all of the best things a company could ever offer.

Good workplace with excellent management
Financial Services Support Representative (Current Employee) –  Columbus, OHApril 14, 2016
Overall a great place to work with attentive managers and emphasis on employee development. Some difficulty in finding positions to move up to depending on what pay band you are currently in (there's a gulf with too few positions within the company at a certain level that makes it hard to move up to the plentiful roles a few bands up).

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

All though the company is no longer in business, it was a very relaxed place to work at. Employees received daily motivation with things like gas cards or a free lunch for the day.

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.
