I'm thinking about applying for an IT job at 1 Nationwide Plaza and my biggest concern is corporate culture. I once worked for a large bank in downtown Cleveland and I left after only 83 days because sitting in meetings, etc. I realized that nobody cared. Nobody cared about the direction the company was going, nobody cared about the job they were in and the only thing people really seemed to care about was leaving the office desolate at 4:01pm. I'm concerned that being a downtown job, Nationwide might be similar.
The recruiter has assured me it's the best environment he's seen in all of Columbus but what that means to one person might be different for another.
Please, if you've spent time at 1 Nationwide, please let me know your honest expierences. I want a place I can work with the business to deliver the best technology solutions to their business problems. I want a place I can wake up excited about going to work in the morning (minus the hour drive).
Please fill me in.
