Does Nationwide Building Society offer parental leave?

Pros

Good job security. Flexible working arrangements available. Free uniform. Good benefits- generous pension contributions, option to buy and sell holidays, generous maternity/paternity leave, annual bonus.

Cons

The job is sales based as much as the company would pretend that it is not. There is weekend work involved, as a new starter you may be told a condition of working there is that you have to work every Saturday. You may earn less than your peers doing the same role who knew someone who worked there prior to getting the job, or people who worked there prior to pay caps being implemented on roles. Limited opportunities to progress if you don't work in a head office site. Some of the managers aren't nice to work with, you'll become a target if they don't like you. The pay doesn't reflect the stress associated with the work.

Advice to Management

Offer more opportunities for progression and accredited training to branch staff. Don't expect new employees to work every weekend. Improve the pay structure to make sure it's fair.

Does Nationwide Building Society offer life insurance?

Pros

Generally my colleagues were good people and management were usually supportive and approachable. Life insurance and sick pay benefits were helpful. Pay is ok when compared to similar roles at other Building Societies/Banks.

Cons

Unfair advantages given to certain people when applying for promotions. Not paid for working Saturdays (given lieu instead). Not allowed targets so no commission - difficult to motivate colleagues to refer. Outdated role now that Nationwide have are moving to what they refer to as "The Digital World". Branches are remaining open, except some smaller ones that have closed already. Getting a job at the Swindon head office is a better idea than applying for a branch role - there are far more opportunities for progression. Perhaps this would be the case for the offices in Northampton and Bournemouth as well. There was also a slight nasty, two faced culture in a lot of the branches which could be uncomfortable. Technology in branches is terribly outdated and you have to work between 5+ systems.

Advice to Management

Be honest with employees about the future of the society in terms of branches. Those who use branches are not the future of banking unfortunately. When interviewing employees for promotions don't give an unfair advantage to those who have flirted/lied their way to get the job.

Life insurance and sick pay benefits were helpful.
