How are promotions handled at Nationwide Building Society?

Pros

Benefits package is good, work hours are good

Cons

So many 'lifers' who have stayed for 20+ years and stuck in their ways, promote based on who you know not performance, expect you to be in a role for 3+ years before promotion rather than looking at performance and capability, controlling managers

Advice to Management

Make a lot of middle managers redundant and get new thinkers in. Build on the agile ways of working to make it less political and secretive.
