How was the interview at Nationwide Building Society?

Pros

There was a good culture and I made lots of friends and felt well managed. There was opportunity for overtime and overal not a bad place to work

Cons

The pay is spectacularly uncompetitive. I left in 2017 on approx £22/£23k per year year into the same role at another company on £35k which, by the end of the year I joined, had increased to £40k. I also felt there was a degree of cronyism that you only got ahead of you knew the right people. I always asked for development but was passed up time and again, mainly I believe due to not being great at their interview style. I always felt like my face didn’t fit and since leaving have had 2 promotions. Maybe I wasn’t ready at the time but I felt like I was sisyphus pushing the rock endlessly up a hill with no let up or reward!

Cons

Bureaucratic Too many in middle management with no power to promote individuals Poor performance takes a lifetime to correct HR support is poor Too many side of desk conversations and not enough focus on productivity Antiquated hiring process and focusses on technical knowledge too much and not enough on people values!

Advice to Management

Have less people in middle management and give them some power to make decisions and trust those decisions - make it easier for them to promote their good people and avoid losing them!

Antiquated hiring process and focusses on technical knowledge too much and not enough on people values!
