    I have been working at Nationwide Building Society full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Nationwide is about more than a job. It's like being part of a family, both the people that work there and the customers. They are very supportive of work life balance and wellbeing. Good career prospects in branches and in Head Office departments

    Cons

    Not amazing pay at the start of your career, at around £17000, but they are willing to negotiate for the right person. Market leading benefits package though, so it's about more than the pounds in your pocket.

    Advice to Management

    The salary progression needs to be considered, have steps along the way to show how salary will increase.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Nationwide Building Society full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Fantastic systems, outstanding morals, strong processes, people genuinely seem to care, flexible and reliable

    Cons

    As the business expands and areas become larger, the community which makes Nationwide special is being taken apart. As teams turn into 'communities', ironically there is less of a community. No one knows what anyone else is doing and this negatively effects branch engagement.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to what Nationwide is about, not cheap adverts and cost cutting. The branch network is able to thrive, but only if focus is shifted from pointless metrics onto being commercial.
