    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Nationwide Building Society for more than a year

    Pros

    Good office space, fresh facilities and decor. Good co-workers with flexible working to encourage people to do their best.

    Cons

    Frustratingly resistant to change or to question what the objectives are. Long term employees hold senior positions yet have little or no expertise (Mobile & Digital) Felt more like a body shop in the 1970's rather than a thriving innovation hub. OpenBanking... Lots of people sitting around pretending to look busy while management congratulate themselves on achieving great things whilst not achieving anything of substance. Wow!
