    Pros

    Stable job Uniform provided Can’t see it disappearing

    Cons

    Upper management are too far removed from those on the ground - they are quick to tell you what to do but as they are that far removed they do not understand that it is not feasible all the time. They are not accepting of challenge either

    Pros

    Nationwide is a company who like to recruit from the bottom which means you get loads of experience I'm currently in my 9th role since being there. Their employee care is brilliant and pension scheme is outstanding.

    Cons

    Technology needs to progress at a faster rate. New online platforms offer not much reward but are so easy to use and support in managing money more effectively making them an easy choice!

    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.
