    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Nationwide Building Society full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Everybody really cares about the the customers (members) - some companies claim they do but Nationwide means it Competency based interviews mean if you are good enough, you'll get the job irrespective of age or other factors Open minded and positive about career development - you don't have to be secretive

    Cons

    Frustratingly slow to make decisions and make things happen. Rigid salary and benefits - don't get lured by the advertised salary range, that is not on offer until you've done a few years in the position

    Advice to Management

    The core of the business is rock solid but we could be offering so much more to our members if you could make quick decisions.
