    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    As a “bank” it has a refreshing genuine customer focus and rarely (if ever) in my 10 years has there been a situation when making business decisions that the customer outcome isn’t the deciding factor. Culture is good with a recent focus on being a bit more ‘modern’ and a flatter hierarchy.

    Cons

    Very difficult to move up the salary band at a decent rate, resulting in a need to move jobs regularly if you desire to increase your pay in any significant way. Training and development doesn’t have enough budget. Culture is still work in progress and there is still too much hierarchy resulting in slow decision making on occasion.
