    I have been working at Nationwide Building Society full-time

    Pros

    It has a Good Culture people are generally supportive of each other. There is a strong focus on Member and great flexible working options

    Cons

    The location isn't great, the building is over subscribed for the number of people in it. The general level of capability is lower than similar organisations and it can be quite process orientated - rather than focusing on the outcomes

    Advice to Management

    Make people more accountable for delivery and keeping promises - too many things slip. Less focus on the process and more on the content of what people are doing
