I have been working at Nationwide Building Society

Pros

good location and working environment, lots hapening, friendly people and good network of contacts. I am working as a contractor on a large programme.

Cons

The office is out of town so more difficult to do general day to dat activities. Parking on site can be an absolute nightmare

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I do not think this is an appropriate question to answer here

    I have been working at Nationwide Building Society

    Pros

    Collaborative atmosphere
    You DO feel valued and engaged
    Being part of a reputable brand
    A Financial Services company who's head office is in the South West...Not in London
    Customer focus resonates throughout all of the business
    A fair benefits package and bonus scheme
    A generally flexible employer

    Cons

    Decision making and change comes more slowly at Nationwide. Such high levels of collaboration slows down enablement
    Seen as a company that can offer a good work-life balance, but this isn't often the case. A lot is expected from you in all roles
    Performance management process not defined or refined enough

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A more robust and fair performance management process.

    People should be recognised for doing an outstanding job within the remit of their role responsibilities. Often it's those involved in the most glamorous work or those who are given additional activities that are seen as the exceptional performers... Aren't these people just the better positioners?
