For a financial services business it's not bad - being a mutual building society helps. Many people there seem to genuinely care about the customers/members. They're certainly doing a lot less bad than the financial sector on average. However, the culture and atmosphere are still not great - very narrow-minded and narrowly educated management, lots of BS admin and posing. Tensions in teams and problems in communication do not get resolved actively. Overall not a very inspiring or progressive company at all. They pay ok-ish and the work-life balance and benefits are fairly good.
Great job, wonderful work life balance. Promotion very much depends on 'playing the game' or having a relationship with the interviewer. Hard to progress without becoming a robot.
So, I started my job in May of this year, and I thought I was doing well. Made friends had a routine, I loved my job, happy healthy work and social life, and Had my family, and boyfriend, then one day my manager dropped a bomb on me to say I'm no longer needed before my contract ends and I have days notice. confused, angry scared, I have no job, I have bills to pay. great thank you, they're meant to be a great company to work for! I had no idea what i needed to improve on.
A fabulous place to work if the pay is right. Work place is fun and inclusive, plenty of opportunity to progress in your career if you put yourself forward and take advantage of the resources made available to you. Management listens to staff feedback but there are too many red tapes to implement changes in a good time. You do get great work benefits but the pay is a little poor. Nationwide can do better with pay.
My past career with Nationwide has been with launching the flex account so it was quite a while ago, but my work experience was enjoyable and useful as you could increase your level of work through your job and experience all processes and management level as part of your training. I wish I never left.
