    Pros

    Nice office environment, retention bonus , old company, good place for stall until you are not in demand.

    Kontras

    Huge turn over, all good tech left in IT , architects, good developers, project managers, QA lead , even AVP/BSA lead . always fire drilling and short term patch, only mediocre developers or hasn't been programming for 5 years manager get promoted. already internally decided. skills not matter only those play politics win, obsolete technologies, no capacity, stay here too long no good company will hire you and at... their mercy, changes so much can't keep up, only short term or season developers. Low morale

    Get rid of middle management, skill employees matter. pretty soon there will be no good employees to manage. don't treat them like idiots with kids games like toy cars racing or kindergarden competition.

    Pros

    Formerly Veterinary Pet Insurance, Nationwide Pet Insurance is a Jekyll and Hyde company. Once the industry leader with 70% market share, it's now scrambling to remain relevant because of poor management decisions and smarter competition. It finally offered a Percent-of-Invoice policy six years after its chief competitor reinvented the market, and it truly is the best product currently on the market. The Nationwide... brand is a strong one and should help stabilize the company. Benefits are average. Marginal performers who 'manage up' well will likely find a comfortable place to work. It's just big enough that a mediocre employee can probably hide for a few years and collect a paycheck.

    Unfortunately, it stills sells its old products too - highly profitable for the company but typically a poor value for consumers. As an employee, you're forced to offer the swill to unsuspecting buyers and that can be painful if you have any integrity. Senior management is still largely staffed by career VPI employees who subscribe to an authoritarian mindset where blind loyalty and the ability to toe the company... line are the only requirements of the job. Competence and creativity are not only unwelcome but actively discouraged. Inexperienced sycophants are the only people promoted from within - and it takes a terrible toll on the rest of the employees. Incompetent, petty managers make mistakes here that would never be tolerated in a more competent company. Nationwide is a mutual company, which means its customers actually own it instead of shareholders. There must be good aspects to being a mutual company but I never saw them. Internal technology is laggard - almost laughable. Innovation, non-existent. It's where good ideas go to die. The promise for managers seems to be lifetime employment, and that's never a good thing if you need to stay competitive. If you consider yourself a good or better contributor you will stick out like a sore thumb here and will likely end up depressed or worse. The management team has a bunker mentality and adversarial relationship with the workers that is totally out of touch with any modern white-collar workplace. And yet the same team persists year after year.

    "A fish rots from the head down." Truer words have never been spoken. VPI/Nationwide Pet Insurance would make a great Harvard Business Case Study - "High-flying market leader gets complacent with success and is eventually driven to irrelevance." There's still time to change the ending of this story but it's slipping away quickly. A stronger parent company would have addressed this years ago. Nothing but a total... house cleaning of the management ranks can turn this ship around.

    Pros

    Can sometimes work from home, work/life balance, similar pace to some government jobs, frequent opportunities to stack PTO with holidays, pension plan.

    Kontras

    Clicky environment, co-workers are not down to earth, working with corporate is a hassle, all management is out of touch, very little perks, everything is urgent, no room for growth.

    Rat an das Management

    Other Fortune 100 companies are poaching your workers. Be pro-active, competitive, and less hands-on when it comes to managing Nationwide Pet. Sooner or later, there won't be anyone left to boss around.

    Pros

    No overtime required, holidays off, inbound calls and no cold calls

    Kontras

    Have to write bad business to maintain a high conversion. Work for the worst manager ever who back stabs you and smiles to your face. She has poor leadership skills. It appears upper management loves her and protects her. Employees would work harder if she was gone or stopped micro managing. Manager tries to find errors you make to give you a zero in quality. Manager has power control issues. Hard to take vacation... now since every agent has to plan a year in advance otherwise you lose the days off. First come first serve.

    Get rid of some old managers to improve over all performance. A sales manager is there to motivate its team, promotes a positive environment, thanks the employees for working hard during peak months and not to put agents down or find ways to write them up to show who is boss.

    Pros

    Bring your pet to work day.

    Kontras

    Terrible management perspective. Numbers & KPI focused, which does not enable or inspire to go above and beyond. Environment is a bit suffocating.

    Rat an das Management

    Customer service paradigm is shifting. So is the approach that employers must take to ensure they have loyal, capable, intelligent employees - employers are starting to realize that if they want to attract employees that are going to grow and enrich the company brand, they have to be employee centric, and go above the poorly set standard of providing the bare minimum and requiring the maximum.

    Pros

    Easy. No paperwork. Friendly environment. Some months can earn well over their intended 2k in bonuses. When you hit all sales goals in one month the pay can be well over the company target of 5k

    Kontras

    Monthly goal adjusts from month to month and it's set by the company based in their expectations. They get it wrong from time to time and it's tough to have a good sales month. Some performance metrics are nearly impossible to hit every single month. No control over your first shift and your stuck there for an entire year before you can hopefully change it.

    Pros

    Fellow employees very committed to the mission of the company helping highly bonded pet owners protect the health of their pets. Good working environment.

    Kontras

    Culture changing since Nationwide purchased the company. Departments are becoming more silo'd. Pressure on growth. Turnover increasing.

    Rat an das Management

    Try to maintain the culture that served the company for so many years.

    Kontras

    Once Nationwide took over the company, it all went downhill. Benefits suck, management sucks, and any employee moral was deeply impacted in a negative way. One supervisor in particular picks favorites and uses anything you say against you later. He does not fight or support his team.

    Listen to your employees

    Pros

    I got a paycheck, small as it was.

    Kontras

    Where do I begin? It's a good thing corporate bullying of employees is still legal. It's rampant from the VP level down.

    Rat an das Management

    Get rid of any management-level people who've been there 5+ years. They're dead wood and holding the company back. Maybe Nationwide can fix things.
