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 full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The head office building is great. Everything you need is on site and there is a great buzz. Benefits are good, pension after 2yrs service is also really good. The people you work with are on the whole very helpful and willing to give you their time to help. Its not a place full of egos or people who are all me me me. Having had a number of jobs elsewhere this is by far the best place I've worked.

    Cons

    Parking isn't great, get in early if you want a space! Depending on the business area things can get quite political, so like anywhere work out who you can trust and who you can't. It can be quite difficult to get things done at speed due to having to get things done by committee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't listen to all the talk, look out for and reward the people who keep their head down and get the job done - we Ned more doers and less talkers!
