Just in from the rumor mill, the plan is to automate infrastructure and operations to the point where they can let all current FTEs go and replace them with contractors that will "keep the lights on." Not sure the time frame, but the way things are... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Nationwide (Insurance and Financial Services)
I worked at Nationwide for nearly two decades, and know they've been doing shadow layoffs for years. Terminations thinly disguised as performance concerns that don't stand up to scrutiny. A refusal to replace FTEs who leave voluntarily. A preference... — read more
69 claims employees have been notified they will be laid off effective Oct 2019 with “more changes and announcements to come” promised to those who did not receive a notice.
Heard there were talks about the Raleigh, NC location closing their building. Any truth or has anyone else heard anything?
I heard today from a person in HR that another round of layoffs are coming in the Fall of 2019. Anyone else hear this or know anymore information?
This company is becoming a total joke. Horrible upper management. Nationwide has to be preparing for some sell off of their P/C side or buying another company. This can be the only answer for their behavior. How they are operating right now is... — read more
Did any other Nationwide location have something similar to this happen? That a certain number of layoffs were announced then increased at a later date?... — read more
Let's get rid of 4% of the workforce but keep it out of the news... said Nationwide. https://www.bizjournals.com/columbus/news/2018/11/13/nationwide-cutting-1-100-jobs-in-columbusacross.html — read more
It’s pretty simple really. Technology is changing everything and insurance is the latest victim. Just google the articles about the future of insurance and you’ll see for yourself. Insurance in the future is going to be wild and there won’t be much... — read more
With all the layoffs morale is in the toilet. Workloads have tripled and our members are paying the price because we can’t provide the service they deserve. They expect us to “desk adjust” claims and they got rid of all of us field reps. This... — read more
Is anyone else feeling like they are in a circle where they are micromanaged to the maximum and they have no options to do anything about it, other than quit and end up without a job? My manager implements a vicious regime of micromanagement that... — read more
How many times does Nationwide need to switch strategies before actually executing any of them to completion? Talk about inept corporate leadership. We are constantly behind other insurance companies when it comes to adjusting to changing markets and... — read more
Is it just me, or does it seem like Nationwide has given up on major layoffs in exchange for never-ending smaller ones? Every few days I hear or read about another person or two being laid off. This would make sense because there is no bad publicity... — read more
I’m surprised so many people got worked up about layoffs. Speaking from my experience, we are so much overworked at this visionless company and with lousy salaries that at this point layoffs could come as a blessing to us. Maybe it’s not so bad to... — read more
I left Nationwide a year ago after finally having enough of being micromanaged and being expected to forget about having a life outside of work, and I have not regretted it for one second. I still feel for my friends who still work there. From what... — read more
I just lost my job yesterday with this company after being told it was safe. Yes they are laying off thousands of employees in Property and Casualty, Agents and IT. Poor leadership and poor financial decisions are causing thousands of hard working... — read more
It's interesting, as they just bragged about a billion dollar surplus for 2017 and yet are firing more people and yet again, leaving the company incredibly divided and top heavy. Let's not even mention the pay disparities that exist. It's a good ol'... — read more
Nationwide announced today to employees they are laying off more. (On top of the 1100 in 2018) Over 1000 more of us got payed off today
The upcoming 1,100 job cuts is the 2019 round of layoffs. The long term Nationwide strategy is for another round of cuts in 2020 as policy counts and premium continues to go down. Sad that so many good people are being affected.
More layoffs/reorganization to come should know more next week
Worked at Nationwide for nearly 2 years in the Carolinas as a field adjuster. Thankful I was able to leave before this came down. I could see the direction they were headed. Praying for my friends this Christmas season who will lose their jobs... — read more

I hear this guy from GE recently was leading many failed projects and initiatives. They are dismantling the business he was a part of. What have we gotten ourselves into?
Nationwide Insurance is closing its Allied Insurance office in Lincoln. Close to 100 people will be affected by this. From what I understand, some of them will continue to work from home, but that's only a temporary band-aid solution in my opinion... — read more
Things are brewing out here in the property division, not sure yet. Many rumors about future consolidation of Property and CAT depts with the enterprise. Any thoughts? — read more
Round one yesterday with the claim department. More to come as they move towards the good old "desk model". Watch the customers continue to flee as they deal with inexperienced claim "processors". Todays customers deserve more as they continue to see... — read more
Nationwide unceromonsly pink slipped 113 positions within the claim department today. Majority were mid-manager positions. Average age kicked to the curb is 46. Easy answer to get rid of people when times get tougher. But true answer lies behind the... — read more
So, the people who were notified a few months ago they were being let go were finally cut this week. Timing couldn't be worse, right before Christmas. Makes it so clear that Nationwide doesn't care about its employees one bit. Not to mention, the... — read more
40 years worked in Memphis and the office closed. Option to move to Gainesville, FL! I Miss my NW friends. Not surprised of any closings. Hang in there y’all.
It's sometimes hard to see why Nationwide even needs layoffs, considering the high turnover we have. I guess it's the combination of low pay, small chance of advancement, and disappearing bonuses that has people leaving left and right. I've had three... — read more
I don't know if other people have had similar problems, but for me office bullying and the inability of Nationwide's HR department to deal with it is what has me looking for a new job as I type this. No matter how bad it gets, the corporate HR just... — read more
I worked for Nationwide for little under 7 years. I still think it was a great company to work for in terms of work life balance and a culture of work. However, there were too many shuffling. They were too busy to implement borrowed idea than... — read more
Nationwide is overpay Manning, Earnhardt JR, Paisley and Lavar. Then claim your losing money thru losses. Drop agents and customers, but still overadvertise. Then lay off hundreds of employees. Now tell your customers that pay them for service to... — read more
This has become nearly unbearable! Our workloads at Nationwide have become ridiculous and beyond the realm of possible to finish in regular hours... Not to mention, no matter how well you do, don't expect to be rewarded, pay raises are jokingly... — read more
Nationwide today and Nationwide two decades ago is not the same company. This has become a cesspool of nepotism where good people who know their jobs and have been with the company for decades are being let go while the management's friends and... — read more
Nationwide had me drive to a remote location so my manager could pop up on a tv screen to tell me I was laid off. Nationwide wasn't on my side after 12+ years. — read more
