Another Major Round

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?

113 Gone

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

Nationwide - Not On Employees Side!!!

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

Becoming a joke

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

Micromanagement at “ it’s best”

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

Probably the only news article you'll see....

Let's get rid of 4% of the workforce but keep it out of the news... said Nationwide.

Layoffs Will Continue Until Morale Improves

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

Wait, wait... There is another round of cuts in 2020

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.

With all the layoffs morale is in the toilet

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

Can we choose a strategy and stick to it?

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

Never-ending smaller layoffs

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 not worried about layoffs

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

Left Nationwide a year ago and not regretting it

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

Typical money hungry corporation

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

The new CIO

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 has changed drastically for the worse

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

Former workers are thankful they were able to leave

Office bullying

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

Nationwide Insurance layoffs August 2018

Des Moines layoffs - 30 people

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

Really high turnover

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

Got Out Because I Sensed Something Wasn't Going Right

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

Out on January 1st

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

Unreasonable workloads

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

Laid off on a video conference.

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.
