    We all know the catchy jingle; but “Nationwide is on your side” applies just as much to the insurance giant’s workforce as it does to its customers, according to employees. There’s an “emphasis placed on development” at the company, with managers and even top brass taking personal interest in workers’ professional development. In fact, 80% of leadership roles at Nationwide are filled internally. What’s more, the firm offers a “robust” pension plan after one year and an annual bonus for the entire workforce.
