Q: What's it like working as a Senior Application Developer at Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company?

Senior Application Developer:
Nationwide has been a stable employer with a fairly good work/life balance for IT staff (depending on your position and who you resort to). Their main flaw is their compensation which is below market value. Even with benefits not found at other companies - such as a pension plan - their total compensation pales in comparison with other companies, especially in the western US. They also have a history of choosing the wrong technologies and then paying the price to switch (for example, choosing Groovy/Grails over Ruby on Rails, Lotus Notes over MS Outlook, building their own data center vs using AWS, etc). The good news is they are learning from their mistakes and making changes. If you’re looking for stable employment without risk of frequent layoffs, Nationwide is a good company to work for. But outside of Columbus, OH and Des Montes, IA they struggle with attracting and keeping IT talent due to their low wages and mediocre benefits package.

Senior Application Developer in New York:
"Know CS fundamentals."
Read through a data structures book, an algorithms book, and a design patterns book before you interview. If the company is smart they won't be asking silly puzzle questions about being shrunk and put into a blender; they'll be asking questions out of those books. If you can reverse a string and write Fibonacci efficiently in an interview you're probably already in the top 50% of candidates, from what I've seen. Print out a Tree in level-order and you're in the top 90%.
