ProsMostly nice co-workers. Easy commute. Easy work if you do not want to think.

ConsPoorly run company with outdated and irrelevant process. Mid-level managers are not subject matter experts with poor training in managing people and projects. Very narrow minded organization who fears new ideas and improvements and who is intimidated by smart people who look to bring in ideas normal to best practices in other successful companies. Management seems to enjoy chaos, office politics and back stabbing. Definitely not a fit for those who want to work for a cutting edge company. Bureaucratic multi-layered approval process for making simple decisions. Company and mid-level managers to not empower employees to make decisions. Heavy emphasis on reporting and more reporting, meetings to have meetings etc. Results of above are poor earnings, company in decline and high turnover. Either join the group think or you will be odd man out.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The company is very much on the decline and is using artificial means to try to make the financials look better.

    I worked at Genworth Financial full-time for more than 10 years


    Pros: It's better than retail and fast food. Cons: Sweat shop mentality that keeps advertising their 'values' and what a great company they… Advice to Senior Management: Sell now. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
