    I worked at Genworth Financial full-time

    Pros

    Regular paychecks. Free flu shots. Free parking. Nice computers.

    Cons

    Middle management is rewarded primarily for decisions that negatively impact customers and employees.
    HR is too involved with day-to-day operations decisions.
    Managers/supervisors that live the stated corporate values are treated with contempt.
    Employees cannot trust anything told to them by management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold middle managers accountable for promises made. Reward and not punish managers/supervisors that live the stated corporate values. Significantly reduce HR's involvement in running operations.

    I worked at Genworth Financial full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits start on Day One. Great momentum in diversity and inclusion. The workers are great. Compensation at a decent level. Rewards for performance are extremely nice and well-done. Trips to great locations. Tremendous Leadership program.

    Cons

    There is no work-life balance - a throwback from the GE mantra. Managers are stand-offish. Still mired in GE world. Although, they are making strides in Diversity and Inclusion for minorities there was no budging on forward movement on LBGT's. Promotions are plentiful but no training for those promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees. Work on a work-life balance. Work harder, not longer.
