I have been working at Genworth Financial full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Some really great people to work with as long as you don't go too far up the totem pole. Former CEO MDF is now history which was one of the main liabilities of the company. I hear the new CEO is pretty good but he'll need to replace most of the people that are reporting to him.

Cons

Unfortunately, for some bizarre reason most of the former CEOs direct reports are still employed. However, I'm hearing that their days are numbered. If you're an IT professional avoid this place like the plague. IT is way under funded and the demands on the individual are unrealistic. If you're a low level pion, expect opportunity for advancement to come in the form of a title with no salary increase or budget to do your job. If you're mid-management expect to be reorganized every six months sprinkled with layoffs in between. Unfortunately, HR ran the last layoff without the input of the managers and the company shed a lot of great people and kept a bunch of deadbeats so HR could meet their quotas and "appear" fair.

If you're desperate enough to work there ask for extra vacation time and a signing bonus. They do this all the time but you have to ask. If you have a high demand skill like an underwriter or an IT professional ask for a one or two year contract. That way, when you get laid off, you'll have something to fall back on. They do this all the time but won't admit to it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire everyone reporting to the CEO. They all helped to ruin a good company.

    I have been working at Genworth Financial full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, as long as you can get the work done clocking in and out isn't required.
    New Opportunities come up all the time so there are new skills to be learned often and to help your carreer path.
    Management listens to my ideas and responds well.
    Good Overall Benefits Package

    Cons

    The Medical Benefit Choices are very limited. This is a company headquartered in the Eastern United States so there is no Kaiser for us here. Would like to have more choices for Medical Providers like Kaiser.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more Medical Plan choices.
