I worked at Genworth Financial full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Benefits were okay, but not great.

Cons

Management only looking out for themselves; don't care about employees; pay isn't great. Promotions happen via friends/contacts and are arranged before postings happen.

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

    Pros

    Pay is decent for Raleigh, NC. New building with free parking. Lots of good folks bailing because the MI buisiness is bleeding out. CEO is verfy personable but he bailed too.

    Cons

    A culture of CPI-nicks that never really accomplish anything. This is truly a "good ole' boy" culture too. The preferred management style is "micro-manage". HR actually runs the company and they are the most incompetent goup I have ever worked with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micro-managing.

    I worked at Genworth Financial full-time

    Pros

    Genworth offers many volunteer opportunities and tries to be a good corporate citizen
    Health and wellness are promoted
    Compensation can be good but not uniformly generous

    Cons

    Sometimes the relationship between Genworth and its data center causes difficulties
    IT staff sometimes get very overworked
    Conflict between teams can occur
    Not much opportunity to learn and apply new skills as training is pretty haphazard

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Properly appreciate the existing staff
    Hire contractors as employees where possible so the knowledge they've acquired (both business and technical) does not walk out the door
