I have been working at Genworth Financial

Pros

Growing company, lots of encouragement, not your typical insurance company. You can really have an impact here. It is an amazing culture of change, and I think the IPO had a lot to do with that. You get the stability of a long-standing Fortune 500 company, with the freedom and flexibility of a startup.

Cons

The company is still trying to figure out where it is headed, and the vision is still shaping up. That makes a lot of people uncomfortable, but there are very positive headwinds.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take more risks, let go of "old school" thinking. Need to be more decisive - seems like we tiptoe around tough issues, rather than make the big calls

    Pros

    Great People with Good Compensation

    Cons

    Horrible HR Department, Too much Politics in HQ SLT, Zero Human Culture. No future both from a career standpoint nor from an industry standpoint.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave politics aside. At then end you will also loose your job if you do not put the arrogance aside as well. Have a great team that is leaving the company. Ask why ?
