    Pros

    Paid time off is excellent - medical insurance gets worse each year

    Cons

    Constant layoffs and uncertainty; little opportunity for advancement in many roles; mid-level management with high salaries who do little for the company, an incredible waste of cash

    Advice to Management

    Do not trust your mid level managers to "do the right thing" just because they are managers - this is foolish. There is an increbile amount of favoriitism and backstabbing in Genworth's culture. I was unfortunate enough to be part of a team where it was so bad that it was difficult to bear. HR will do nothing in these situations, so don't even go there. If you do, it will make matters far worse for you as the company culture is that the "manager is always right, even if he's wrong." Sad, but true. This is NOT the case in all departments, just the one I happened to get stuck in for a very long time.

    Pros

    Transparent business plan based on integrity and a true desire to improve the industry by adhering to common sense guidelines.

    Cons

    Sales are micro managed. In order to be successful and hit your goals, you need to dedicate 60+ hours a week to this job, 30 of those hours are doing nothing more than completing nonsense admin tasks. Too many layers of management and each level imposes silly, mind numbing tasks.
