Former Employee - Project Manager in Richmond, VA

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

Pros

good vacation, decent pay, tardiness OK (con?),

Cons

poor growth opportunities, cannot improve skills, cronyism rules, indecisive weak management, fake environment, unqualified employees from band 3 and above,

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Worker bees are scared to talk because of reprisals from managers. Listen to the annual feedback (everyone knows that even this can be traced back). Do not allow the stock price to influence your decisions. Promote and retain employees based on results, not on tenure or who knows who, etc.

    Firm growing quickly and still learning. Great time to be a part of this organization and work your way up.

    I have been working at Genworth Financial full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You are the only one limiting what you can achieve. Often positions are created built around a person's talent. If you can put together a strong case of a particular need not being met within the organization, they give you a shot.

    Cons

    Office politics; the best candidate doesn't always get the job; favoritism among teams plays in. Executive management can/does override collective whole of a group when determining candidates to hire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in the opinions of the people staffed on your teams; those working in the trenches day to day are often more accurate about who will/won't work in a role.
