    I have been working at Genworth full-time (Less than a year)


    Genworth empowers their employees to make decisions and test new concepts. I feel very empowered everyday when I come to work. The vision of the company is also one of the things I love about Genworth. Everyone from Senior Management down understands our vision going forward. I also love collaboration of multiple teams to accomplish short-term and long-term goals. Many employees have worked at Genworth for a long time and I see why. It's great to work with awesome people everyday.


    Not many cons at all. Location is great, the people are great and the empowerment is certainly a huge plus.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communciating the vision of Genworth going forward. It is extremely helpful to hear it constantly to keep us focused. Keep up the momentum we have!
