No opinion of CEO

Pros

great people, learned a lot, quality of life is good - they give some flexibility - they hire some extraordinary staff

Cons

There wasn't anywhere else to go within the organization and they were paying me less than market - they only way for me to continue to grow was if I did a relocation - the company is under financial pressure due to the housing market

Advice to Management

pay more attention to your people - offer more to take care of the people that are already on the team

    I worked at Genworth full-time

    Pros

    Nice location in Richmond, VA. Benefits are decent with generous time off if you are able to take it.

    Cons

    Company is rudderless and shedding jobs and businesses. Too many layers of management and approvals needed to get things done. Promotions are based on who you know not what you know.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline your levels of management and find ways to empower your associates to make creative improvements.


  2. "Mediocre experience. Opportunities to move were stifled and only given to a chosen few who were given the best coaching."

    Willingness to allow flexible work arrangements. Enjoyed working with the hidden gems in the organization at my level.

    Performance development review process is broken and not being read. Human Resources lacks real understanding of the talent in the organization. Will not get to know the rest of the orgainzation aside from a chosen few.

    Advice to Management

    Your strategy to increase shareholder value is by becoming an acquisition is working.
