I worked at Genworth full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Mostly nice co-workers. Easy commute. Easy work if you do not want to think.

Cons

Poorly run company with outdated and irrelevant process. Mid-level managers are not subject matter experts with poor training in managing people and projects. Very narrow minded organization who fears new ideas and improvements and who is intimidated by smart people who look to bring in ideas normal to best practices in other successful companies. Management seems to enjoy chaos, office politics and back stabbing. Definitely not a fit for those who want to work for a cutting edge company. Bureaucratic multi-layered approval process for making simple decisions. Company and mid-level managers to not empower employees to make decisions. Heavy emphasis on reporting and more reporting, meetings to have meetings etc. Results of above are poor earnings, company in decline and high turnover. Either join the group think or you will be odd man out.

    I worked at Genworth full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It's better than retail and fast food.

    Cons

    Sweat shop mentality that keeps advertising their 'values' and what a great company they are; as if by repeating it over and over again will make it come true.

    Advice to Management

    Sell now.
