I worked at Genworth full-time

Pros

Regular paychecks. Free flu shots. Free parking. Nice computers.

Cons

Middle management is rewarded primarily for decisions that negatively impact customers and employees.
HR is too involved with day-to-day operations decisions.
Managers/supervisors that live the stated corporate values are treated with contempt.
Employees cannot trust anything told to them by management.

Advice to Management

Hold middle managers accountable for promises made. Reward and not punish managers/supervisors that live the stated corporate values. Significantly reduce HR's involvement in running operations.

    I have been working at Genworth full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, as long as you can get the work done clocking in and out isn't required.
    New Opportunities come up all the time so there are new skills to be learned often and to help your carreer path.
    Management listens to my ideas and responds well.
    Good Overall Benefits Package

    Cons

    The Medical Benefit Choices are very limited. This is a company headquartered in the Eastern United States so there is no Kaiser for us here. Would like to have more choices for Medical Providers like Kaiser.

    Advice to Management

    Get more Medical Plan choices.
