I worked at Genworth as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Nice people to work with

Cons

Work was so pointless and easy. Management was not helpful when asking for more work and i felt like i was smarter than most of my co-workers. Co-workers always complained about doing work and sat and did nothing most of day. Terrible pay as well for FDP Program

Advice to Management

Look to develop more talent instead of hiring random employees to do a job that they are not qualified to do.

    I have been working at Genworth full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Paid time off is excellent - medical insurance gets worse each year

    Cons

    Constant layoffs and uncertainty; little opportunity for advancement in many roles; mid-level management with high salaries who do little for the company, an incredible waste of cash

    Advice to Management

    Do not trust your mid level managers to "do the right thing" just because they are managers - this is foolish. There is an increbile amount of favoriitism and backstabbing in Genworth's culture. I was unfortunate enough to be part of a team where it was so bad that it was difficult to bear. HR will do nothing in these situations, so don't even go there. If you do, it will make matters far worse for you as the company culture is that the "manager is always right, even if he's wrong." Sad, but true. This is NOT the case in all departments, just the one I happened to get stuck in for a very long time.

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

    Pros

    The food is pretty good.

    Cons

    Well, where do I start. If you are looking to move up the ladder you better either be related to someone within the company, be friends with someone with in the company or your not getting anywhere. I have seen too many times NEW HIRES they only have a few months worth of actual "GENWORTH EXPERIENCE" and get promoted over other longer term employees. It was my impression that the Genworth manual states you must be in a position at least 18 months before you can be promoted. However recent and past events have proven that Genworth's Integrity creed turned out to be a bunch of crap!

    This is not in any one unit it's across the board from numerous different employee's I have spoken with. They are tired of being overlooked for promotions and raises.

    Another thing is they have WAY too many meaningless meetings that provide NO insight and are mostly a waste of time.

    The Management expects work to be completed, however when raise time comes along this company generally gives the LOWEST possible raise.
