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

Pros

New CEO Tom is very dynamic and I believe he can influence to change the culture of Managing up

Cons

You get promoted by "who knows who " in IT

Advice to Management

Don not give a free hand to Managers..have a check so that employees being harassed have a voice

    I have been working at Genworth as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fairly flexible, nice people, most employees have worked there for 5+ years, bankers hours, strong CEO, GREAT career development, room to move up and around, ethical, growing stronger, great company culture, company invests in the well being of their employees.

    Cons

    Lower level managers are very week, are not involved with the employees, do not invest in training. Huge quality gap between higher and lower management

    Advice to Management

    Get involved with your employees, train lower level managers to be approachable and involved with their employees (or fire them- despite 20+ years of working for you)

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

    Pros

    Very good exam support for Actuarial students, on paper, and generous exam raises. Friendly, competent employees at the non-manager level. Generally a polite, respectful culture.

    Cons

    Management is in continual turmoil. In the last three years, two CEOs (and an interim), two division CEOs for insurance (and the position is currently vacant), and it gets worse further down.

    Two decades of mismanagement and aggressive book-keeping means that every quarter is a scramble.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the giant holes in the balance sheet and deal with them.
