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

Pros

There are some talented and fair personnel at a company that provides a necessary product. The change in leadership was necessary and the share price reflects the consensus.

Cons

Lack of support from middle management when inputs to your process are outside your control, and you are held accountable for negative results. Tell all the facts instead of what you choose to tell.

Advice to Management

You need to motivate personnel and make each one excited about his or her contribution to the organization. You do this and success will follow.

    I worked at Genworth full-time

    Pros

    For the most part, a fairly bright bunch with some exceptions as can be expected in a bigger organization. There are a lot of people there who have been in the business for a long time and have a strong understanding of the business. Fairly strong business and legal controls.

    Cons

    Job and career growth opportunities are somewhat limited at this time. There are a number of new mortgage insurance companies getting into the industry and this will add additional competitive pressure.


  2. "Cared about employee's quality of work-life"

    Pros

    Fortunate to have 2 great managers to work for. Most employees loved working here so much that most new-hires were by internal referrals. Focused on keeping employees happy and healthy.

    Cons

    Upper management decisions on weathering economic downturn resulted in layoff-rehire-layoff strategy. Not a good work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Handle employee status with more stability.
