Former Employee - Senior Administrative Assistant in Richmond, VA
Former Employee - Senior Administrative Assistant in Richmond, VA
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Genworth full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Salary is OK
Can be a good opportunity for the right person
Many offices all over the US
Home office support

Cons

Unrealistic business model
Too many budget cuts
Serious lack of company cohesion
They don't care enough about employee happiness

Advice to Management

This company has made too many changes in too short of a period of time. Expectations of production is just unrealistic. The opportunity was there to capitalize on a well known brand but too many management changes and restructuring has really damaged the company

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Smart people at the mid-level, completely frustrated by non-direction at the top.

    Cons

    Approval for ANYTHING is a nightmarish path of frustration, resistance, lack of knowledge, and ignorance. The whole senior management is suffering from some kind of PTSD that prevents action.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your people, delegate responsibility. Let go - you don't need to approve everything. Try new stuff, if it doesn't work out, then kill it ... rather than analyzing every proposal to death until you miss the opportunity due to slow decision-making.

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

    Pros

    Designed my own projects, got a great sense of how the business worked, gained training in new/additional tools.

    Cons

    Culture was a little stuffy, past layoffs made all full time employees anxious.
