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

    Pros

    It's a job - you get pay and average benefits.

    Cons

    Management doesn't listen to employees. They act like they do, but they're unreceptive to ideas to make the place better - in one ear and out the other. The company's slow to change and has no vision. Some of your coworkers are unprofessional to the point of unlawfulness. It's truly sad.

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to your employees and take action (and don't be slow about it). Hire better, pay better. Use some of that China money to do it.
