    Pros

    if you have long term plans of sticking to a single place without growth . then this is the one.

    Cons

    If you are an IT engineer and you plan to worth in Genworth- either full-time or part-time you should get ready to see the worst work culture here. Working as part of the IT department, i faced a lot of politics, insecurities etc.... There are various contractors and vendors working along side in the department and everyone who joins this department eventually start following the same pace. its better not to recommend this type of company to anyone who prefers mental peace over stress. good luck!

    Pros

    Genworth has some excellent people to work with, who know what they're doing, and are enjoyable to solve problems with as team members. Additionally there's a cadre of seasoned veterans who are high-performing and well-connected, making new project teams easier to assimilate. Depending upon the team, this can be very exciting as a new opportunity is always around the next corner. All-in: some truly great minds, working towards an incredibly important social good.

    Cons

    Genworth has some non-excellent people to work with, who don't know what they're doing, and are not enjoyable to solve problems with as team members. Outside of Actuarial, Genworth has no Analytical Governance meaning anyone can conduct and present analyses without any peer-review. In terms of culture: there are handful of employees that can make the place toxic, that everyone else just has to tolerate. All in: some systemic problems that would make this a challenging place to work even if the business was booming.
