    Pros

    great benefits that's about it

    Cons

    The environment is extremely toxic and fear based management is in place. All of the things about the SVP written are true. I could go on forever at the horrid unfair things this man has pulled off. He has HR on his side covering for him so I guess that helps. Many people went to HR, bypassed the one employee that we ALL know is not confidential, and went above her head. NOTHING was done. Some pretty serious allegations were made as previously stated in another review, and NOTHING was done. A lot of amazing employees left, either on their own, or let go with no cause, all because they couldn't stomach the butt kissing.

    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.
