    I worked at Genworth full-time

    Pros

    Lots of really strong team players and interesting projects Very Professional DNA (GE Spinoff) - more so than other similar sized companies Was extremely interesting when it had a genuine global reach and ambition

    Cons

    Years of bad luck (some externally driven - such as the mortgage losses - and some internally - updating actuarial reviews on LTC business) have led to the company massively cutting back and disposing of the non US businesses Business has been entirely focussed on completing sale to new investors for over two years

    Good work and life balance. People are diversified and generally very nice. Study support is very good too.
