    Guidewire provides great benefits package, the only thing that could make it better would be a free lunch

    The working from home policy (at least a day a week) is one of the thing I like the most at Guidewire.
    I also enjoy the beer bash with pizza on Thursdays

    Current Sales Enablement Manager in Foster City, California

    Very solid! Right in the running with other software companies of this size, no big surprises in either direction.

    The BEST thing is the absolutely huge flexibility in work time/schedule that people in engineering (dev/QA/PM) get; this company takes flex time, and work/life balance very seriously. I have no idea if that's as true in other departments.

    There's no real "worst" thing in terms of strict benefits, although the questions below ask about a bonus and the combination of lowish salaries (at least for existing employees) and a large portion of our cash compensation in cash bonus is probably the worst thing about working here in general.

    Tangible benefits are reasonably generous and overall pretty typical mid-size silicon valley company package. Health benefits (for CA/HQ based folks; no idea in other states) are good, and a very good company contribution for the employee with a decent level for spouse/kids -- choice of Kaiser or Blue-whichever, and the Blue-whichever has a choice of PPO/HMA or HSA-compatible plan. Decent, if not especially generous, 401(k) match, and the usual range of FSA options.

    There's a small free gym on site (for HQ-based employees) and a discount at a larger gym (with pool) nearby. There are the usual free snacks and roughly monthly team lunches. No day-to-day free lunch, although there are plenty of eating places nearby.

    There's no company-paid maternity/paternity leave, although CA employees are eligible for the CA PFL and there is a lot of flexibility about time -- I know plenty of people who took more time off than the state/federal-mandatory FMLA/CFLA requirements and the company was fine with it.
