    Slipped from it's peak, still a fun place to work, but not as challenging or rewarding as cutting edge companies

    Pros

    In a word: lifestyle. GWRE has really nice people and knows how to be low stress. They rarely fire anyone, no matter how much they slack. As long as you are competent and add some value, you can coast there for years.

    Cons

    Not cutting edge, not willing to make tough technical choices.

    Most of their managers have not managed people before, and GWRE does not have programs to teach people how to manage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The corporate values were good early on in the companies life, but they have not been emphasized. The tech team needs to be pushed to adopt new technology at a faster pace, and you need to either get real managers across the board, send your people to professional development, or bring in some good training.

    You should also probably manage out or fire your bottom performers, slackers, and people that don't uphold the company values... What good are they if you don't reward people for exhibiting them, and punish when they aren't?

    You are not operating in a paranoid enough manner. Invest in some skunkworks projects to disrupt your own tech stack, or your competitors will take your crown away from you. Consider separating things out, deploying in the cloud, or using new tech like Scala, node, etc.

    Whatever you do, demand more output from your engineering team. They've been sitting on their laurels for years now.
