Pros

Guidewire has challenged me to grow and develop both professionally and personally. The people are incredibly smart and innovative and knowledge sharing is a common practice. They continue to remain competitive with salaries and have developed the incentive plans as well.

Cons

Still a small company, missing some of the perks of a larger organization.

    Pros

    First and foremost, we put out great products. Our products run businesses, and our Claims systems are critical in helping people in times of crisis. And we have a great time doing it! Decisions about how we develop software, who does what, and our schedules are mostly driven from the lowest level possible. This is the most egalitarian place I've ever worked, where everyone's opinions matter and senior managers don't make "because I said so" decisions. We have fun with each other, people are expected to do their jobs, and nobody looks over their shoulder to check up on them.

    Cons

    Because decision-making is bottom up, we spend a lot of time in emails and meetings doing communication, aligning different teams and direction. It's also a bit chaotic, and you have to get used to a bit uncertainty at all times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out better ways to get new people to understand the chaos, to shorten the learning curve when you're first starting out with the company.
