Company is OK, management not very seasoned

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Foster City, CA

I have been working at Guidewire full-time for more than a year

Pros- good worklife balance
- lots of smart people in development

Cons- technology and domain is boring
- old timers not seemed to be open to new ideas, too many homegrown technologies
- engineering managers have very little experience
- company is somewhat cheap, sardine- like workplace, noisy and lots of distraction

Advice to Senior Managementdevelopment is starting to see lots of politics, please install experienced managers than promote people that have little or no management experience.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
