I have been working at Guidewire full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Very intelligent colleagues, fair procedures, top equipment, great communication. I have worked in several places internationally and Guidewire has exceeded my expectations in every regard. I was not challenged enough in my prior positions and have finally found a great match.

Cons

I am very satisfied, so no entry here.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work and don't restrict your proserv employees travel choices.

    Former Employee - Summer Intern in Foster City, CA
    Former Employee - Summer Intern in Foster City, CA

    I worked at Guidewire as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Everyone was extremely friendly to all of the interns, and all other new employees. I immediately felt comfortable talking to anyone, no matter what their job title or position was.

    The project I was givin was challenging enough to be interesting, but not overwhelming. The intern supervisor also emphasized that we should enjoy our time there and not worry too much about completing our project if it would take too much.

    The office is also nice and has lots of food and drinks around.

    Interns were also given chances to meet various managers and executives for lunch, and ask them questions about anything.

    Cons

    Sometimes policies, such as timesheets, were a bit confusing, but it was a slight distraction not a big problem.
