Successful and fast growing company facing new challenges. Good short-term outlook

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
San Mateo, CA

I have been working at Guidewire

ProsFortunate with top quality employees and good company culture from the early days.
Good product and customer pipeline so far.

ConsTalent cultivation and retention remain challenging in recent years. Start to see high exit rate in development for both old timers and newcomers.
Rapid increase in organization hierarchy. Currently six levels from individual contributors to VP in Development.
Inexperienced and disconnected management for a fast growing organization.
Compensation and reward system don't inspire good behavior of individual contributors.

Advice to Senior ManagementRepair visibility by reconnecting with individual contributors.
Avoid evaluating people based on short-term sales or superficial result.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
