    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Foster City, CA

    I worked at Guidewire full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good product, nice colleagues to work with, good work life balance.

    Cons

    Boring technology stack. It is partly due to the industry.

    Company is growing and a lot of chop and change is happening right now. Job security is bad. Management is completely callous about its employees career interests. All that matters is its business interests and that is very evident from the utter disregard for its employees.

    Top and Middle management is rude and dishonest. Be ready for a roller-coaster ride. Realignment happens all the time. What you do in actual job WILL BE different from what you were told during the interviews.

    If you are ambitious about your career, don't join this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest and transparent. Treat your employees well.

    I have been working at Guidewire full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    So many talented people on the team. Collegiality is just fantastic. If you have ANY problem colleagues will help you no matter how long it takes. Developers are also completely shielded from unreasonable deadlines or customer commitments.

    Cons

    Compensation is good but could be better. 401k benefits need to become better. Health benefits are OK but really should be mote competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing.
