Best company I have ever worked with.

Senior Product Manager (Current Employee)
Foster City, CA

I have been working at Guidewire full-time for more than 5 years

ProsHigh Caliber colleagues and senior management.
An open and responsible culture; never let down a customer.
Product and solution that are admired by customers and prospects.

ConsPersonally, I have never been able to refer anyone here. For a while the HR team was clunky. And most of my friends are burnt out by lack of timely response. So I do not have a chance of bringing anyone I know into this company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
