    Current Intern - Software Engineer in Foster City, CA

    I have been working at Guidewire as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Guidewire has a very friendly atmosphere, and the company works hard to preserve its start-up culture. The company provides a great learning environment for summer interns, and I found that mentors and managers were all very supportive. In general, there is a great work-life balance at Guidewire.

    Cons

    Software engineering teams consists of seasoned engineers, but the company is working towards hiring new college graduates from top-tier engineering schools.
