Awesome internship

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Foster City, CA

ProsNice culture, friendly and helpful co-workers, and great benefits. I passed the interview with Google and I was waiting for Google to reply to me about their decision for the Summer internship. However, Guidewire offered me first with a comparable benefits and they had limited time to answer them so I decided to go with them. It was the best decision in my life. I was mentored by 2 experienced engineers who taught us a lot about Software Development process. The manager would meet me every week to ask about what I felt about the company, teach me about management and chit chat with me about anything. They also have awesome internship program where we could meet and have lunch with the CEO, Product Manager, Test Manager, etc. to hear about their experience. They also have free snacks and bagels every Mon, Wed and Fri which made me gain a lot of weights. Overall, I highly recommend Guidewire.

ConsNone of my friends know about Guidewire

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