Pros

Customer Success is always number. But Guidewire is really is serious about its values. Integrity, Rationality, Collegiality. This means that there is extreme trust among co-workers. The Company is also careful about who is hired, so you know that you can rely on your colleagues. Even when mistakes happen, there is never a hunt for who to blame. Everyone just pitches in to solve the problem.

Cons

Still working on improving benefits to levels that are the norm in Silicon Valley

    Current Employee - Product Development in Foster City, CA

    I have been working at Guidewire full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    No nonsense environment, free of the negativity that so many silicon valley companies seem to have. After working at big companies and small ones in the bay area for the past 25 years, I can unequivocally say that this is the best company I have ever worked at.

    Cons

    We don't have as many "perks" as some silicon valley companies, but overall you have to decide how important that is to you. For me, working at a place where I like and respect my colleagues is much more important. I really do like my job, and that's worth a lot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on doing what you're doing, it seems to be a winning formula: great sales, morale is great, environment is great.
