Pros

Friendly, collaborative atmosphere
Always something new to learn and always someone to help.

Cons

If you are coming from a cube or office as a developer you are in for a change. Turns out change can be good.
Commuting benefits compared to other companies are lacking. For example, no caltrain subsidiary or bus lines.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stay competitive in the employee landscape of silicon valley. Make it easier to come to Foster City.

    Pros

    The compensation is good and there isn't a lot of 'fluff' to wade through in order to do your job. On the contrary, they expect you to be focused on success and they try to support you. Guidewire can do this because they try hard to make sure your goals are the company's goals, and the company's stated goals are its real goals.

    Cons

    The company does have high expectations and in certain areas, tight demands.

    I have been working at Guidewire full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Guidewire has really good people with a culture of working together well. There's a lot of respect between different departments so as a developer you know that the product managers and project managers will work with you to solve problems, and will trust your judgement on technical issues and estimates. There's a big emphasis on getting work done without any politics. If problems come up the attitude is always how can we fix it and prevent it in the future, never who can we blame.

    Cons

    Guidewire has a lot of proprietary technology, which is a mixed blessing. It means you can work on technology you might not get to work on elsewhere but also means it's harder to use some of the newer tools
