I've learned an immeasurable amount working with brilliant people on complex problems.

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Foster City, CA

I have been working at Guidewire for more than 3 years

ProsSupportive & collaborative environment, without any micromanagement. Opportunity to change teams to match interests.

ConsAs a SF dweller without a car, the location isn't ideal, but it's bikeable.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to keep resisting investor pressure - the company's done fine. And focus on increasing the engineer diversity - between product managers, QA, and other roles the dev floor looks diverse, but the engineers are less diverse than they could be.

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