I have been working at Guidewire full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Smart and disciplined coworkers. Products that customers love. Minimal corporate politics. Plentiful social events. Great salary and benefits. And it turns out that insurance is a more interesting domain that I expected it to be.

Cons

This is enterprise software for very conservative customers, so we have rather long release cycles (2 years between InsuranceSuite 7 and 8) compared to other places I've worked.

    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 (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working on challenging projects, with interesting people, for a company that knows what it's doing and makes a profitable product. What's not to like?

    Cons

    There really isn't much downside. Sometimes I think management could give me a little bit more direction, but that's about it. Oh, and the toilet paper is neither absorbent, soft, nor strong, which is ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Expand the product line. We could make a bundle off health and life insurance.
