Interesting, rewarding, and mentally challenging, solving difficult problems in a very supportive environment

Technical Writer (Current Employee)
Foster City, CA

I have been working at Guidewire full-time

ProsSmart people, good salary and benefits, fast-paced, lots of opportunity to see that something needs to be done and do it. Recognition for good work or good efforts. Pride in being a member of a market leader with satisfied customers and excellent prospects for the future.

ConsNo privacy (open seating), inadequate personal space.

Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize that employees who spend 2000+ hours a year in the office need more than a 5 x 3 foot space to accommodate their work and perhaps a few personal items they might want to look at to remind them of their loved ones.

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