Pros

excellent work-life balance,
big on knowledge-sharing and transparency,
big on collaboration and pair-programming,
meaningful and useful intern projects,
the walls are white boards,
the managers care deeply about happiness,
our weeks before a major release don't involve overtime,
we have our own open-sourced programming language: Gosu.

Cons

our technology stack is a little old unless you're on the Live team,
our main office is in 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.
