I have been working at Guidewire full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

- Absolutely no overtime at all in the past 3 years I work here
- Good benefits, bonus, and RSU's
- Reasonable amount of responsibility
- Company provided good amount of resource and training to do job
- People here are smart, reasonable, and respect each other professionally
- Management have an open door policy. They are transparency and provide regularly update about what they're doing/planning

Cons

- Not really a con but salary is a bit under industry average but other benefits made up for it. I'm just saying, not complaining.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management is improved dramatically in the past year and it made me happier working here. Keep up the good work.

    I worked at Guidewire full-time

    Pros

    Personable CEO, smart developers, free snacks, free parking, decent internal processes, friendly international employees.

    Cons

    "Work/Life Balance" a lie. Slave wages and pathetic raises. Backstabbing employees (not all) with the arrogance of knowing they won't (can't) be touched. Non-existant marketing leadership. Puppet HR group with no teeth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on keeping the shareholders happy but CEO needs to open your his eyes to the festering internal dysfunctionality and then DO something to fix it instead of just acknowledging that they got issues.
