Pros

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Foster City, CA

    I have been working at Guidewire full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    1. I have a deep trust in my team particularly my manager and mentor
    2. I am asked regularly for advice on my area of expertise and it's followed
    3. I have different, challenging projects on a regular basis. I am out of my comfort zone and I don't mind taking my skill set up to the next level
    4. I have admiration for the founders and the leadership team. I know they are honorable and will do the right thing. I appreciate their conservative approach
    5. I take pride in the product and know that fundamentally our customers and their customers will have a better quality of life as a result of our work.
    6. I am in awe of our Engineering team and their flexibility. I think our approach to Engineering is admirable and difficult and I think that it is a rare opportunity to get exposure to a disruptive way of working together

    Cons

    1. It's never easy working in a high growth company globally. A strategy is to set personal boundaries and prioritize the work
    2. We used to hear more frequently on the state of the company. There has been more mixed messages on what is going on and some communication would be great,
    3. I hope even though we are growing we don't sacrifice getting together annually as a team. The experience of seeing your global colleagues is priceless. Maybe an alternative would be not inviting a +1

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work - call or write more often!
