    I have been working at Guidewire full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great learning experience with exposure to many aspects of the business. Management is taking the time to sit down and listen to what lower level employees have to say, in attempt to better the work environment.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance isn't the greatest, but the management is working on improving this. Unlimited free snacks which ultimately make you gain weight.

    Pros

    The Company is very strong and the executive team is leading them to great success. They are relatively generous with Stock awards.

    Cons

    They offer very low salaries and do not treat their employees equally whatsoever. As is usually the case with any company, some departments are the golden children and the others are the stepchildren. But at Guidewire, the golden children are treated extremely well, and their stepchildren receive absolutely no respect or appreciation of value. The golden children have completely open doors to all executives, and the stepchildren's comments and suggestions fall on absolutely closed ears. Because they have been named a "Best Place to work," they spend all their time keeping the golden children spoiled and begging the step children to do surveys and say something nice about Guidewire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
