    Toxic company culture limits innovation and quashes open discourse

    I have been working at Guidewire full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There are some great people here, some great teams and some genuinely are trying to do the very best for the customer and the company.

    Cons

    Company is suffering from growing pains and many of the original employees respond negatively to anything that is not "how Guidewire does it". There is a very strong class system mentality at this company, title means everything which is frustratingly exactly opposite of what they promote as their values. They hire senior, experienced people then expect junior work. Although hiring, there are so many people looking for new jobs and fleeing it's shocking. There is a reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get expert leadership help to change HQ culture, set standards, and resolve significant IT and personnel issues.

    - We're not a start-up anymore or a big company with big benefits. But, we're finding our place, and I believe in the company
