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


The people at Guidewire are friendly, supportive, and rational. The company is genuinely committed to Rationality, Collegiality, Integrity. The open environment fosters communication, the small teams encourage intense collaboration. Management genuinely cares about both the success of individuals and of the team as a whole. Agile processes with regular feedback cycles ensure that everyone has a voice in how we work, and in making that system of work more effective over time. This company has grown to dominate the P&C insurance vertical, and shows no signs of slowing down.


The absolute commitment to customer success occasionally creates pressure to put in crunch hours to ensure every customer is satisfied. While Guidewire generally does a great job with work/life balance, these unpredictable spikes could be alleviated if there were more spare capacity, the development team is stretching to reach all of the essential goals every year.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Expand development team (faster!) to increase slack capacity to respond to urgent customer needs.
