    Good place for developers who want to do good, steady work with no crisis-mode

    Pros

    Sane working hours, partly due to SCRUM and "sustainable pace". Good work environment. Really sharp people. Good ratio of product managers and QA to developers. Great market placement. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Guidewire has a substantial proprietary technology stack. Some of what you learn won't transfer out. Low turnover means the injection of new ideas is slower than at some places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let one team get too far ahead of others. Maybe rotate people between teams more often. Don't screw up a good thing.

    Pros

    Very good company management, doesn't get in the way and focuses on the right things. Very smart colleagues makes it a good work environment

    Cons

    I think guidewire is very cost-conscious, which is mostly a very good thing and has allowed the company to thrive, even in a very difficult economy. I think that this means salaries are not on the high end, that's the biggest negative but overall it's a great place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really cannot offer any advice here, this is a great company and the management is doing a very good job.
