Pros

- Smart and fun folks
- Complex problems to solve
- Customers love us
- Adapting agile practices for enterprise software
- Selling with integrity and product driven
- Flat organizational structure despite consistent growth

Cons

Guidewire focuses on Property & Casualty Insurance core systems which we don't kid ourselves in thinking is the sexiest industry. However, there are real and sophisticated problems that we solve with our solutions and are used everyday by a large and global user base.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work and while the recent changes have been good, the execution is a little rushed (we're bigger than we used to be).

    Pros

    Unequivocally, it's the people. Everyone helps. All you have to do is ask.

    Cons

    In pro services, we travel. The travel is not all that bad for me. It's where you have to go when you work in the insurance industry. Think cold and gray winters in the northeast and the northern mid-west.

    Pros

    There is enough opporunity to complex technical problems to solve, good support from various teams while working on customer problems, good level of transparency for customer and management communication. Guidewire culture promotes competence with team work. Open with customers on product limitation and new features.

    Cons

    Company has more focus on technology driven changes than on increasing it's presence, customer is treated good for new features , but not so well on commitments for bugs.

    Advice to Management

    please relook at middle managment structure and other teams other than dev and professional services. There is lot of contribution from other teams that goes un-noticed
