Excellent place to work with smart colleagues

Development (Current Employee)
San Mateo, CA

I have been working at Guidewire

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

ConsGuidewire 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 Senior ManagementKeep 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).

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
