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

    Openness in discussing critical issues. Extremely high level of software engineers. Employees are trusted. Doing the right thing is always the end goal. No petty power politics. Great software. Customers come first. Test first. Performance testing critical. Writing great enterprise software is really, really hard. Guidewire is doing a darn good job of it.

    Cons

    I have to go over the San Mateo bridge three days a week. Sigh.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the faith. Keep control of our fate.

    Pros

    Work with smart and capable people.
    Great work/life balance - not expected to work long hours.
    Best collaborative environment in Silicon Valley.
    Steady growth.
    Rational decision making.

    Cons

    We've grown at a slow and steady pace, with increasing sales; need to make sure that as the company continues to grow that it does not become burdened with bureaucracy and hierarchy. As the company has grown more management levels have been added so the organization is not as flat as it was; this is probably inevitable but it needs to be kept under control.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing more of the same. This is a great company and, as we grow, try to keep our culture intact.
