Pros

Guidewire employs great people, we build great enterprise software systems that solve real-world business problems. We have a strong management team and a focused corporate vision, and most importantly, we have lots of happy customers. It's a marketing person's dream.

Cons

If I had to pick a negative about working at Guidewire (and I do to get my comments to display at all), It's that hiring in some non-engineering areas has lagged a bit behind service demands. Good news is that there is lots of targeted hiring underway, in engineering and elsewhere.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you're doing - it's working.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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
