    The maternity & paternity leave could be better, they say they care about their employees and want the health for us but that doesn't really show in their leaves. Also, the vacation days is PTO and not unlimited which I think it should be unlimited..especially when the company shuts down for a week during the holidays and uses your own PTO. It's almost a forced PTO, if you're going to force people to take PTO during the holidays might as well give us unlimited PTO. The health insurance could definitely be a lot better, my partner's companys health insurance isn't that great and ours is even worse. You get the flexibility to work from home if needed which is nice. We used to have better gym reimbursement but this year they changed it to $100/annually...which can basically pay for 1 weeks worth of gym

    Average to good benefits for a tech company in the silicon valley. Would love to see Guidewire follow the trend of "unlimited" no tracking on vacation. So employees can discuss vacation with their manager and take time off base on workload. And it would be great to have the extended maternity and paternity leave like other companies in the silicon valley.

    While the benefits are good, there’s scope for improvement which can be beneficial both to employees and guidewire viz. HSA contributions from employer will save payroll taxes. Also, it will give flexibility when moving providers

    The benefits are similar to any other company I have worked for in the past. They always review what we have to make sure Guidewire is competitive in the marketplace in terms of benefits.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Senior Architect in Foster City, California

    Lack of maternity/paternity leave. No sabbatical options. 401k matching is decent. Vacation policy is acceptable but could be better. Sick leave policy is old negative toward employees: 5 sick days a year that can only be used at certain times of the year (if you're sick around a holiday, expect scrutiny or denial of sick leave).
