Featured Review

Current Employee - Implementation Architect

I have been working at Guidewire full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

- Gives freedom to explore and come up with creative solutions. - Excellent compensation and benefits package.

Cons

- Some departments can be seen as working in silos. The company is integrating them but the pace is slow.

Advice to Management

Bring different products on the same platform (technically). This is already happening, but more collaboration is needed.

Current Employee - Strategist

I have been working at Balsam Brands full-time

Pros

Company walks the talk - has defined values and follows them, starting to put emphasis on ensuring processes and systems are efficient

Cons

Silos, Communication struggles, technology is having to catch up

Advice to Management

Take the time to get your systems set up to fit the growth of the company. This will allow you to expand quickly rather than spend resources fixing what falls through the cracks.
