    I am proud that Clearwater has made community involvement a priority – based on the voices of our employees. When we asked our employees what role Clearwater should play in the communities we operate in, almost 100% of our employees participated in the survey and nearly all of them said they want this to be a company-wide focus. That this is a priority for our employees is clear – in response, we launched a corporate social responsibility (CSR) program, which we call Clearwater Cares.

    I have been working at Clearwater Analytics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    First, the people. We work with the brightest young talent in the valley. When you're dealing with a hard problem, you have adequate resources to your clients a reasonable and timely solution. Second, the culture. Due to the rigorous interview process, it takes a certain type drive and/or intellect to work here. Those similarities make teamwork/chemistry very easy. Third, the "see it to completion" mentality here. If you identify a problem, you own it to the finish, which I love. There isn't any "passing the buck" here. Fourth, great vacation policy. Fifth, great insurance

    Cons

    Parking
    Training - the learning curve here is very steep due to the proprietary systems in place, so even if you have years of work experience, it doesn't mean you're going to jump right in and know what you're doing here

    Advice to Management

    No big complaints here. Most of the managers are very empathetic, which is key. The learning curve is steep, like I mentioned above. I think there needs to be schedule blocks of time for professional development. Although, I do believe the current "learning by doing" approach is the most effective, it's sometimes embarrassing to learn those lessons in front of the clients.

    Service Delivery Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Clearwater Analytics (Chicago, IL) in July 2019.

    Interview

    Approached by Recruiter initially and set up brief phone interview to see if it was a good fit. I was given information to prep for panel interview which was with several members of different teams. After first panel interview I was asked to do a more in depth interview, which felt like a test of my ability to quickly learn and being able to discuss a few financial related topics. I very much appreciated that they took the guesswork out of how to prepare for the interviews. Communication from recruiters and talent coordinators was remarkably prompt and I was given a definite date range of when I would hear back.
