    People work well together in development
    The use of Agile development fosters team work
    Your are responsible for your work, managers try to remove obstacles and not "manage" you
    Very profitable and very stable revenue stream
    Stock keeps going up
    Very nice work/life balance, good for people with familes
    less stress than most other Silicon Valley companies as the release cycle is over a year long

    I have been working at Guidewire full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    High Caliber colleagues and senior management.
    An open and responsible culture; never let down a customer.
    Product and solution that are admired by customers and prospects.

    Cons

    Personally, I have never been able to refer anyone here. For a while the HR team was clunky. And most of my friends are burnt out by lack of timely response. So I do not have a chance of bringing anyone I know into this company.
