Pros

Customer Success is always number. But Guidewire is really is serious about its values. Integrity, Rationality, Collegiality. This means that there is extreme trust among co-workers. The Company is also careful about who is hired, so you know that you can rely on your colleagues. Even when mistakes happen, there is never a hunt for who to blame. Everyone just pitches in to solve the problem.

Cons

Still working on improving benefits to levels that are the norm in Silicon Valley

    Pros

    Awesome people!
    A truly collegial environment. People will work with you through a problem instead of assigning blame.
    Great culture
    Work at Home Policy - Teams are flexible for those who use it and people don't abuse it.
    Technology focus.
    Great business model
    Good work/life balance.
    Management is responsive to constructive criticism.

    Cons

    No cafeteria, although this is mitigated by snacks.
    There is a shutdown policy for several days during the holidays which makes sense. The burn is that it gets deducted from your PTO.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow intelligently. Now that we have gone through the successful IPO, pay more attention to employee perks as a tool for keeping employees happy. Continue to listen to employees and encourage feedback.
