I have been working at Guidewire full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

No nonsense environment, free of the negativity that so many silicon valley companies seem to have. After working at big companies and small ones in the bay area for the past 25 years, I can unequivocally say that this is the best company I have ever worked at.

Cons

We don't have as many "perks" as some silicon valley companies, but overall you have to decide how important that is to you. For me, working at a place where I like and respect my colleagues is much more important. I really do like my job, and that's worth a lot.

Advice to Management

Keep on doing what you're doing, it seems to be a winning formula: great sales, morale is great, environment is great.

    I have been working at Guidewire full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Guidewire Software has an incredible team of very bright software engineers. I get to work with and write about some modern and very technically advanced software. Guidewire is a place where my efforts are valued and good ideas thrive. Plus, I like working at a global software company that is growing significantly and becoming the dominant software provider in a very lucrative market. My future is bright at Guidewire.

    Cons

    I live in San Francisco and the office is in Foster City. Wish there were better commute options between the two.
