    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Guidewire full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Smart and disciplined coworkers. Products that customers love. Minimal corporate politics. Plentiful social events. Great salary and benefits. And it turns out that insurance is a more interesting domain that I expected it to be.

    Cons

    This is enterprise software for very conservative customers, so we have rather long release cycles (2 years between InsuranceSuite 7 and 8) compared to other places I've worked.

    Cons

    - Fast growth has made more management layers - Nothing else

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest and us as much as you have and we'll continue what we've started!

    Pros

    Guidewire is a good company to work for. Chances to work abroad, maintain healthy work life balance, prestigious clients and some of the best team members and colleagues.

    Cons

    The company is going thorugh the growth pain. Specially the professional services unit lost of disconnect with higher management. Appraisal and Promotion process is sporadic and is a comlete blackbox.

    Advice to Management

    Please value your employees and provide them opportunities to grow. Please talk to field consultants at lower designation and find out their perspectives and issues. Make them feel inclusive.
