I have been working at Guidewire full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

excellent work-life balance,
big on knowledge-sharing and transparency,
big on collaboration and pair-programming,
meaningful and useful intern projects,
the walls are white boards,
the managers care deeply about happiness,
our weeks before a major release don't involve overtime,
we have our own open-sourced programming language: Gosu.

Cons

our technology stack is a little old unless you're on the Live team,
our main office is in Foster City.

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

    Pros

    Working on challenging projects, with interesting people, for a company that knows what it's doing and makes a profitable product. What's not to like?

    Cons

    There really isn't much downside. Sometimes I think management could give me a little bit more direction, but that's about it. Oh, and the toilet paper is neither absorbent, soft, nor strong, which is ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Expand the product line. We could make a bundle off health and life insurance.
