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

    Pros

    Great learning experience with exposure to many aspects of the business. Management is taking the time to sit down and listen to what lower level employees have to say, in attempt to better the work environment.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance isn't the greatest, but the management is working on improving this. Unlimited free snacks which ultimately make you gain weight.
