Pros

Guidewire employs great people, we build great enterprise software systems that solve real-world business problems. We have a strong management team and a focused corporate vision, and most importantly, we have lots of happy customers. It's a marketing person's dream.

Cons

If I had to pick a negative about working at Guidewire (and I do to get my comments to display at all), It's that hiring in some non-engineering areas has lagged a bit behind service demands. Good news is that there is lots of targeted hiring underway, in engineering and elsewhere.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing - it's working.

    Pros

    Openness in discussing critical issues. Extremely high level of software engineers. Employees are trusted. Doing the right thing is always the end goal. No petty power politics. Great software. Customers come first. Test first. Performance testing critical. Writing great enterprise software is really, really hard. Guidewire is doing a darn good job of it.

    Cons

    I have to go over the San Mateo bridge three days a week. Sigh.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the faith. Keep control of our fate.

    Pros

    Unequivocally, it's the people. Everyone helps. All you have to do is ask.

    Cons

    In pro services, we travel. The travel is not all that bad for me. It's where you have to go when you work in the insurance industry. Think cold and gray winters in the northeast and the northern mid-west.
