    Pros

    The people, the technology, the passion, the leadership, the benefits, the customers, the projects, all of these things are not only better than with other companies, they're the best. Every day is a pleasure and I'm continuously amazed at the hard work and dedication of my peers and leaders, where everyone works together to get the best job done.

    Cons

    There are some minor and expected growing pains but the leadership is tackling these head on and there are definite

    Awful Place to Work - Avoid!

    Pros

    Some nice people, good spot if you are looking for an insurance-company culture. Convenient if you live in Foster City or San Mateo.

    Cons

    They like to say that the company is experiencing 'growing pains', but in reality they have fostered a culture of elitism, inertia (consensus-driven decisions, which are horrible for the business) and many very insecure employees/managers with lower-than-average skills. Anything innovative is considered threatening and any employee who strives to deliver above mediocre is quickly ushered out the door. Nothing of their published values are practiced here. There is a good reason why this company is always hiring...

    Great company worthy of your consideration!

    Pros

    Great company that focuses on serving the insurance industry and is striving to be the premier software provider for that industry. While this may not sound as sexy as Facebook or Google I've found that working in an industry that exists to help people when they need it the most (ie: hurricane Harvey) is very rewarding in it's on right. I highly recommend you check out this company!

    Cons

    Company is growing steadily and is experiencing the normal growing pains of making sure to maintain culture and growth opportunities for its employees. Work-life balance can sometime be a challenge as well.

    Growing, and yet maintaining core values

    Pros

    Guidewire has more than tripled in size since I started here. While there have certainly been growing pains, through it all our core values of Collegiality, Rationality, and Integrity have remained intact. We still work to get along, to make decisions based on data, and to tell the truth.

    Cons

    With very fast changes to the company (acquisitions, new tools and processes), communication and change management have been woefully insufficient.
