    Excellent, stable place to work

    Pros

    Thoughtful, intelligent colleagues; excellent work-life balance; very stable company. Provides software to a very stable industry (insurance) that really needs the applications in order to function.

    Cons

    Not much to say here -- doesn't have all the "perks" of some other companies like Google and Facebook, but those "perks" (cafeterias, bars, toys) seem mostly aimed at keeping people at work 100% of the time, which doesn't seem healthy.

    Pros

    I was a little worried when I first was ask to join Guidewire. I was a programmer with a lot of experience but not in the insurance industry. When I went through training I found that all the folks that I trained with and all the developers, instructors and others were so helpful. Great folks that help insure that we all grow and achieve our maximum potential. What a wonderful feeling to ge a Guidewire employee. I have been with the company for over a year now and the experience continues to be rewarding in so many ways.

    Cons

    The amount of travel as a field consultant can be a bit stressful. Guidewire is well aware of this and makes every attempt to reduce the impact of being a Professional Services employee. They make it feel like you are part of an extended family.

    My experience was extremely rewarding.

    Pros

    The company had a very friendly atmosphere and it was very easy to get work done there. The compensation was great and people are motivated to get things done and to help each other out.

    Cons

    Insurance is not the most glamorous industry to work in. The company itself is also not very well known, mostly because of the nature of the insurance industry, but that is not necessarily a negative.
