    I have been working at Guidewire full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Really a good company with a big pool of talented employees. Very cultural and diverse people work in this company. Good work-life balance can be seen here. Lots of Benefits in excess to your package. More fun and entertainment while you work. More space to improve your knowledge. I would definitely recommend anyone in Guidewire.

    Cons

    Average salary compared to current market standards. A pinch of politics can be seen, but they are ignorable. Programming Language used by Guidewire is Gosu, which is mostly not used anywhere else.

  2. "Excellent work-life balance with top-notch benefits."

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Consulting Internship 

    I have been working at Guidewire full-time

    Pros

    Excellent work-life balance with top-notch benefits. The management team really seems to care about their employees. You may have to work late/from home sometimes when the company needs you to, but that is balanced with the ability to work from home when YOU need to; its a fair trade.

    Cons

    Technologies used might not be the most trending.

    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Guidewire full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible time. Work from home schema

    Cons

    1. Boring technologies applied in most departments including GSC, SE, PE and CE. 2. Hiring external management like CEO rather than promoting people internally. (More than 80% of the management in the Cloud team are hired externally in last year) 3. Most people are playing games, watching Netflix in the office with yearly increment of 3000 - 5000. 4. With or Without promotion, you will be getting 3000 - 5000 increased anyway, it encourages people to not work. 5. Overtime working is not appreciate 6. Low Salary as 3000 - 5000 salary increase per year with or without promotion 7. The senior management does care about the year of services, while the junior management said they don't care. 8. Trying to said they have a lot of cash inside the bank for every company meeting, but never increase salary 9. terrible company structure and messy title/position with no standard
