      Great company. It treats the employees as part of the team, and not just another person there.

      Pros

      I've been with Guidewire for just over a year now, and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here. My team are genuine and friendly, which has made my work environment really comfortable. I've been given support for any and every idea I've had too. The perks and benefits have been better than any company I've ever worked in, with rewards such as LTI and wellness stipends.

      Cons

      Progress on bigger projects can be slow due to multiple departments involved.

      Pros

      Cutting edge technology, remote/hybrid working, relatively good salary and bonus

      Cons

      Still forcing the hybrid working. Way to much useless people in the chain. Slow and non transparent decision making. Frequent layoffs not relating with performance but purely on visibility in the office. No short/medium/long term planning. No carrier opportunities.
