The Guidewire Work Environment

Values are lived, not merely asserted. Most corporate values are hollow platitudes because they are too numerous, abstract, or idealistic. They are cast aside when inconvenient and often disregarded by the company's leadership. Real values are revealed by actions. And a "commitment to one's values" only matters if you are willing to sacrifice things you want (sales, profits, or competitive advantage even!) in order to uphold them. We stand by these values and they inform everything we do and everything we say.

Guidewire is founded on the values of collegiality, rationality and integrity. Put simply, this means:

  • We strive to work together as professional equals, with a minimum of hierarchy, and to value each others' well-being over the crisis-of-the-moment. We aim for a minimum of hierarchy and expect all managers to do "individual contributor" work. There are no status privileges-we all fly coach, both literally and figuratively.

  • We make decisions on the basis of facts and logic, and not for the irrational justifications that can creep in. Too often title/role, tenure with the company, political theater, rationalizations of sunk costs or wishful thinking become the basis for (mostly poor) decisions. That said we do not valorize raw intellect. Our ideal is practical reason: developing sound, pragmatic solutions to real problems and following them through to completion.

  • We tell the truth, both externally and internally. Everything Guidewire has achieved since its founding has been on the foundation of the truth: what our products can and cannot do; the true cost and effort of implementation; the true state of our business. We have quarterly company meetings with substantive updates on all aspects of company performance, and in-person accessibility of the entire management team is the norm. We believe in forthright answers to each other on any question and honest acknowledgement of problems with our products, projects, processesor anything else.
