    Pros

    Fantastic company with good career opportunities. Good salary and market benefits. Great people and team environment.

    Cons

    US lead decision making may be detrimental to the rest of the global business and day to day work, however it is clear from the financials of the company that none of these decisions have been wrong for the group!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing and continue to evolve. The insurance industry is all the better for Guidewire! Thank you for the career opportunities provided.

    Finance Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Guidewire (London, England).

    Interview

    I was contacted by a Guidewire recruiter who was knowledgeable of the job and talked me through the team and the job. He said that that he would call me back in a few days after speaking to the hiring manager. I was patient enough as the call was just before Christmas and anticipated delays due to the holidays but alas! Over three weeks later there still was no news and the status on hobbits still showed as interview. When I contacted the recruiter for feedback and closure I heard nothing back only to find the status on jobvite had changed to closed. The behaviour was very unprofessional and disappointing. People know they win some and lose some so conveying bad news is okay at interview stage. I was rather disappointed with the conduct from a company with a good reputation in its field at least
