Guidewire Software, Inc. (NYSE: GWRE), a provider of the industry
platform Property and Casualty (P&C) insurers rely on, was again
recognized as one of the 25 Highest Rated Public Cloud Computing
Companies To Work For in a new list released by Battery
Ventures, a global investment firm, with data specifically provided
one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites. The list highlights
25 publicly traded companies—all business-to-business cloud
companies–where employees report the highest levels of satisfaction at
work, according to employee feedback shared on Glassdoor. This is
Guidewire’s second consecutive appearance on the list.
This distinction placed Guidewire at number 5 (out of 25 total) with an
overall company rating of 4.4. The broader average across Glassdoor is
3.4. Guidewire’s CEO, Marcus Ryu, reflects a 97% approval rating on
Glassdoor—compared to an average of 69% for all 900,000 employers on the
site–and the company has an 88 percent positive business-outlook
rating, again based on feedback shared by employees. The broader
Glassdoor average is 49%. A positive business outlook means employees
believe business will improve in the next six months.
“The public companies on this list have not only scaled their products,
teams and business functions—but they’ve managed to scale culture,” said
Neeraj Agrawal, a Battery general partner who specializes in cloud
investing. “We view these rankings as a key indicator of company health
and longevity, and we hope all companies on this list view it as an
honor to be included.”
“It was also more difficult to make the list this year, compared with
last year,” Agrawal added. Battery and Glassdoor also released a similar
list of the 50 Highest-Rated Private Cloud Computing Companies to Work
“The Guidewire team is gratified to be considered a peer of these
distinguished companies, who are applying public cloud computing to
respond to enterprise demands for standardization, simplification, and
acceleration,” said Marcus Ryu, CEO and co-founder, Guidewire Software.
“This work has moral urgency for Guidewire as well because the industry
we serve, property-casualty insurance, plays a critical social role in
protecting individuals and businesses in an uncertain world. This
recognition is another milestone in our journey to become the most
broadly adopted and trusted cloud-based platform for the industry.”
“We are actively recruiting to fill a wide variety of positions across
our 26 offices around the world,” said Helen Reid, vice president,
Global Human Resources and Administration. “Whether at our Foster City
headquarters, second largest development center in Ireland, or offices
across Europe, Canada, the U.S., Latin America, and Asia Pacific,
Guidewire provides compelling, challenging, and professionally
satisfying career options to consider.” For the latest career
