Guidewire Software, Inc. (NYSE:GWRE), a provider of software products to Property/Casualty insurers, has been honored with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, recognizing the 50 Best Places to Work in 2014. The Employees’ Choice Awards, now in its sixth year, rely solely on the input of employees, who elect to provide feedback on their jobs, work environments and companies via Glassdoor’s anonymous online company review survey. Guidewire placed sixth in this year’s results. “It is very gratifying to have our employees share their thoughts about Guidewire in such a favorable way,” said Marcus Ryu, chief executive officer, Guidewire Software. “We appreciate the forum that Glassdoor provides and thank them for sponsoring these awards.” Guidewire is hiring in many functional areas. Details are available at: http://careers.guidewire.com. “Glassdoor is working to create greater workplace transparency and is committed to helping people find jobs they love,” said Glassdoor CEO & Co-founder Robert Hohman. “Through the Employees’ Choice Awards, we aim to highlight those employers that excel in keeping employees satisfied and engaged.” The Glassdoor company review survey includes both quantitative and qualitative questions designed to capture a genuine and authentic inside look at what it’s like to work at particular jobs and companies. The survey asks employees to rate their satisfaction with the company overall, and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation and benefits, work/life balance, senior management, as well as culture and values. In addition, employees are asked to describe the best reasons to work at their company as well as any downsides. The 50 Best Places to Work are determined using company reviews shared by U.S. based employees who elected to participate in the survey between November 14, 2012 and November 12, 2013. To be considered for the Best Places to Work list, a company must have at least 1,000 or more employees and have received at least 50 approved company reviews during the window of eligibility. The final list is compiled based on Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm, and takes into account quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.
