I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 5 years

Excellent company to improve technical & personal skills. More freedom to learn any technology, domain. Work flexibility also there.

Cons

Salary, and sometimes need to spend more time on work

Current Employee - Senior Business Analyst

I have been working at Thoughtworks full-time for more than a year

Pros

1. Opportunity to work with a lot of very capable folks in all spheres of work. 2. True agile way of working 3. Each employee and their opinions are respected. There is a culture of mutual respect... and inclusion here, the kind of which I have not seen in the previous 8 years of my experience. 4. There are ample opportunities to learn almost anything w.r.t. technology for those who are interested. 5. The work life balance of employees are given importance. 6. Very good office premise - cafeteria, games, events etc. (though in these corona times, we are WFH) 7. There is ample career opportunities. Focus on employee growth.

Cons

Nothing to note as of now

Advice to Management

As we grow to a bigger and bigger company, we should consciously take effort and continue to uphold and propagate our culture and values.
