    Pros

    Culture and core values, smart people.

    Cons

    Due to recent change in mgmt. Hyderabad Office is experiencing some immature leadership. Be it office managers, people champion and capability lead (lol) The funniest part was if u don't have capability and speaks well then you will be next capability lead.

    Advice to Management

    Learn some people management skills. Treat equally dont show favouritism.

    Give more focus to the feedback of former employees

    • Senior Management
    Summer Intern in Bangalore

    I worked at ThoughtWorks

    Pros

    "Good very good work life balance" "Smart people who are very passionate about software delivery" If you are looking for a place where you want to grow internally, fall in love with technology, this is the best place for that. There is no doubt about it.

    Cons

    I wont say any downsides. But people who get a chance to work with the awesome folks present here are lucky. They should not under utilise the opportunity that they get here.

    Advice to Management

    There are awesome people in ThoughtWorks, the moment you come in contact with them, surely one is confirmed to get infected by the disease of technical love that they possess. One might be dumb in tech, might not even have interest in tech at all

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at ThoughtWorks full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Diverse, and some really very smart people, people who can teach you a world every single day. Fun and mostly relaxed place to work. You easily make very good friends here. Free food. Opportunities to travel.

    Cons

    Salary. Don't expect to move up the ladder if you don't slog more than the required hours every day. It's expected of you to do more than your responsibilities. The free & open culture that made this place what it is is deteriorating very very fast, old timers are getting unhappier with every passing day, some of them have already quit. The company is slowly & steadily moving into the direction of organizations like TCS, Infosys etc. where they are hiring (not so smart) people without any mind and putting them on the beach (bench). Some projects are really very bad and people staffed on them are growing unhappy every day and yet somehow these clients have become the most important to ThoughtWorks India. The technology focus is slowly waning and the upper management which is mostly non-techy is vehemently trying to promote a culture where the client's business would become much more important than being a tech-first company, even in the face of staunch opposition from the technologists. We're no longer about tech at core. For an organization which has a claim to flat hierarchy agility, it's becoming far too process oriented. The culture is changing so fast that many old timers don't connect with it any more but favoritism for people who do connect is increasing every day. Politics is increasing too. Fake Social and Economic justice campaigns. The company prides itself with a commitment to social and economic justice, something which is one of the foundational pillars of this company (P3). But it is mostly a sugar coated term for promoting the leftist, socialist agenda of its American founder who thinks he knows better about India than Indians. This has led to formal associations with CPI & CPM backed organizations which is really scary. Bottomline - the best time to join and work for ThoughtWorks has passed and I can only see the company getting worse off from here.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up. Pour coffee over yourself and wake up now. Or else you'd throw this great company built over the years to the dogs. People who are complaining for a long time are not just cribbing. They are genuine ThoughtWorkers who have cared about this company for long. Sit up, take notice and listen to them. This is not the ThoughtWorks I joined, this is not the ThoughtWorks we have known for years. I am quitting soon but there might still be time to salvage it all.
