    Pros

    ThoughtWorks is a great company to explore yourself & try out different career paths. Very open environment to talk about your expectations & aspirations (Though you will get honest reality check as well which can potentially shake you). Great work life balance & control on your career.

    ThoughtWorks is going through a change phase and exploring avenues to grow faster which may unsettle few things.

    Advice to Management

    Keep this culture going and beware of growth not diluting it.

    I worked at ThoughtWorks full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great learning environment both tech and culture. Client facing experience is good if that is your are looking for. Most of your colleagues would be nice and helpful. Work life balance is one of the best.

    Cons

    Few people trying to control the whole office and making it into dictator rule. Bootlicking is highly appreciated. Favouritism is becoming a prominent feature in the office. If you are not good at it, they will make sure either you become good in it or you leave the company. During your initial 6 months they will make you feel you are a complete idiot and whatever you know is completely worthless. Then they will try to make you a service based puppet who knows only one thing, that is follow orders.

    Advice to Management

    If you can then come out of your outdated mindset. Luring people with onsite of 2 weeks wont make an employee stay. Respect them and treat them with values that you write on your posters. And if cheap politics is all you want to do then contest an election and not ruin a brand that has high esteem in market.
