    Pros

    Thoughtworks is a wonderful place to work, with lots of interesting projects. 1. You get to pick which project you work in 2. Teams are self organised, there is no boss, no manager 3. People are extremely skilled and good at their jobs 4. Lots of learning!

    Cons

    They hire good talent, and they should pay higher. They also do not increase salary to retain you when you resign

    One of a kind place becoming a shell of its former self

    Pros

    * Interesting peers who keep the bar high(atleast some are still here) * Also some of them are real geeks(read dotfile pros, terminal editor enthusiasts, mechanical keyboard fans etc.) and their company, discussion and passion is truly not easy to find. * Good software engineering focus. With some very experienced experts, there's always the discussion on better software engineering practices and staying updated with current trends * Potentially interesting hats to take on besides development. One could be a trainer, takeup tech assessments and so on * Decent pay and hikes

    Cons

    Possibly now(2021) is not a great time to be in Thoughtworks due to potential changes around its ownership which has brought about a lot of changes around * Decreased work life balance * Shift in power dynamic favoring managers more * Age old tenured Thoughtworker privilege. * At this time, to grow in TW you need to either be a loudmouth / tenured TWer / extreme hard worker * Unbalanced incentives for people who stay in a single project for a longer duration * No correction applied w.r.t losing principles / culture * Used to be a place where people were generally very kind / empathetic, now it's mostly unnecessarily cut-throat / egocentric / political (and there's no checks in place) * Newly introduced performance review system is really backward(losing flexibility in the name of structure)
