      Pros

      Fabulous culture, really smart people, true spirit of agile. I learnt a lot during my time here that still pays off in my current role some 5 years later. Thoughtworks is ahead of it's time and an early adopter.

      Cons

      When I quit, the MD said, in what he thought must have been a compliment "I can't tell you're a lateral, that's how much you fit in". I had been in the company at that time for over 3 years. The focus on the "native" thought worker creates a subtle caste system. For a company that is so committed to it's inclusion values, it jars.

      Pros

      Get to work with smart people Amazing work culture Very matured engineering practices. Get to work on latest technology. Good pay compared to other services company but not as good as product companies. Hikes and benefits are decent, above market standard.

      Cons

      Management should identify people who actually work. Only values people who are good at talking. You have to be in the good books of management or the right lobby to get good opportunity or travel.

      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.
