    Pros

    Great technical opportunities and good set of customers.

    Cons

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at ThoughtWorks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Most people are friendly and approachable. Training budget. Programming practices (when they actually do it)

    Cons

    Salary is below average unless you're high up on the ladder . Technical learning limited (good for consulting skills). Staffing people on projects that they don't want to be on - not listening to preferences. Cliquey. Mix bag of talent.

    Advice to Management

    Have a more rigorous hiring process. The technical skills bar is very, very low, so you may end up pairing with someone who doesn't know how to code or know some basic fundamentals. Many people leaving.
