    Pros

    - Everyone is truly kind, thoughtful, and smart. I haven't encountered any jerks since I've been here, which is refreshing. - The work is challenging and there are a lot of opportunities to learn as much as you want - Interesting company story/history that is a bit different from most other tech companies - Real dedication to inclusion that can be felt from day 1 when gender pronouns are declared when at orientation; really cool work done (solidarity over charity) to support causes dealing with poverty, health, climate change, etc.

    Cons

    - There is a bit of a divide in mindsets between some people who have been with the company for a long time and others who are newer; not too different from other companies in that sense, probably, but seems to be a bit more prevalent here. Will be interesting to see how the company progresses as a business considering its history - Lots of opinions, which isn't always a bad thing, but can feel a bit like 'death by committee' at times - ThoughtWorks is very committed to social change but needs to figure out how to balance that work/mentality with thriving as a business

    Pros

    Co-workers are amazing people until their hiring practices changed Was a very diverse and inclusive organization until hiring practices changed; and movement to UK as HQ vs Chicago

    Cons

    PE firm buy-out changed the company culture Leadership is prior tech consultants that lack business acumen and do not know how to strategically manage, lead or operationalize the organization Without social capital you do not move ahead; politics, glad handing is needed Salary is not to market; doesn’t support the road warrior lifestyle
