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

    Pros

    Good collaborative space for technical people, good graduate program.

    Cons

    Management and recruitment lack professionalism, people skills, and knowledge in leadership or structure. Old fashioned, drawn out, opinionated processes that involve too many people to be effective. Too many bad attitudes, politics, negativity, and hiring like a cult (only people that "fit" rather than based on actual technical talent). Too politically correct to the point personalities are stifled and people become disillusioned.

    I have been working at ThoughtWorks full-time

    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
