    I worked at ThoughtWorks full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It attracted a lot of nice people, and relatively without much office politics. Employees are smart, culture is very open and transparent, with some focus on good causes for the society, and did some nice projects.

    Cons

    Could be challenging for those who don't buy the company's culture and social focus. Pay for technical persons is ok but not very competitive for the talented consultants.

    I have been working at ThoughtWorks

    Pros

    The community within ThoughtWorks is outstanding. Lots of very good developers who are very passionate about their work and want to share that knowledge around. The company management is very transparent about what its plans are and what is going on within Australia and around the world. Company is expanding quickly and feels like there are a lot of opportunities to go to new places and do new things.

    Cons

    Top end it consulting firm in Sydney means that a lot of the work that gets picked up is with customers who can pay for it which tend to be on the larger side. This can be frustrating when a lot of the most interesting work ou there is with the startups and small companies.

    I have been working at ThoughtWorks full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flat hierarchy, great place to learn, people in general with very flexible mindset and not big egos. Very skilful people but also willing to share their knowledge. Strong culture of collaboration. Curious colleagues. A lot of people with many interests beyond tech.

    Cons

    - Very high expectations on everyone, if you are not aware of your own healthy limit, you might over-commit or burnout. - A lot of clients will be very traditional enterprise organizations, that hire ThoughtWorks to change things, but you will find a lot of resistance, so the expectations when joining may disappoint you when facing the first client, so be prepare to deal with the frustration. - Travelling and a lot of non-client related activities are counted as non-paid work.
