    I have been working at ThoughtWorks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits and the employers do care about your personal needs. Interesting projects and up-to-date technologies compared to most companies out there.

    Cons

    The enforcement of a "safe space" may be excessive at some times, reaching the point where some political views do feel indeed unwelcome and better kept in secret if they do not go along the main corporate culture.

    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Brand Name, Brand Name, Brand Name

    Cons

    Where do I start from? 1. It's the most shallow organisation unlike how the world perceives otherwise. The folks are stuck up and don't embrace laterals at all! 2. Small sized projects reflects the maturity of the offerings, the longest tenure projects are about 12/24 months. The team nor management are prepared to operate medium and large scale accounts but brag/hide fallacies and practices by claiming the existing brand name and insane billing rates 3. The processes are so flawed, they hire resources for increasing headcount and soup them into accounts which has no relevance to their prior skills 4. The management in Bangalore is biased and overlooks every concern of the laterals and threaten them with feedback sessions than resolving. Very unapologetic and HR won't respond to any emails/pings unless it's your exit email 5. The good folks for which TW was TW have either quit or disappeared, few handful who are empathetic will relate to your problems and hostility but are helpless 6. The learning curve is almost nil except for dealing with bullish attitude of the folks. And it disappoints furthermore to be part of the agile practices followed here

    Pros

    People, culture, multiple offices all over the world, benefits

    Cons

    Heavy on travel - you might need to travel 100% of your time and there's nothing you can do about it, this company runs on travel Pays less than what you could earn, especially if you've been there for a few years. Tells you that there is no limit for what you can do and how you can grow, but actually have some obscure ways of gathering performance feedbacks from managers that have no idea about what you do.
