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

    Pros

    - lots of smart people to learn and interact with on a daily basis - Amazing opportunity to grow as a human being and as a technical person - One of a few consultancies that have proper work ethics and doesn't want the f*** their clients - Most people are friendly and approachable - Non-toxic culture and no obvious politics - No pointing fingers or blaming anyone. people are very protected which is good but could also drive arrogance and immaturity at times - Extreme programming practices

    Cons

    - Cults, yes cults. if you belong to a certain group you are guaranteed good gigs otherwise you will end up in big corporates and boring gigs - Lots of arrogance, most devs think they are the best in the world and they are always right and the client is wrong - Lacking seniority and maturity. Unfortunately due to their low salaries, lots of seniors including myself leave for other jobs which have caused a lack of seniority within the company. it's obvious and everyone knows about it

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

    Pros

    Get to work with smart people Amazing work culture Very matured engineering practices. Get to work on latest technology. Good pay compared to other services company but not as good as product companies. Hikes and benefits are decent, above market standard.

    Cons

    Management should identify people who actually work. Only values people who are good at talking. You have to be in the good books of management or the right lobby to get good opportunity or travel.
