    I worked at ThoughtWorks full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Many talented, smart, hard working people. Can be a very friendly and social atmosphere. The company does some really cool charity work for great causes that are making an impact.

    Cons

    People getting burned out on stressful, boring projects with lots of politics. Some people start behaving badly under these conditions. The travel can be painful. Low pay. Can be cult like. Too much elitism and too many judgemental people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop spending so much money on wasteful travel and other frivolous expenses. That money could be put to much better use making your rates affordable to more companies and paying your staff better. Try to reduce the cliqueness and the divide between the in crowd and everyone else.
