Great place to work if you are very smart, super dedicated to your work, and like to travel and work long hours.

I worked at ThoughtWorks full-time (less than an year)

Pros

A company that hires the best of the best to deliver compelling agile software development and management services to its large global client base. A very fast paced environment that is stimulating as well as demanding. Probably the smartest people I ever worked with.

Cons

Full of cliques. Chicago is the center of the universe. Lots of competition for thought leadership. A few sacred cows that are untouchable. Some mid-level managers are real dinks who are fairly dysfunctional. Helps if you are fairly political and can survive in that kind of an environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Can't wait to see how the innovation of four co-presidents is going to work out.

    Pros

    good pay, great place for young people to work away from home and enjoy the consultant life. If you like to travel and be away from home then this is the job for you.

    Cons

    onboarding promises of location placement are not fulfilled and you may get stuck travelling 24 hours a week to locations as exotic as nova scotia.
