    It has been a roller coaster.

    Pros

    Autonomy of how to do your job. Talented people around you to get the job done. Ability to find an opportunity to do something different and full the gap. Incredible travel opportunity.

    Cons

    Clients that don't really buy into the value proposition despite hiring you. Disconnected senior management that does little to lead or set a positive example and more to administer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be more inspiring and be more deliberate and organized about understanding the work we do. The hearsay is ridiculous.

    You will learn a lot, and work with the very brightest, but will be burned up.

    Pros

    Opportunity for world travel is great. Each office is just as good as the next. You will learn a lot from everyone that you work with. The best place to really learn and understand Agile development and project management.

    Cons

    Projects can be quite boring if you aren't willing to travel because of family. Very weak leadership. Many 8+ year ThoughtWorks employees are given token jobs that are a waste of company resources, and half attempts at improving the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to hire the best, and retain the best then you must be willing to pay the best. If you really value the long-term commitment of your employees, then get serious about retirement plans in North America.
