I worked at ThoughtWorks full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

There are plenty of talented and passionate people here to learn from. They have offices all around the world and can be good about letting you transfer. If you show initiative they like helping you move into positions with more responsibility. The company structure is relatively flat so you don't have to deal with people whose sole purpose is to climb the ladder.

Cons

TW is good but not all of the clients are, so you could end up on an awful project. People there say that there's a very openminded, transparent culture and it's not completely untrue but it seemed to me that you'd better share everyone's general opinion or keep quiet. The pay relative to how much you get billed out to clients for can be bad.

    Pros

    Office culture, technically sound team mates

    Cons

    I have never seen such an attrition before. Indian offices of thoughtworks are getting a big hit bec' of few serious issues.

    If you are an experienced professional, then you should make the resource manager, Project manager, business analyst, team lead, they guy who sits in the next table who has big voice etc., feel that you are talented. Your complete growth, onsite opportunities, good projects - depends on what they feel about you. Earlier the organization wasn't this judgmental. How can a resource manager who doesn't know neither technology nor you, can decide what you will be doing ? But they will take all the key decisions just by the magical discussions that they have with other so called key people who doesn't know what you are working on.

    The local politics is spoiling a good company. So many talented people doesn't get a good project that they deserve. So many just-talk-and-get what you want people keep getting the opportunities setting bad example for others to follow.

    Advice to Management

    Start recognizing talent. Stop living in opinions. Give opportunities to judge. Don't judge & give opportunities.
