      The only place I've worked where I'm treated well and with respect. My concerns/feedback are always taken into account. Thoughtworks places a high priority on mental health and supporting people through tough times instead of hanging them dry. I highly recommend working here if you want peace of mind.


      I honestly can't think of any....maybe the company can work on improving sales? Thoughtworks doesn't place a high priority on "profiting" as much as it focuses on "maintaining a sustainable business". While I find this HIGHLY admirable, it does place the company in tough spots during recessions. However they've only ever done layoffs in SUPER rare cases (maybe 3 times total in its existance) and still take care of those folks after the fact.

      Property Manager

      As a leasing agent for two years, I then worked my way to assistant manager for t 11 months. Then, to a property manager position, nine months into my new role as manager, I was terminated, with no warning, completely unexpected. How do I explain this undeserving action and embarrassment in an upcoming interview without any risk in the decision-making of my employment with the company I am interested in? I hope I am relaying this in a way that is understood.
