Developer (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – 20 September 2017
I worked as a software development consultant at for a year and a half for my first job out of college. Great place to work with smart people! I gained a lot of experience working on a wide variety of projects. Just be prepared for a lot of travel!
Senior Manager (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – 19 September 2017
When I was at ThoughtWorks it was a growing company and hiring many people. there were times when maybe the right person was not in the right job, BUT, everyone there was and is very smart. I learned a lot about application integration. Many of the people that I worked with in 2000 are still there today.
Pay, opportunity, ThoughtWorkers
Some areas were always insecure about what other areas were doing and their billing rate.
Strategy & Business Development (Former Employee) – New Delhi, Delhi – 15 September 2017
ThoughtWorks is a community of passionate programmers. My experience with them has been great. I worked in the Bangalore and Delhi offices in India, though i traveled extensively to offices in Pune, Chennai and Hyderabad as well. TW is serious about open source software and providing a fun and interactive work place. It is very global, allowing people to explore opportunities in different places.
Lot of opportunity to grow in various technologies and domain. Company is completely employee focused. Free food, complete freedom and full ownership. All air travels from grads to senior leadership. No hierarchy I worked, paired, argued, fought partied with folks who are double my age and 15-20yrs more experienced than me. Simply awesome! only problem you need to be really good at what you do to get hired.
Sales Executive (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 16 August 2017
ThoughtWorks' culture is pretty awful. They haven't grown for years and they're not likely to grow in the future either. It's necessary to lie on the way in about how much you care for the needy, only to find that nobody really buys into that when you join.
Application Developer (Former Employee) – Tamil Nadu – 7 August 2017
Perfect balance of work and fun. Being a hard worker is a nice to have but being a smart worker is a must have. Highly competitive work environment. Expected to be always willing to learn and develop using new technologies. Contribution to open source source projects is always supported. Customer is god but we should know when to push back and how to scope requirements, even as developers. Everyone is encouraged to pitch in ideas or suggestions in every facet of project delivery and not just stick to their role.
Great place that respects employees, culture and innovation
Lead Consultant (Former Employee) – Gurgaon, Haryana – 20 July 2017
If you want to learn Agile practices from the best then TW is the place to be. Very open company that respects it's employees and their views. Also the home to some of the best talent in the industry which constantly encourages you to work harder and smarter.
ThoughtWorks is a great place to work if you are passionate about bringing big changes in how software development is done. There software development practices are some of the best in the industry. Great place to start your career if you want to get exposed to best practices from day 1. But being a services company, you may not always be posted in a team where you like the work. But the company always encourages to ask for a shift if you are interested in something else.
Thoughtworks is a flat organization. There is no rules, everything happens on trust basis. No shifts, no overtime, no deadline(conditions apply :-P)
Every thoughtworker is passionate about technology. This is the best place to learn. You can work with the best people in the industry. Company promotes opensource contributions, also helps for your pet projects.
