Not worth it
Consultant (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London19 April 2018
Management is weak, and I think the Company has lost its way with the buyout. They prize themselves on diversity but I could never see it. Networking is key and only favourites get the work.

Best people i've every worked with!
Senior Software Consultant (Former Employee) –  Full Travel29 January 2018
I joined ThoughtWorks to be around A+ people and thats exactly what I got. The 100% travel is VERY hard after a couple years, especially if you have a family, but it's totally worth it. Smart, motivated, caring individuals. Driven to change the world, big a small.

Growing Company
Senior Manager (Former Employee) –  Chicago, IL19 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.
Pros
Pay, opportunity, ThoughtWorkers
Cons
Some areas were always insecure about what other areas were doing and their billing rate.

Simple awesome and magical.
Consultant (Application Developer) (Current Employee) –  Hyderabad, Telangana17 August 2017
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.

Terrible culture
Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London16 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.

Fun workplace and a competitive work environment
Application Developer (Former Employee) –  Tamil Nadu7 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.
