What insiders say about…
I work at my client which at the moment is a finance company in a team with other people from ThoughtWorks as well as the client. I get experience consulting as well as developing software. We often pair which means two people work at one computer which is great for learning, shared context and makes work more fun. I am often learning new things and working in technologies I haven’t used before which is great for keeping me interested and also relevant. Of course as a consultancy ThoughtWorks cannot to in control of everything at the client site, but they do everything they can to help me to be comfortable and successful. I have always had more senior people on my team to learn from and never had to work mandatory overtime.
The culture of ThoughtWorks is one of the main aspects of why I love it so much. ThoughtWorks has a flat structure and this is both during work hours and after. When I have been working in other states, people have always been keen to organise trips to local attractions and other exciting events throughout the week.

I don’t feel that I’m being managed or have a manager within ThoughtWorks. I just have people who I can go to for help with different things and support. I have a primary mentor as well as many other individuals who mentor me as less formally. I receive feedback and can request more at any time. I feel I am praised often and have access to a lot of internal communications. I can participate or at least attend most of the meetings held by leadership teams and have frequent status reports on many elements of the inner workings of the business. I feel I can ask anything of anyone in this regard.
ThoughtWorks University - spend 5 weeks in India being trained on agile software development practices, consulting skills, and social involvement
ThoughtWorks has a very flat structure which means you can change roles and learn the skills you want to learn without worrying too much about rank.
At the grad level they hire 50/50 male/female
Level up programmes working with Colleges in low income areas
ThoughtWorks is very passionate about this. The first project I was involved in was an app that teaches kids Yawuru language. ThoughtWorks is also very much involved in many other activities such as RapidFTR last year for Typhoon Haian victims in the Philippines
Particularly the new Melbourne office is amazing. It’s in the middle of the city and has beautiful views from the 23rd floor. There is plenty of room for events and lots of food and drink. There is gear always set up for the band to play and we can use a room for practicing. The dress code while at the office is casual.
I was really happy being able to get involved in a global movement within ThoughtWorks to understand and act on environmental issues. The focus is more on education and a larger scope than just ourselves though. I am a harsh critic on this issue as its one that I have come to understand deeply and I think there is a bit more which can be done but there is still lots happening to improve this all the time.Join us to bookmark!
