    I have been working at ThoughtWorks full-time

    Pros

    There is a decent amount of support and trainings available to learn offline and individually. But there are way more things to learn from the work and from my peers. Most of the time the projects are very interesting. They deal with complex problems holistically and use cutting edge technologies. The people are the best - high recruiting standards focusing on attitude and potential means that you get to work with people that's committed to the advancing of the craft. Many of them speak frequently at conferences and publish books.

    Every day is a learning day for me.

    Cons

    Travel can be taxing to work life balance over time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep building the learning and continuous development culture.
