One Small Change

2016

"The grad programme is very focused on the professional services part of the business. I think it would be invaluable if, at the end of the grad programme, we could spend a month working with operations to get better insight in to that area as well."
Graduate, London
"I think having some structured learning resources or projects for when you are not working on a client project would be helpful. If you are new, you don't quite know what is going on and who to talk to. Any ways to ensure we use that time wisely would be helpful."
Experienced, London
"More shadowing opportunities for grads when starting a project."
Entry level, London

2015

"While ThoughtWorks University is an amazing programme, I feel that the trainees could benefit from a more structured approach to progression after returning."
Graduate Software Developer, Manchester
"I have found that not all the graduates coming back from ThoughtWorks University are assigned to a project straight away. It would be very beneficial if they had more senior support until they get assigned."
Developer, Manchester
"I feel that there could be more training opportunities after ThoughtWorks University."
Graduate Software Developer, Manchester
"Personally I think that there could be a more structured approach to graduates' first years as developers. Perhaps there could also be some more choice around sponsors, rather than being assigned someone."
Developer, London

2014

"I would like to do more of the training at ThoughtWorks University and less in the home offices beforehand."
Midlevel, Manchester
"I think getting graduates to shadow a few projects on a short term basis to gain a bit more exposure to different ways of doing things before placing them in a role, could be beneficial in regards to my experience."
