2016

"I have beers with several senior managers a month and they have helped me greatly in my personal development."
Graduate, London
"I haven't had any mentors that are 'managers' in the TW context. I have a sponsor and colleagues to help provide advice and support. I have also received probation feedback from other people and the development team, which was helpful."
Experienced, London
"Incredibly accessible. I would not be able to tell they were managers if I didn't know them. Always open for a conversation. Feedback is encouraged and we seek it often. We are assigned sponsors as career mentors and I meet regularly with mine to discuss current projects and what steps to take to develop my skills."
Graduate, London
"They're very approachable and send regular communications."
Graduate, London
"In TW we don't really have managers but the leading team is very open and always available to speak. We are all ThoughtWorkers and the structure of the organisation is pretty flat."
Graduate, London

2015

"From my experience good work will always be recognised and praised, and there is a rich feedback culture. More experienced colleagues are always happy to mentor and help."
Graduate Consultant, London
"I have found that ThoughtWorks management are generally very accessible, and take a keen interest in what is going on in the company at all levels."
Graduate Software Developer, Manchester
"The manager does not have his own office, so he sits with everyone else in an open office, and is very cool to chat to whenever you need to."
Graduate Software Developer, London
"Every employee is encouraged to have a one-on-one meeting with a person from the management team to discuss their performance in the last year, what they want to focus on next and how ThoughtWorks can help them to achieve their goals. Also, you are given due credit when you do a great job. Although management can be very busy at times, so they can be harder to get hold of, they are approachable and ready to offer advice."
Developer, Manchester
"Management are very accessible as there is a very fluid, open working space where all levels and departments always interact."
Developer, London
"I find that everyone in ThoughtWorks is very approachable, and will always help you if they can."
Software Developer, London
"As it’s a flat structure, people are always happy to guide and give advice where needed. Giving feedback is part of the culture of the firm and people are always keen to improve. Internal information and the position of the firm on most matters is regularly shared and easily accessible to employees."
Quality Analyst, London
"There are fairly open communication channels here, and I find that anyone can speak to leadership."
Consultant Software Developer, Manchester

2014

"Monthly, we have regional leads communicate what is going on. They are also regularly in and around the office - they are like us, it is not hierarchical. The highest decision makers also try and communicate via regular open conference calls, etc."
Entry level, Manchester
"I'm on a first name basis with everybody, and I currently sit about five metres away from the head of the UK business - it's quite a flat management structure."
Graduate, Manchester
"Most of the management including the CEOs are very approachable and very supportive!"
Midlevel, London
"Managers are very accessible and approachable. I always felt comfortable and confident to ask for support, feedback and advice. Also, they tend to follow up after communications with instant feedback and/or recognition."
Entry level, Manchester
"The leadership team interacts very well with all employees at ThoughtWorks."
Midlevel, Manchester
