Well the taxman’s been informed so I don’t see why I can’t publicly say that I am currently joining ThoughtWorks. The first day of the two week induction was today. One of the most interesting things was that the induction was the same as that you would get at most reasonably-sized IT companies. Probably the major difference was that (as advertised) the attendees, while sharing the same broad spectrum of IT employee quirks, were noticeably more… well, intelligent than those at other companies I have worked with before.
People had views, were informed, had opinions; however they were also able to discuss, reason and compromise which I think is much rarer.
