    Pretty good

    Applications Developer (Current Employee)

    ProsI primarily telework for TechFlow so I don't get a front row seat any politics that may occur at the main office. Some other reviewers mentioned management issues, and that's something I really haven't experienced, probably because I'm not physically at the main office to witness any of this.

    Since TechFlow has a lot of telework employees, the company meetings and conferences are nicely set up to accommodate them. Most employees at the main office are very accommodating to telework employees, making it very easy to work together with co-workers at the main office.

    As a telework employee, work hours are flexible, although, you still have to be present for meetings. Most meetings are in west coast time, which doesn't bother me.

    Training is encouraged and paid for. Maybe it's me, but I've always found that management is very eager to listen to employee's comments and constructive criticism, even for telework employees.

    I've worked on two major projects while I've been here. The first one had a horrible project manager who stressed out about everything and could never say no to the customers. He didn't last very long at TechFlow, and either quit or was laid off (I'm not sure what happened to him). The next project I've worked on has been a million times better and seems much more organized and peaceful. I've concluded that the discrepancies between the two managers is not reflective of the company as a whole. However, if the company had let the bad manager stick around, then maybe I would feel differently about it.

    ConsTechFlow is still trying to find their signature project management methodology. Every project is run slightly different, because in the past, at least one project on delivery was a disaster (due to a customer/developer miscommunication) and another project severely ran past the deadline. This has caused TechFlow to lose the bid for a major contract recently.

    Anyway, as a result, upper management has been really antsy about running new projects and following new project methodologies to a T.

    But TechFlow is still getting new contracts, even if they lost the bid for a major one recently. I'm not particularly concerned with my future here at the moment, and they have definitely shown that they can change things at the drop of the hat. TechFlow aren't like other companies that I've worked for where the managers refuse to change anything and are running everything into the ground. They are instead much more west coast style, very fluid kind of company. This can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on your tolerance.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Techflow is a company where you work day in and day out but cannot grow.
