I have been working at Techedge full-time (More than a year)
Very smart, friendly and supportive managers and colleagues. The office atmosphere is very flexible, and there are almost always available meeting rooms available for team discussions if needed. We also go to happy hour and company dinner to bond (although this needs to happen more frequently!).
This is a great company if you know what you want to do, and management will generally be very open to provide you with the resources you need to get there. That being said, if you don't know, then your progress will likely be stagnant as there is no one there to guide you through every step.
Also, employee benefits is definitely a huge plus. The company pays for the benefits 100%, and nothing is deducted from your paycheck.
From the other reviews, internal communication has been a common theme. While it has improved significantly, there are still a lot of room for improvements. One of the biggest cause is the gap between manager and employees - we have
high-level managers and consultants, but nothing in between. They are working to hire another manager to help improve the situation, but is currently still work in progress.
For the company policy side, internal communication is also a present issue. Traveling for work also means you are completely on your own. Not only does the management put you in a "sink or swim" position, with little to no guidelines, but the compensations and policies are not clearly communicated or documented.
Advice to Management
While the flexibility is a plus to the employees and encourages more creativity, too much of flexibility in terms of management style will stall the growth of the employees. More feedback, frequent one-on-one, clearly communicating policies will help a lot.
I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Techedge (Southfield, MI).
This was a two step interview process. The first day was a very normal style interview where I met one on one with the manager (in this case I met with both U.S. partners). They gave an overview of what Techedge is and where they are trying to go and then asked the normal interview questions about my background, why I want to join Techedge, etc..
The second interview was much more interesting. Here they brough in multiple canidates, placed them in a room, and gave them a 6 hour long case study to complete, formulating an entire business model to pitch to the manager and another member of the Techedge Team. Very open ended and unstructured, which I believe really models the real world industry (From my experience).
