    Employee Ownership-everyone's ideas are welcomed. Trying new things encouraged. TechFlow has a culture where hard work and fun go hand in hand.

    Long hours and weekends are sometimes needed to get the job done

    Remember work life balance!

    Pros

    For those looking to start their career off, the diversity of technology (albeit this also includes legacy) and open opportunity is hard to beat. The development team is diverse and very experience. Everyone is willing to help you learn and be the best you can be in your field.

    Work flexibility is huge and there is a genuine concern for peoples family needs and schedules from management.

    Walking distance from Ballast Point Tasting Room.

    Cons

    If you don't ask, you don't get. The environment is not on a standard raise/bonus scale organization; there is not a promotion guarantee based on time. The focus is employee ownership and merit based. With all of that comes a "If you work hard you will be successful" attitude. If you are passive about what you want in your career its easy to stay in one spot. Hard to say if this is a con honestly.

    Benefits are lackluster.

    Some of the random fun stuff that makes an office lively has moved on with some staffing changes in the last few years, but there are employees actively working to change that which is a good sign for the future.

    Advice to Management

    The company is at a turning point with Rob Baum our CEO at the helm. It's hard to give advice to management right now as there is a lot of future potential that you can clearly see day to day from Rob and the management, but the coming year would be a tell.

    I would say keep involving the employees at the ground level as it will give new and innovative perceptions.

    Pros

    --Strong, ethical culture
    --Collaborative environment...very few games or politics
    --Get to work with smart people who embrace and are excited about innovation
    --Good 401K match and profit sharing through ESOP
    --Employee ownership

    Cons

    --While offset with other benefits, healthcare costs seem a little high for employees outside of California

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. The wind is in our sails.

    Pros

    - TF is doing a great job with all aspects of Employee Benefits.
    - Making positive strides to sustain a competitive advantage for employees.
    - Created the ESOP to acknowledge employees are important and make the company who we are!
    - Encourage employees to help grow the company
    - Open Communication
    - Overall, a great place to work and be part of a large team, dispersed across the USA.

    - While we depend on TF to keep our benefits attractive at the best cost, we need to engage our Congresspersons and/or Senators with suggestions to lower cost and improve Quality of Healthcare. Our current posture across the nation with all companies, isn't the best for employees. Sad but true.

    Cons

    No downsides from my perspective.

    Work life balance and positive culture with fun activities
    Cool new office space and outdoor walking trails
    Opportunities for growth and tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    Seeing negative comments about a company that I love

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. We appreciate all that you do to foster an open and collaborative environment. And a big shout out to our awesome CEO, Rob Baum. His passion and perseverance really shines through since coming back on as CEO.

    I have been working at TechFlow full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    We are not a number here.... we are a face to say hello to, a name to ask how the weekend was, a friend to hang out with. Such a fun group of people.

    Cons

    I feel that if there was Communication earlier between departments it would minimize stress, produce stronger knowledge of what's to come and allow another eye to review what mat have been forgotten. I have seen this in occurring ...keep it up... always room for improvement

    Advice to Management

    More company outings

    Pros

    Great people at all levels of the company - joining Techflow is like joining a family and everyone is supportive of each other.
    Interesting projects - I have worked at TechFlow for 2 years and get to work on interesting new technology including Angular2
    A great culture - coming to work is fun and there are always nights out and something for everyone

    Cons

    They tried to raise the price of subsidized sodas from 0.25$ to 0.50$ but the developers revolted and the price returned to 0.25$.

    Pros

    Growth is possible, but you have to know when to strike. A flexible work schedule allows one to develop their skills outside company time, while still maintaining a full-time work position. The new Scripps Ranch location has an open floor plan, so communication between team members has been increased. Benefits are good. Company recently shifted to an Employee-Owned company.

    Cons

    Company recently shifted to an Employee-Owned company, and there were some growing pains during the process. Communication between East and West Coast team members is sometimes lacking. People tend to forget that meetings scheduled at 9am EST is 6am PST... or 3pm PST is 6pm EST.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving towards Agile
