This article presents data from a qualitative study of teleworking consultants in a European firm. We examine the 'gap' between the utopian visions produced by the consultants for the benefit of clients and the tales of isolation, disconnection, disaffection and cynicism we observed when clients were not present. The study highlights the power and politics involved in the diffusion of popular images of technology-enabled flexibility.
