Cutting an hour of commute out? Saving shit tons of money on fuel or tickets? Being able to get out of bed 15 minutes before start of work, pull on pants and then work? Naah, who would want that?


A competitor of ours announced last month they expected everyone back in the office (not just Client-facing employees) full-time two weeks ago starting in July. The past two weeks have been a deluge of people handing in their notice, including some of their best and brightest engineers we’re more than happy to poach.


My office ran a poll on home working vs office working. Some 94% of us chose to work from home. So of course we’re going back to office working from September.


My boss did a straw poll on how often we’d be in the office going forward. There were a lot of 1 or 2 days a week. I was like “quarterly”.


Perhaps we got lucky with timing but the lease for our office is up at the end of the year and they decided to not renew it and in doing so, all employees are now full-time work from home. I will say I couldn’t be happier about it! They are providing desks, monitors, chairs, laptops – everything we need for a proper home office.
