Why can't software engineers work from home most of the time? (2016)
Luckily, the firm was very casual when it came to getting in late, their culture could be described as "So long as the work is done". During a typical working day, most interaction with colleagues took the form of instant messaging, ticketing, or e-mail. Luckily for me, the company/my manager didn't mind if I occasionally worked from home. I only worked from home if I had an urgent reason to do so. I was hugely more productive at home, I maintained the communication in the same way as if I was in the office. If I had been allowed to work from home 3-4 days a week, my productivity would have, at the very least, tripled. I understand that there's obviously some trust issues associated with working from home.
