Are you more productive or less productive working from home?

    Less.

    There is way more distractions and endless teams meetings taking me away from the work, plus I would just lock myself in a room at the office and get shit done in peace if I had too.

    More.

    I had a little down for 2 weeks where I couldn't get anything done but overall, I'm getting stuff done faster and especially more high-quality than usually.

    @C0D4 lol that's weird, it's exactly the opposite for me :D

    @nitwhiz more distractions = kids + wife and a lack of room to lock myself in and just get on with everything.

    I'm finding myself working longer hours and getting less done.
    Plus since working remote any team interaction is a call anyway, easier to explain things that way but is daunting when the calendar has days where it's just meetings, literally 8 hours of meetings.

    There's a down side to being the longest serving member of the team who's involved with everything, you are dragged back into everything.

    I am a freshly (almost) graduated student with no family or siblings except my parents . Previously my internships would require me to commute for 4+ hours overall , sit in an office for 9 hours in front of a laptop when i could get the same stuff done just as fine via home.

    Working from home would count as a leave and it sucked. At the end of the day i would be just traveling via metro, eating through machines , reaching home , shitting with difficulties , going back to bed and waiting for the next day to fucking start. No gym/exercise, no family time, no good food, no relax nothing.

    @C0D4 This is my life. Longest team member who knows the product and every interaction is a meeting and no room to lock myself out.

    Only difference is I am not married or have kids. Instead I live with Parents so kind of same.

    More productive. Got lots of stuff done quickly, coz office had more distractions in general. But however, currently in burn out phase, so 2-3 weeks of difficulty in shitty and passing out quickly.

    @C0D4 @F1973 Wait... I think I'm coming up with something... Like a headache with pictures... An idea!

    Why couldn't you guys put Floyd's parents with Coddy's children (and wife) together? That way, they can do their own thing and you could work!

    It's a win-win!

    @F1973 for me it was gurugram but judging by the tech hotspots in india,i might end up in Bangalore someday too

    @C0D4 Same. Job security is good. Salary growth for me sucks.

    @Jilano Ummm seems like a plan. They be happy managing each other and we get busy being productive..

    @2Large I know. I don't want to be in Bangalore but just as you mentioned, luck might push us there some day.

    More. much more.

    I changed my work hours, so I work after the kids are down for the night. Also - office ppl don't call me for help as often, so I can actually code and think in peace.
    Work fron Office is insane - I sometimes have a queue of ppl waiting for me to help them. Full Days where I can't get my work done at all...

    Not even less, just not at all. It's my comfort zone and I always have an 'i can do anything I want here' setting when I'm at home and that makes that I get distracted insanely easily when working at home.
