Huh... Seems like my company is going to implement flexible office/home hours even after lockdown is lifted.

Not sure whether they're trying to rip us off, because we're going to use office space less and they will pay less accordingly, or whether it is really a an improvement because allegedly many people here responded that they would like to have such a flexible option rather than being glued to the office space.

    Generally, I feel like the choice to 'rip off' employees really isn't connected to flexible work location. At least not usually.

    Did you really just edit your post to add "Huh..." in the beginning? 'Cause I love it.

    @rutee07 Huh... I don't think so, no.

    People in my company all voted to keep working remotely - I was the only dissenting one. I'm not extremely happy.

    @rutee07 no, I've fixed some mistake :D

    @F1973 TBH, I was one of those who voted for "sometimes at home, sometimes at office" choice in a survey as well. It's just pretty surprising they are going to actually implement that. And I'm not talking about some small local company. It's a pretty big multinational software company.

    @rutee07 oh, I've remembered: I've added "whether" at the start of the second part. That was the edit.

    @F1973 same here: WFH is till the next year at minimum.

    I'd prefer to leave specific personal information private :)

    @F1973 no chance we're working for the same one. Different countries for sure. It's just a very similar situation almost everywhere.

    However... This company does have an Indian office...

    @F1973 because office is convenient at times. Like for meetings and for using proprietary equipment which is impossible to take home.

    Also air conditioners and general "work" atmosphere, compared to a swine house mess at home.

    And chitchat with colleagues and coffee barista is not that bad.

    @msdsk Yea, it just doesn't work for everyone. I liked having the physical separation of what happens where

    @F1973 also, I don't hate human interaction by itself. It's just a very thin line between a pleasant interaction, okay interaction and barely tolerable one. Also, I get tired of interaction pretty quickly.

    @F1973 unfortunately free coffee is just awful so I take non free one. Bonus is instead of staring at a machine I can look at and talk to a pretty attractive girl who makes said coffee.

    @F1973 online. Real-time talking is a no-go :D

    @TheBeardedOne Is that why we always do it in your "dungeon" and not your apartment?

    @iiii I feel you. It usually gets annoying when they open their mouth.
    BH the way, your stats can't get below zero without cheating, so it's all good.

    @F1973 but there could be a different "no".

    Like, just "No" or "No! Get away from me, you pervert!"

    @F1973 basically what I mean is there could be a worse outcome than a neutral "no" which is an equivalent of no attempt.

    @F1973 considering we haven't seen each other for 4 months, it will be a horrible idea. No exposure to back at least something, considering very probable lack of common interests all together.

    @F1973 fair enough. But not enough to go further than a chitchat, I guess.
