Downsides of working from home: No team, communication is just horrible, endless calls that move nowhere

Upsides of working from home: Whiskey

    My experience: I'm alone at home. Almost no communication except an online scrum standup once in two days. Me working on something on my own without asking almost anything.

    Upside: can watch porn in the middle of a day. 🤷‍‍♂️

    The biggest adjustment for me is that I don't have access to all the great lunch options available at my downtown office. But the work itself is basically identical, as our team is already spread across three time zones in the US and two offices in India. Even when there's no pandemic, it's already a remote job, even when I commute to the office.
