Working From Home is going good?
Is productivity level is increased or decreased?

I am fed up of the weekend works and also anytime call.

    Worst thing for productivity, I hate everything about it. I don't understand the people that like it.

    @Elyz I miss socialising more and coffee breaks. I don't find any impact om Productivity.

    @F1973 guess it depends on the nature of the things you work on. My team pretty much pair-program everything so that's a bit annoying to do remotely

    @Elyz My job is to talk to people and make decisions. I have been spending more time on Zoom than anywhere else.

    So interaction is surely time consuming and not being in same room affects a lot the way we make decisions.

    But then I internally take care of my productivity.

    I get your point too. It must be different and difficult for a dev.

    Weekend work and anytime calls just because WFH? You're doing it wrong.

    People conflate multiple things...

    - I work from home, but I work between 9 and 6 on weekdays. Not saying I'm above putting a little extra hours if something have to be done, but it's just this - extras. You can totally get exploited on-site too if you're soft-headed... it's not because of WHF.

    - Isolation and socialising deficits are an effect of the pandemics, not of WHF. For me working from home allows me to actually spend time with my family and friends, and I was perfectly happy about it when I was with them (before everything was blocked again).

    - Let's be honest, commuting culture was way from being sustainable anyway (especially without a massive disinvestment from public transportation).

    so what you're saying is that your boss could not find the courage to try to exploit you when you were there in person, but finds it easier now.

    oh, and btw, you allowed that to happen.

    Productivity is basically in the toilet since I started WFH. I have ADHD, and it really helped my focus to have a sort of context separation between work and home. When I was physically in the office, I was in work mode. When I was at home, I switched out of work mode.

    But now that I'm working from home, sitting right next to my gaming PC, the context separation is gone and it's really tough to achieve the same focus I did in the office.

    I do, however, stick to normal working hours as much as possible. I haven't worked a weekend yet and I've only gone outside of the normal 9-5 hours a handful of times while working remote.

    looks like the place to recommend CGP Greys "lockdown productivity" again (sry). applies well for dev work independent of pandemics - I guess most of you know most of the stuff already, but I found it well presented (and just 11mins ;)
