bedawang329228dIndeed a mix of the two is best imo. While wfh makes me feel more productive, that feeling doesn't last long, because I also feel trapped in my bedroom/desk for appr. 16 hours a day/night
ItsNotMyFault3434228dI prefer working in the office but i really hate commuting to/from the office.
didid3228dboth are good. but i prefer remote, more flexible.
vane10677227dI prefer working remotely. I like to cook my meals and I’m used to cooking while working or doing other stuff just to think trough the problem I need to solve.
I’m not tired when I finish my work I just close lid on certain hour and that’s it. I have dedicated laptop just for work.
I don’t need to waste my time commuting.
I’m used to work only using laptop yet I have dedicated space for work or I can lay down on the floor, on my bed or sit in the kitchen, or watch tv and work, go outside and work from there.
I really liked pre pandemic times when I could work from whatever place on the planet I wanted, now it’s more complicated with all those dynamic restrictions.
My work is more task oriented, I have tasks and know what to do, my team is distributed across different cities, countries, and continents so if I go to the office it’s mostly to chat with people I don’t work with directly.
I work like that 7+ years and I don’t think I would be able to work differently right now.
When I worked in the office I came back tired and needed to rest before I do anything, people were literally sucking my energy, now I feel I have twice much time.
Fiftyseven687227dI do a bit of both - mostly I work from home, and go in a day or two a week. It helps that the office is nice and has a good coffee machine. I'd probably be fully remote otherwise.
EmberQuill3847227dRight now I'd say I prefer the office, but if I lived in a place with a spare bedroom or something that could be used as a home office, I'd be much more comfortable working from home. Right now I have my work laptop and gaming PC sitting on the same desk; having no logical separation between work and entertainment other than which screen I look at is destroying my ability to focus.
I think the ideal is to allow flexibility. Let people work wherever they want as long as they can prove they are still productive enough to keep up.
