Re: The Workplace

So the work from home deal I was supposed to start last year is finally rolling out for real at the end of April. I'm on the initial list to try it out, 4 days at home 1 in the office... I'm excited but also a little apprehensive. Anyone have experience working from home? Advantages/disadvantages?

The typical. A lot more freedom but you've gotta be motivated to actually work.

Re: The Workplace

Wow. 4 from home 1 from work? Personally I'd love that schedule to be swapped. Maybe I'm strange, but I like going into the office. I'm typically more productive and I like to see people during the day.

Re: The Workplace

I'm looking forward to having no commute, I have a 30-40 minute ride each way. Not seeing people won't bother me too much, and there's always the phone. My job is 90% based on phone/email as it is, no reason why it can't be done at home. For me I think it will work out well, less distractions and annoyances.

Re: The Workplace

Working from home could present MORE distractions. When in the office, you're (hopefully) in a work mode. When at home, it might be tougher to tell yourself "now I have to work hard for x hours.

Good luck, hope it works out well for you. My wife did database work remotely from home for a few years after she had the baby, worked great for us not having to get a babysitter/daycare so she could stay home.

Re: The Workplace

Yeah I can see that, but the office is chuck full of distractions too. I think it will just be a matter of getting used to a new routine and different kinds of distractions.

See that would work for me if I was driven by answering phones and emails, like jobs I have had in the past. My current job is building cost estimates for the Army, each one takes months at a time to do and I rarely get a call or email so basically I am self motivated which means if I worked at home it would be me playing Halo for three weeks then scrambling to finish a model in a week.

I'm in retail mgmt, he was shopping. Yeah I talked to him. I just basically said I hope that they get things worked out and to keep up the hard work. He said thanks, seemed pretty genuine and appreciative, probably doesn't get recognized a lot. I didn't really say "HEY YOU'RE BYRON WESTBROOK RIGHT?" or anything. I asked how his brother was doing he said he's been doing well. Didn't really wanna bother him past that.
