    Pros

    "Agile working" so you can get your work done where and when you need to. Yesterday I left work at 1pm so I could see my daughter's concert at school then I worked from home the balance of the day. I'm in a global job so some days I have early phone calls but I can take a long lunch or end my day early - - as long as I'm getting my work done (and I have a lot of work with high expectations), no one is checking up on me.

    Also, if you like to travel and can get in the right job, you can see places you wouldn't have seen otherwise.

    Cons

    Workload can be heavy at times and late changes to what is expected can cause last-minute rework. The company is big and spread all over the world so sometimes communications are difficult due to time zones, cultural and language differences.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The pace of change creates a lot of waste as people try to figure everything out. It would be wonderful to have fewer re-orgs and more time to make the organizations we already have just work better.
