We once had a fair and robust work from home policy. People were happy and production exceeded all expectations. All of that changed a few years ago. The executive level pulled everyone into the office for "collaboration"...a stupid stupid reason. Most of us who telecommuted full time were in offices with very few people. Now we go in and see no one. We talk to no one. The offices are old and filthy. It is demoralizing.
very difficult to get permission to do so. most upper management does this full time when they discourage it for all below them. upper management also often times never set themselves up appropriately in the internal system as working from home, but require those below them to do so and put tight restrictions on them as well. but overall the technology and ease of working from home is great. program needs some improvement starting with removing of politics.
I understand the work from home program is a great opportunity. Most of the people has to report to the office for a minimum amount of time throughout the month.
AT&T has the technology to allow for VPN access for employees who are assigned to remote territories which require work from home access.
They let me bring multiple monitors and a docking station home
Telecommuting is currently widely supported.
There is an active but not highly accepted (by local managers) WFH program.
Depends on your manager and department, but there was a push for it
Company touts work from home, but when you submit an approval request, they freak out. Best to just come up with an informal agreement with direct manager.
