Around half of the workforce is remote full-time (myself included). So working from home is not in any way treated like a problem or hinderance, it is just standard operating procedure. Even people who do work in the offices often don't have other team members in the same office, so effectively most of us are remote from our colleagues. Therefore we all communicate and work effectively from wherever we are and we have the tools to do that.
Company allows work from home
Most positions offer WFH benefits.
The culture supports remote work well- heavy usage of chat (IRC) and video calls (Vidyo... same tech behind Google Hangouts). Management is generally based in an office, but that's not always the case. The company will gladly ship basic accessories (mice, keyboards, monitors, headset, etc) to help make it work better, and allows employees to expense things like desks and chairs... good ones too, not just the cheap stuff at OfficeMax.
65% of the workforce works from home, however, the company seems to be driving people towards the offices. And more so, some of the newer upper management frowns on employees that are more local to the offices choosing to work from home, even on occasion.
