I've never had any issues when I've asked to work from home for any reason. The company is pretty open to this mode of operation as long as you get your work done.
Ooyala was actually pretty good about letting you work remotely as practicable. Remote employees are brought into meetings via teleconferencing (google hangouts) and are able to contribute to the meetings and be included in decisions and direction. They were pretty flexible about allowing engineers to work from home as needed.
You have the flexibility, but everyone likes to be at office since the interactive culture is so great.
