Not everyone is allowed to work from home, it depends on your work ethic (which makes sense). I think allowing more freedom to work from home would help employees to achieve a better work/life balance. They have been known to let people that were extremely ill over an extended period of time to work from home though.
You had to be working there for a certain amount of time to qualify, but it did not make up for actually coming in as there were certain tasks you could not complete unless logged in at work. This was to ensure you could not work from home regularly and that it be used for emergency situations only; however, upper managers could work from home as much as they pleased and did abusing the system.
Only certain people get to work from home, and that has to be limited to maybe a day or two a month. People are also not supposed to work from home when they're sick, which means they come into the office with terrible colds or the flu and get everyone else sick.
It's a very independent job where you need a lot of self-motivation and organization in scheduling.
Great flexibility, but even more accountability from management. Expect results or key performance indicators (KPI) to be high.
