Software AG provides a variety of Telework/Work from Home options and currently half of our work force partake in these arrangements.
Most employees work from home. Great benefit.
While the company's employee handbook states that an employee who lives more than 50 miles from an office has the right to work from home exclusively, it becomes up to the individual manager. I've seen good employees who were hired with the understanding they would work from home 19 out of 20 days per month then be told they had to make a 100-mile one-way drive twice a week.
Varies with team/manager but it's possible, at least 1 or 2 days a week.
Very understanding and flexible about working from home.
Excellent for me. My manager "gets it". Not true for all departments. Because I'm not wasting time sitting in traffic, I can work extra hours, as needed, without feeling burned out. The virtual conferencing tools are very good.
