    Pros

    Teleworking, work life balance are positives.

    Cons

    They are trying to reduce teleworking, work life balance only applies so long as it's not inconvenient to management (it's never convenient). City wage tax.

    The fact that OSD will only give funding in 2 week increments should be a clue that there is something fundamentally wrong from the top to the bottom.
