Remote work

Remote work set-up is good.

You get to be with your family.

You get to save a lot on rent, commute and overall high cost of living.

You could do deep work. Tuning out all the notifications is easy. You could focus on getting things done.

Remote work set-up is bad.

You don’t get to meet your team-mates regularly.

Building trust takes a longer time.

You’re not fully engaged with the company.

Brainstorming with your colleagues is not seamless. In office, you could just walk up to their desk and ask for their suggestion.

Hybrid work set-up is the way. We need the flexibility to do “deep work” from home most of the times as well as to meet our team every couple of months.
