Is working from home the greatest perk of them all?

I don't make a whole lot of money but I get to work from home more often than working in the office and I find it to the best greatest thing ever. I literally LMAO when I hear about people bitching about traffic and spending 1 hour+ of their day, UNPAID just to get to cuck for their employer.

i work from home. its unironically the greatest thing ever. i do what the fuck i wanna do as long as i get my shit done. im litrally done most of my work in 2-3 hours and then just plan my day out what im gonna do (gym, go hiking, etc).

>> No.13287044

Unironically the same. I started a business right after leaving college and its all I know. Work in my home office, no commute, exercise in my workout room, watch an anime. Go out for lunch avoiding peak traffic times if I feel like it. Took a 3 month vacation to another country and worked remotely. Its not a bad life.

I work from home and have done so for the last year or so

it's pretty comfy but it bleeds into everything else you do so it's hard to have real downtime

the reason why it's the best thing is that i dont have to listen to some fat eunice or bertha tell me about their miserable fucking problems or have to run into someone i dont want to talk to in the elevator and have to talk about the fucking weather. god damn i love this shit.

Love it. Supposed to work normal hours, but I'll just get what I need to done and answer the phone if needed. I've worked weeks from deer camp.

Don't need to get dressed and commute in the morning. Get to hang out with cats all day.

The added perk is I travel a ton for my job, all over country, so that breaks any monotony of working at home.

What kind of entry level remote jobs can you get your hands on if you're willing to work for mediocre wages and don't have much in the way of CS skills? I'm living at my parents place with almost no rent after graduating and I'd like to use that as an opportunity to build up savings.

Working from home is god tier, as long as you have enough self awareness and discipline to not fuck off for too long.
You don't have anyone breathing down your neck making sure you get work done, which can be good and bad depending on your personality.
The best part is being able to get outside and enjoy some time to yourself to recharge when getting too stressed.
Delicate balance of time management and motivation, but absolutely the greatest when successfully managed.

nobody actually "works" at home. the longer you work from home, the less work you actually do. At some point I was literally not doing ANY work at all, like 2 hours a week tops.

Fucking this. But I guess if you work in a 100% remote company it should be better because measures are taken in order to minimize those problems.

I think a good middle term is about 2/3 days a week working from home. You still get some socialization going and you still save some commuting time and work without distractions.

But yeah, even if you're the most hermit introvert person you'll eventually feel the effects of lack of socialization.

I don't recommend remote jobs for any kind of entry level position. You can learn more if you're physically in a place with a decent supervisor/mentor. But assuming you have 2-3 years of GOOD experience, then go fetch those remote gigs.

It should also be mentioned that those kind of gigs usually require some kind of experience already.

In a similar way to the thread that appeared a bit ago about how many hours a week people do actually work (the mean was below 20 hours a week for sure), you can also see that when working from home (in which you can only evaluate results unless you're sadistic and time track your employess) people also usually work not even 20 hours a week.

My question is, why in the flying fuck do we still accept the 40 hour work week as a standard in 2019? We should fucking already have 20 hour work weeks as a socially acceptable standard.
