Remote Work Experience
I have worked remotely on and off. For some time, back in 2014, I was freelancing and taking up remote projects. During the first half of 2019, I was working as a remote co-founder.
Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon on Wednesday rejected the "aberration" of remote work, which has become a popular alternative to in-person offices during the coronavirus pandemic.
Late last year, Deutsche Bank had suggested 5% privilege tax for remote workers since they harm the economy by not using enough public infrastructure. And just weeks later, announced permanent WFH twice a week for their employees 🤷♂️
"Privilege tax?!?!?" For public infrastructure? They mean for trains (rail) and buses? Or the capital expenditure of bridges and roads? 👂Bad take IMO
1. Member of a remote US-based team with project managers and software development done in Northeast (2), Midwest (3), and West (1) with the corporate offices and private data center in the South (Texas).
2. Consultant on two projects for the US Government. Adherence to regulations meant that work was to be done remotely with deliverables sent through secure channels.
I feel these are just click baits or people who worked in an office the majority of their lives, as we all know that due to the pandemic remote work boomed across the world, and it will probably become the norm for all entrepreneurs willing to start a new business from now on.
Yep. I've been working remotely for the past 10 years. In the past 4.5 years, fully remote, meaning, no office, at all, with a team distributed across 11 time zones.
It will be very interesting to see how employees react to return to the office when the rest of the world will be working remotely, in fact finding a remote job at this time is easier than in the office, so wondering how these decisions and speeches will affect the employee retention rate of these types of companies.
You personally could become a hater of remote work, but that does not mean that you close the door to each and every member of your cooperation, sounds very selfish and definitely resistant to the evolution.
There's an air of mystery about Luis 😮. They haven't filled their profile yet.
I think it's a fair presumption that GS sees more upside in going with the status quo (pre-COVID).
At least in the short term…
