but we don't tell our managers:
1) Constant interruptions, everything is an emergency when you can just walk into someones office and destroy the work schedule deliverables for a week with constant nagging.
2) Regional concerns. No F'in way I am working in California. You offerred me the job, but I am not paying those taxes or those rents. I will work from IOWA thank you or find someone else.
Besides, Californians are insane.
3) You want me to work where? Downtown Chicago? I don't think so. I can't personal carry and I don't feel like being robbed.
Same for the recruiter who tried to convince me making 70K a year was "Competitive" for a job in Detroit. These people look at me with a straight face and say "Detroit is a wonderful opportunity with beautiful surroundings. It is simply the opportunity of a lifetime."
No Thanks, and I currently make twice that in Scottsdale AZ minus the bombed out buildings and the political establishment that sold its population out a long time ago.
Keep voting the way you do all you people in Michigan. Its just working out grand for ya during the past 20 years hasn't it?
But the whole thing is stupid.
Working in a global company like Yahoo with servers in VA with operations in Washington and Bangalore, what is the diff if I work at home?
I work remote anywhere I go for the real work I do and I can't avoid it even if I report to a specific office location.
This article is crap.
The real issue here is the reduction of work force without declaring layoffs for this sort of thing. The Yahoo CEO did the same thing.
Instead of announcing layoffs, which would hurt the stock, they terminated the remote work program so they can force people to quit.
Total and COMPLETE CRAPOLA.
