  • Why is it that working from home is harder; assets, distractions, personal bias? 👀 Curious, because it's mostly computer work, right? I guess we really never get a really clear picture on how it really works based only on reports, documentaries and movies... 😅
  • Collaboration is not as direct. You need to call, setup meetings etc. to discuss the smallest things. Very inefficient. Normally, you'd just drop by the guy's cubicle or office to iron out all the little things that get in the way. I experience it everyday now, it's definitely not the same working from home especially for highly collaborative projects. I work in a chip design lab by the way. We are definitely slower than our normal pace.
