Not going to the office does not guarantee sanity.


It has been three years since I have been working remotely. This means that the time in which I have been doing remote work is now equal to the time I spent working in an office. Three years is not an eternity, but it has allowed me to formulate a few insights about remote work.



For me, the possibility of working remotely is the primary consideration when accepting or turning down a job offer. Remote work gives individuals a high degree of independence in the corporate-slave, capitalistic system. This freedom is more important than money, technology, company values, fancy perks, gaming rooms, or a gym in the corporate office. I do not want to make serious declarations, but I would probably have to be starving before I would be willing to go back to working full-time in an office.
