Assuming you had the choice where to work from after the pandemic.. What would you choose (and why)? [poll]

@vidister it’s a bit hard how do you classify datacenter work ? Is that still remote or office etc. Personally fully remote would suck I do like to see an other person once in a while but not everyday. But it also depends a lot on the office if I have my own office with a door that can be closed it’s a lot less shitty to work there then one big open office thing.

@erikk @vidister same here. Full remote, unless I want to have fun with hardware.

@vidister if you can create your own office. It can be awesome.

@vidister because I do not waste any time commuting and I no longer have to go to the post office after ordering some thing. Time saver over all. Also I could go on vacations and probably stay there for longer if I took my laptop with me

@Bobo_PK @vidister Our secretary at the office receives our private packages without any complaints and notifies us by mail :-D I find that to be a good time saver as well.

@ollibaba @vidister It can be tricky to transport that with your bike and work is about 3 times further than the post office

@vidister I found that office work helps me to concentrate on the work, and to separate work from leisure time. And the company takes care of all the equipment at the office (including good chairs and tables), whereas at home I have to do that myself.

Requires a good, separated office with a door, though. No open-plan office, please.

Also, I want to be able to do _some_ home office without any hassle. And occasional "office at the beach" would be nice, too :-)

@vidister I like to see people and I think it's valuable to actually meet your coworkers but I also want to be remote at least some of the time.

@vidister I started working fully remote* spring 2019, almost a year before the pandemic opened remote work for most people, and I don’t think that I regretted working remote ever since. It helps me a lot having my own pace, work when motivated and rest if needed. I cannot imagine going back to an office/non remote job.

*fully remote as in I manage my own professional lab, with my equipment, where I can work when and how I like. Also working for who I want. I can imagine, that having this is a huge privilege and I try to share that privilege (the lab/resources) with other people.

@vidister I have been working full remote for years, and usually have 1-2 days a month in the office, and sometime travel to the DCs far far away, but that is the most productive work for me...

@vidister Most remote is my preferred option - its sometimes useful to create concepts together and do workshops. But most work is more comfortable to do remote

@vidister

Full office is not productive enough for me, full remote will not happen because there are tasks which cannot be fulfilled at home (sample production, test rig checking,...)

Therefore I try to work remote about 3-4 days and the other days I'm in the plant.

And no, I really don't miss the so called "Flurfunk", absolutely not.

@vidister 90% office. I need some background noise to work properly.

capitalism, work, pandemic, poll 

@vidister Depends on how long the commute takes. Given that I live quite close to the office right now, I'll probably go there more often.

@vidister i like to work remotely, also to mesh Better with family. Also commute is mostly waste of life and bad for the environment too

@vidister Three days ago I would have said full remote, especially since it gives you flexibility to travel and stuff, but I have to admit talking to your colleages face to face _is_ nice(r)

capitalism, work, pandemic, poll 

@vidister Close to fully remote, I enjoye being in the office and meeting people every now and then. And the coffee is better there. Like 1-3 days per month or so.

Currently I need stable internet and have semi fixed time slots to work in, but I did realy enjoye working from close to anywhere when I didn't. With the pandemic getting less serve I realy hope at least a part of the digital nomad lifestyle comes back, but I fear this will take some more time :/

@vidister can't work from home in social services 😅

@vidister My ADHD makes it basically impossible to do work-at-home unless I completely center my life around work and I'm not about that either. Then again "office" here means "a dedicated metal and physical (head)space to do work uninterrupted" and an open-plan """office""" is that as little as my bedroom is.

@vidister hey, hello, do U know, there are some people, which have to work *without* any office !
I don't like the synonymous office = work.
People without office, they are only playing around ?
