I'm glad you pointed out something that many people seem to forget when looking for remote jobs - not all remote jobs are created equal. It's easy to put on rose-colored glasses, thinking remote jobs are the key to happiness, but just because a job is remote does not mean it will be a good company/culture.

I've interviewed for several remote jobs that I found out were 70hr/week jobs or had bad culture, bad managers, etc. Which pretty much did away with the main advantage of working remotely.

 

Yes, exactly! I love the way you put it: "not all remote jobs are created equal".

I think it's so important that people (whether looking for remote jobs or not) vet the position and company. Since people think the remote lifestyle is glamorous, they are especially likely to skip the vetting step, when in reality I think this actually matters more for remote work.
