re: Remote Work and Your Experience VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

From my experience I would give 3 star 🌟 rating for working remotely.

Merits

  1. Work in PJs 😋
  2. Work late night and wake up late. 🌃
  3. Personalized room/desk setup 🖥️
  4. Listen to music with/without headphones 🎧

Demerits

  1. Traffic noise (my house is adjacent to main road of the city) 🚙
  2. Dog barking (my pet dog usually bark wherever he sees a dog) 🐕
  3. Other noises like family members watching television, something is cooking in kitchen. 📺
  4. Slow internet connection 🔗
 

I agree about the ability to make your work environment your own is a strong merit. I have most of the demerits you mention taken care of, however I do have family at home and sometimes this can be a bit noisy. Good point.

 

Hi Yashu, I live in a fairly quiet neighborhood and also have the nicety of fast internet via fiber at 150Mbs. I am not sure where you currently are located but in the United States in most locations that are not completely rural, there is usually a decent connection. The one thing I've noticed sometimes is if I need to use a VPN, then things, of course, are going to be slower.

As far as the noise from my family at home, that one is not really resolved, I do have a separate room for my home office though and it's known not to disturb me if I am working.

Not sure if that helps you at all, but I found that I needed to communicate with my Wife and children that even though I am at home I am working and need to be left alone to do what I need to. For me there needed to be that understanding.

Internet connection problem can be still resolved easily, but getting a noise free life at work is impossible. 😂
