I couldn't imagine enjoying software monitoring my every movement and "amount of activity per day" - especially as a Software Developer/Engineer! A great deal of our working time is spent physically inactive but mentally contemplating things, or writing on a whiteboard. It's just not possible to measure our productivity by hours of mouse movement or lines of code written per day. I would have quit within a few days as well.

Yup it's kind of mind-boggling that there is such little trust between a employee and employer for it.

Which is instantly a red flag for me if I know that they employ such time tracking software.

I would instantly assume that it is a low wage work because of lack of trust in the employee.
