A HR lady wondered why I want to work remotely at home. Why shouldn’t we IT guys do that?

zombiA HR lady asked me why I prefer working at home remotely to commuting among a lot of upset, distracted, disappointed zombies by subway every day?

Well, Working remotely and being an entrepreneur (not empolyee) means that both of us (employer and I) can save a lot of money, and a lot of time! Not seeing zombies means happiness, therefore I can do my work more powerfully, more accurate.

Commuting is wastig money and wasting time every day!

In short way: I do more for less money. Any questions?

As a sysadmin I have done many many many times that I woke up on the left side of the river, went across it and using ssh I administered servers on that side where I lived. That also was “workig remotely” … from the office. Why should not we work remotely? Sysadmins, developers, DBAs etc can work remotely because the characteristic of the positions.

Tools are available! For example watching a remote station can be done using TeamViewer, talking to other team members we can use skype. Where is the problem?

Please Do Think!
– Commuting makes us to be zombies!
– Commuting wastes time and
– a lot of money!
– Only the boss thinks that working centralizedly on office site is more effective.
