I offer my teams to work from home 100% and I'm at bdo... what office are you at? Hell most of the time I'm not even in the same state as my office, and often not the same country. Life is too short buddy. If your quality of work speaks for itself no one gives a fuck where you work from if you're working.

Work from home is fine as long as you communicate ahead of time. If you simply decide to stay home without letting anyone know, that's not right, and that's not flex.

like

how are you supposed to find work from home when you're unassigned? that's the only thing I see wrong with the situation. plus, the way you say you "rolled off" makes me think you don't quite get how engagements/schedules work. you're done with the engagement when the work is done, not when your schedule says so.

Working remotely is frowned upon in the Miami office of BDO (courtesy of the RMP). As a matter of fact, anything that relates to you having a life outside of BDO Miami and not working 2,500 plus hours is frowned upon.

Neighbors dog started barking and before I could run to the other room he asked me if that was a dog barking in the background. I said yes and he says "so you're working from home today huh?" What are the odds I get in trouble for this?

Just say yes... BDO is flexible

You were unassigned so it's fine. Heck he would work from home too if he was unassigned.

What office?

^I do exactly that all the time - manager isn't equal to babysitter.. however there are managers still old school enough to raise their eyebrow and you just have to tell them to shove it or ignore the snark. If you get your shit done there's not really anything they can say about it

Sounds like Miami office needs some cultural changes, move west. Life is easy on the best coast.

Miami office has been needing a complete overhaul for more than a decade.

Any chance Miami office is in walking distance to south beach?

Which BDO office are you in?
