If firms go exclusively remote, I have zero reason to remain living near “home office”. Likelihood we’ll shift to that model, and can live wherever?

And I want to clarify, that they will adjust your salary not because they are greedy bastards, but because of internal fairness

Agree but some companies still may require you to be in a region. Even my pre covid 100% remote job I have to be in office sometimes.

Potentially, but your salary will most probably be adjusted to your tax area. However, it’s not necessarily a bad thing if your net VS cost of living will improve

Agree with VP HR 1. They won’t let you pull and SF adjusted pay, and live in TX or a low COL state.

I’m hoping we can push for an office optional model, as it would mean lower rent, better lifestyle, and a lot less stress with increased productivity - not to mention the positive climate impact!

If you work remotely where you are doesn't matter. The only thing to consider is time zone changes.

Shared workspaces? If I were self employed, I’d be happy to WFH in my sweatpants. Don’t see why people pay $$ to commute, wear headphones and sit next to the Nespresso machine in a public space?

Since we are all WFH, some of my fellow countrymen have headed home and work US hours. Anyone doing this? I know technically not supposed to but these are weird times.
