I'm a software engineer, and I've been working remotely for my entire career. I love the flexibility and autonomy that remote work gives me, but there have definitely been times when it's been hard to feel like I'm on an even playing field with my colleagues in the office.

I used to feel a similar way, but honestly, I do good for myself and I can spend plenty of time with my loved ones. At the end of the day, that's all that really matters to me and if my career is every so slightly stunted by this I'm happy to take that hit

I suppose I would appreciate that perspective more as a family man but I'm a bachelor atm so I guess I just don't get that kind of value out of working from home. Thanks for sharing tho!

What makes you think you're not on the same playing field? Is your work not as valuable?

I just feel like I don't have as much presence as other employees. I think I do good work but there's not always a face attached to that work, does that make sense?

Do you feel like your career is suffering because of working remote? Are you the only one there who does so? Maybe you could talk to some other remote employees and see if they feel the same way

i guess I can reach out to some other people and see what they think, thank you!

While I agree with your sentiment I would add that working remotely is also an opportunity for you to stand out via increased productivity and being available at flexible hours such as weekends. It's a give and take in my opininon
