1) if you allow remote (and don’t screw people over on it), you will attract top talent. Don’t be an idiot about it like these other company, they will feel the pain of this decision more acutely soon. 2) it’s just a branding and image game. So the real question is, how quickly could foreign markets catch up in perceived value?
