I'd like to know how you get 2-3 days a week with no meetings...

I prefer it. If my people can get 2 hours of their lives back by not committing, and still produce quality work, then why not? Most of my team also have legit workstations at home too, so they are more efficient than in the office.

It depends on the person. Some are great at it and more efficient. Some slack off.

OP: my point exactly. I have a 27 inch monitor and a large desk at my house. I'm easily 50% more efficient myself. If my coworkers can get their stuff done and still be available as needed, I see no problem with it.

I could care less where and when you work as long as you make your deadlines and pick up the phone when I call (during your planned work schedule). If your work performance declines don't act butt hurt when I pull you back.

Haha I wish. 2 clients currently and almost all meetings are via phone/skype. Definitely wouldn't miss any in person meetings.

Depends on the person. Can they work responsibly? If not nope in the office all the time.
