I'm never going back to the office. My productivity has never been as good as it's been at home.

As a researcher, working remotely has been a dream—no drive-by meetings while in the middle of deep work, starting the day early to end early. For team projects, there are times when collaboration and meetings occur more often, which can keep you glued to the screen but be honest, I've learned to be strict about scheduling time for myself. Take your walking breaks, make your lunch, stretch and grab a snack run the errands you need the same way you would have while in the office, and don't fear if you appear away as long as the work is being completed well. Being remote shouldn't be a sentence where you are chained to your desk.

You have to have a dedicated space for work, even if it's just a corner of the kitchen. When you sit down at your desk you need to put on the blinders so to speak and give it 100%, or you will find yourself drawn towards any number of household projects or distractions that come up. I highly recommend noise-cancelling headphones and if you'll be on the phone much, a hands-free device. Makes a big difference in your ability to type quickly

Even if you are working remotely, you still need to be in constant contact with your team. It's the only way we can get things done because our corporation has so many locations, so we need to update each other regularly. You will need to be able to drop what you are doing, tackle a more emergent problem, and then go back to the first one without breaking a sweat. If you can do this, you'd be an asset to my team or any other

Remote work is not an excuse to blow off your responsibilities. It takes a different kind of discipline to stay on track while being away from managers and supervisors

it's a blessing and a curse, but overall I think working remotely has forced me to take a look at my bad productivity habits and improve them

Personally, I have never felt more productive than when I started working at home. I'm in a space that makes me feel comfortable, I get to section out my time the way that I like it, and I get visits from my cats every now and then!

As a manager, I’m 1000% more productive at home. There aren’t interruptions unless I schedule them. But you do miss the spontaneity that sometimes sparks The best ideas. So we try and do 2/5 days in the office

This varies so much depending on the job and the person. I have been working remote for 7 or 8 years now and I can't imagine going into an office again. My quality of life has greatly improved and I'm significantly more productive than I was when my introverted-self was forced to talk to people all day.

My productivity has increased since I've been working remotely and I think that of all my colleagues as well. The problem is that it has increased so much that sometimes we work overtime without noticing it.

I hated it and went back to the office as soon as I could. I know I'm in the minority, but I get so depressed with the isolation quickly. I love being around people way too much.

Im starting a new job but still employed somewhere else. I was trying to be open about staying at BOTH places. My current job won’t let me be part time because they don’t allow “set schedules”. Yet I am one of the only reliable and loyal employees in the department, and currently working a set schedule. So why will they not let me continue a set schedule but with different hours? This place is more focused on strict policies and not actually trying to work their employees and being flexible.

What’re the various agencies/components’ return to office dates (if announced)? And what’re the remote work policies after that date? I hear DOJ said their individual components will decide when exactly to return between mid-March and early May and some are offering a lot of remote flexibility even after then. Curious to hear more details though, both for specific DOJ components and other agencies!

How much weight would you give to an agency allowing permanent remote and not mandating days in-office every week, though it's open for when you need it?

If your agency requires coming back 3 days a week, and a recruiter from another offering permanent remote reaches out, does it sway you?

“An Indeed survey also showed why people are struggling to disconnect from their jobs. Almost 60% of employees who work from home said some combination of managers and clients makes them feel pressured to work more hours. Survey respondents who work on-site said their reason was slightly different from their remote colleagues’, with 43% saying their pressure was self-imposed.”

So tell me here… guesstimate your %.

I work from home and a solid 80% of the time I’m working after hours. 🆘
