This time, let’s chat about remote work! :technologist::house::beach_umbrella:
Recently, some areas have been affected by typhoons and heavy rain, causing severe flooding in large neighborhoods and making commuting inconvenient. Many companies have implemented remote work from home.

What do you think about remote work? Do you like this way of working?
What do you think are the benefits and challenges of remote work?
Share with TiDBers how you spend a day working remotely from home!

PingCAP is also very friendly towards remote work. “PingCAP has been practicing a remote work culture since its inception. On one hand, a flexible work format can improve our work efficiency; on the other hand, we don’t want talent to be restricted by geographical limitations.”

I like remote work :grin:

They’re all pretty much the same, except that working from home saves commuting time.

I really like it. I can work remotely, take care of my family, and look after my child.

| username: ShawnYan | Original post link

Liking it is one thing, being able to do it is another.

@Joyz Long time no see~

Why do I like going to the office? :joy:

Of course, staying at home is comfortable, unlike commuting, and it’s also free.
You can work while watching TV.
You can also sleep in.

I like remote work because I can slack off without any scruples. At the company, I have to slack off secretly…

Long time no see, Teacher Shao’an!

They are all pretty much the same, sitting in front of the computer. However, working from home can avoid commuting issues, which is very comfortable.

This must be a household without kids, right? :grinning:

| username: 我是咖啡哥 | Original post link

I like being able to choose freely :joy:

:joy: To be honest, the company currently doesn’t like remote work.

| username: DBRE | Original post link

Don’t like it.

| username: xfworld | Original post link

In scenarios where work boundaries are unclear, remote work is not very suitable as it requires more time to discuss issues and delineate boundaries.

Currently, I can freely choose… Time is already managed very precisely, but it’s still not enough…

Remote work can save some commuting time, which can be used for reading or getting more sleep, and that’s really nice.

I still prefer working in a company, where a group of people work together and the efficiency is extremely high.

| username: LuckyBastard | Original post link

I like remote work, no need to commute.

| username: 昵称想不起来了 | Original post link

Yes, I like it. No commuting, saves time.

It’s not about liking it or not. But I still prefer the office, as it has more of a working atmosphere. I still want to keep work and life separate, even if it’s just in terms of the environment.
