20% Work From Home

Anyone have any idea who these 20% are and when will they find out? I thought Google was going to allow everyone to work remotely and I sold my house in Boston and moved back to Oklahoma. I am worried they are going to make me come in the office in September 1. Are they salespeople or can project managers work from home? Seems like a project manager would need to be in the office every day. Help!

the egos in power that remain need that onsite energy of the people to feed themselves. If they have no one to see them physically, they don't get that energy charge. Virtual does not give them the ego dope they need so my guess is that there will be a good number coming back. Hope they will be smart about it. Best of luck to you.

Some of the G-employees I know have already started side-businesses. Go figure productivity.

WFH extended. Since Google develops and thrives on tools that allow people to connect with each other remotely, I would think they would champion the WFH environment and be able to collect even more sensitive data on people plus their employees. If G-employee chooses to harass someone remotely, those communications will most likely be documented electronically which allows harassment/discrimination cases to be resolved more swiftly.

I'm sorry no answer but this sucks. You'd think Google of all companies would embrace remote work as the future.
