Where IS the office, anyway?
I came to ADP out of a failed E-Commerce startup where I was the CTO. Into a (now defunct) acquisition. When that folded, I ended up doing "Agile" (what a joke) support. ADP is about as "Agile" as a hog-tied elephant.
But anyway, I ended up WFH, which was nice.
Roseland used to be five big buildings. Now is it what, 1 and a half? Or just 1? Granted, Bldg 1 is now a rat-warren of a cube-farm, with everyone on top of everyone else--- unless you're in the "Executive Suite," on the way to which they march all the VIPs through the rat-warren. (Ever notice--- the big, public spaces, are all bright and white, but go into the restrooms, and they look like they've not been remodeled since the 1980s!) I was never less productive than in the days I drove up there, stayed in the Marriott suites, and tried to work in that disaster-area.
From what I saw, Alpharetta was not much better, or worse.
Again, I'd get a Marriott "extended stay" suite and only go into the orifice for meetings.
WFH? Well, my constituents were as likely to be in Chennai or Hyderabad as in the US.
I could easily shuffle into my home office in my PJs to take a meeting in a place 10.5 hours later than where I am. And then to deliver a report, due at 8AM US Eastern for a 9AM meeting.
I was a Senior Technical Project Manager, so senior that I had to report to Senior Directors, lest I out-rank my manager.
I had a pretty good guy I worked for earlier-on, but he did such a good job he got laid off. I then got shuttled to a disaster of a career-climbing woman, who made unwelcome advances.
When VERP came out, and I (barely) qualified, I jumped at it. Like 3rd day.
My manager was surprised.
