Remote work has cons and pros. If you possess great time management, it can be for you. As for me, I can not make me work productively.

You are right, it has pros an cons.
I cannot say I had great time management, before I started remote path.
On a contrary, there were a lot of factors distracting me at the office:

  • A lot of people around me.
  • Open office.
  • The need to participate in corporate life.
  • No freedom in movement. (Yes, sometimes I need to work from caffee, bath or beach to be effective. 😏)

In my case - working remotely made me more efficient, giving a chance to choose the workstyle that is the most effective for me.

Very interesting to read more about you experience working remotely and in office!

You are absolutely right. I respect your point of view.
Sometimes It's very difficult to work, concentrate when lots of people around you and give the noise off, especially when you work at open space. It's also a problem for me, but from my point of view, if you want to polish up your soft skills that it's very important in our programming life, we should attend office from time to time. I stick to the belief that our world isn't for loners.
