So, watching your spawn when you are supposed to be working is what you get paid for these days?

What, you think she doesn't have a full-time nanny too?

P.S. It would save a lot of repeats if we'd stop linking to copy-and-paste "news" sources like Business Insider, Forbes, etc.

Awkwards...  Here's an idea, build a daycare/nursery for your entire company and not just for yourself, you entitled ****.

Yeah, it's way more productive to be on Fark at work.

That's what they have at the SAS Institute HQ. Then again SAS isn't run by raging morons.

I was talking about the disgruntled remote/teleworking employees.

Definitely a repeat. Heck, even the headline was almost exactly the same.

You almost had me worried for a second that my Greasemonkey script had failed to remove a featured link, but then I realized that featured links don't have comments. Hehe.

I dunno.  Have you seen the prices on SAS licenses lately?

I do hear it's a nice place to work.  I've got a friend/fellow SAS-monkey working for them.  The pay isn't great, for the market, but the perks are awesome.

Or parents could just raise their own children.  Why is there even the concept of entitlement everyone should assist making parent's lives easier?  If you have kids you should be independent and stable enough to spend time with them.

/Douche move on her part, though.

She gets an on-site nursery, and (maybe with enough public shaming) so do the grunts, but there's still teh commute-time tradeoff.  To afford housing, at the wages being offered, most of these employees are going to have to spend 2-4 hours per day in the car.  That's 25-50% MORE family/kid time gone just hauling butts from one place to another.

There's simply so possible way <i>that's</i> gonna have a negative impact.  Right?
 
2013-03-01 03:04:32 PM
Very, very bad move. Whatever small benefits in productivity and connectivity you might get from making everyone work in the office, they are not going to outweigh the loss in good will with the employees.  And be assured some employees will quit, and take a substantial portion of the company's intellectual resources with them.

If the concern was that at-home employees are becoming too detached, then a rule like "come to the office at least once a week" would go a long way and not upset too many people.

But I'm guessing this is nothing more than some smart-ass guy with a spreadsheet who showed her a first-order analysis that there is a 2.21% decrease in productivity among employees working at home, and she made a robotic decision to close it.
