I have been working from home for over 6 years now (remote/telecommute - separate home office). Mostly, contract assignments.

For me personally, working contract assignments has greatly reduced the office politics and crap one would have to endure otherwise. Greatly reduced, I did not say fully eliminate. Smile | :)

Working from home and not at the office, saves me tons of $$ on transportation, vehicle costs, etc. too.


-- I don't miss anything about not working at the office.
