I was preaching remote dev work for years to my previous employers and none of them listened. Each lost their most talented engineers and devs to remote jobs.About 6 months after I left too they started doing remote for the devs and their billables (love that agency life) are close to 90% now and the COVID thing has brought ALL employees billables way up.I always wear the "I told you so," douche smirk when I go in for client meetings, hah!
lol.. well.. it was kind of obvious to anyone in the workforce.. you can do the same work at home or remote.. and often at a higher level as you can design your environment. The thing that happened with COVID is that larger tech based companies, now forced to send workers home, realized they were still as productive and could eliminate the overhead associated with business real estate.. which is a huge line item for any company. This is maybe one of the silver linings coming from the pandemic.
The biggest hurdle I fought was control and ego. The geniuses in the "exec hallway" just wanted to control people's whereabouts and stroke their own egos. Plus the ridiculous overhead of a massive building caused them to want people there using up all those resources as much as possible. Idiots could have been far more profitable by greatly downsizing or office-sharing when needed, but whatever. Ego and sentimentality got in their way.
I feel ya man.. modern cooporate culture has been too long under the draconian fist of the 1920's production line ethos. It make no sense now... and people are figuring it out finally. Along with crypto we're moving into the era of decentralized work.

Agreed.. I've worked in startups for the most part my adult life.. and it's been educational. But what's happened recently is that larger companies are becomming amenable to a decntralized work force.. this was all in the making prior.. but COVID kind of forced their hand. I think it's a net benefit
I've yet to be paid in crypto .. but open to it.. when paid in cash a lot of it goes into crypto .. so either way. It's been interesting to see the shift in workers from ages of 20 to about 45 who are very open to payment in crypto .. my parents would never consider it.. but it's becoming more normalized
