I love working from home! I never, ever want to go back to working in an office. Thankfully, my whole editorial work team (and boss) are all introverts, so they're all quite happy to work from home as well. I'm so much more productive, can work at whatever time suits me, free from annoyingly loud co-workers, in my own comfortable environment. The only real drawback is getting 'too' comfortable alone, so when I actually venture out into the real world, interacting with flesh-and-blood people seems a little odd and uncomfortable.I also know people who don't like working from home. Most of my friends prefer not to work remotely.
But I'm quite opposite to it, I hate being in office, there is too much communication for me there, it takes too much energy. I don't need to separate space and I've be in remote work long before COVID, I think since 2011. But I have a comfortable working place.
Most of my co-workers(from a department) also decided not to go back to office(they had to work from work during COVID last year).
I like it when work is where my laptop is. Sometimes I work from a cafe or from a car(not so comfortable though), and I feel it all as a freedom. Probably the fact that I don't feel it as a prison means that my work is quite good for me.
