This is getting a bit dated, as is your offer of free tix

Having long since retired I miss the company of workmates and the advantages of working in a city environment with shops and cafes and theatres easily accessible but can see the advantages my son-in-law has in being able to work from home part of the time and avoid the long commute to work - so circumstances change and there is for and against both situations

Prior to retiring 15 years ago, my work was based on a 10 day fortnight of 4 days working from home, 3 days interstate travel and 3 days in the office, and I did this for the last 5 years I worked. Which days were at home and which were in the office were flexible and could be varied at short notice. For this system to work, you must be disciplined and work to a regular pattern, have good internet access and good mobile phone coverage, which, then, was not always available. With my wife working out of the house, working at home enabled me to concentrate on work with very few disruptions, and, as I was writing operating manuals as part of the job, it was very productive. It worked for me , but may not for others. P.s. you must also have a company and a boss who treat staff as adults and don't impose constant supervision!

I think it is better to go out to work as I think if you work from home you need high motivation to focusing on the job! You also get a lot more from working out of the home than just work: like company of peers and interaction with all sorts of people day to day instead of being alone or having distractions of young children etc at home.

Who wouldn't like to do their own thing in their own time. Some interaction is important, but savings from commute, etc have to outweigh downsides.
