So I recently done an interview for a company, before applying to the job I did research about the company and the job description, from what Ive read I thought the office was based in London.

However I was told by the interviewer that the job is fully remote and they don't have an office.

I understand we're still in a pandemic but I guess I was a bit disappointed because I really like the company and I would've liked a hybrid working environment where I can see people face to face and also on a screen

I just feel I wont build connections properly with people and I feel I may lack some core skills if I was to work fully remote.

Believe me I would be saving a lot of money especially on travel so I guess thats a positive.

What is your opinion? Is remote working worth it?

Be Kind, Thanks

I've been working remotely for the past 2 years. I've also worked remotely in various roles in the past. Much prefer it!

Remote working is the way forward, IMO.

I love remote working as an introvert, i understand your perspective. But you could always organise get togethers with the colleagues.

I haven't spent a day in the office for 16 months at this point. The first 4 months was a big learning curve of how to manage relationships, whats the right level of contact etc etc. Once that was dealt with, its been much nicer working from home.

You can structure the day as you see best. Fewer distractions mean I get more done in a day. Its more comfortable. And I also get to drink good coffee.
