Working remotely has some major pluses for both companies and employees and for the last 20 years or so we’ve seen a lot more remote work. That’s changing. Many companies are now pulling back on remote work and remote workers. IBM, AETNA, HP, and Reddit to name a few.
Companies are saying they want more control and collaboration. Even good things get overdone, so a pullback isn’t surprising. It pays to be aware that there may be fewer remote opportunities going forward as companies figure out what works best for them.
