#AxcientLife Spotlight – Remote Work Pros and Cons
The novel coronavirus has caused more people to work from home than at any other point in modern history. Remote work comes with plenty of pros and cons!
We asked our senior leadership and a couple of employees from different departments to share what their favorite and least favorite parts of remote work are.
Kevin Hoffman - CTO and Co-Founder
Likes: No commute, 2 hours/day back + see family more!
Dislikes: Miss the comradery of the office collaboration.
David Bennett - CEO
Likes: Eating dinner at a normal time (not around 9 pm).
Dislikes: Not being in the office with the whole team and being unable to travel and meet with partners in person.
