I could live with the tracking of my work. I mean, there was a ticketing system for people to request work, so it only makes sense to track those tickets. My issue was with the nitpicking change management. It drove me (and many of my co-workers) insane...

As I do not kiss the ass of corporate overlords, they can kiss my ass. I am salaried. I am being paid for my skillset, end of fucking story. How and when I work is irrelevant so long as the milestones get hit at the agreed upon time. This diseased, bullshit hangup of "productivity" is not only worthless but counterproductive. Actual productivity is not some linear, directly proportional scale that every person you hire is going to automagically adhere to. I know I sure as Hell don't. I get to work at 0630 and I am out no later than 1400-1430. This allows me to avoid traffic and work when my brain is most active. Can my boss track my time? More often than not, no. Does it matter? Absofuckinglutely not since I hit the milestones. Some of my guys come in at 1200 and bail out around 2000. That's absolutely fine with me. There are days I haven't gone in to work (prepandemic) because, fuck it, I just wasn't feeling it that day.

Just because a company pays you doesn't mean they own you. You are not a slave and you are not a serf.

If you're on the company dime, you're on the company time. So why shouldn't they be able to monitor and evaluate the productivity of remote workers?


You've obviously never had the boss looking in on you when he's not supposed to.
Huh? I'm sorry, I was thinking about cake.
