Our team is super distributed in multiple timezones in the US and in Europe. So I find myself taking calls in weird hours (especially when I travel to the west coast). I generally work from co-working spaces.
I’m a member of one that has 10 locations in Manhattan (NY) and Brooklyn, where I reside. I often bounce around different locations depending on how my week/day goes.

I split my WFH time about 50/50 between my home and coffee shops. I really like working in environments where other people are also getting some work done. The library is another great spot because the energy feels serious.

The most important benefit of working from home is being close to my family. I can take a half-hour break to bring my daughter home from kindergarten or take a stroll with my baby son right after I’m done with my days work. I absolutely love that.
