I have come across many article declaring that in-person is dead and if you want to retain (or attract) employees, you'd better start offering WFH. Forever. I started my first job as a Jr dev in January 2020, two months later I was working from home full time. I felt like my career trajectory took a sabbatical. I was able to do what I was currently doing but I was not asked for more. Heck, I didn't even commit my code for most of the pandemic, rather giving a coworker control of my screen and allowing him to do it. Once back in office however, within days I was taking on different projects and in general getting more involved. So for the sake of my career, I say to work from home: thanks, I'll pass

This is one of those posts I would downvote. Clearly WFH is not for everyone, but if you truly love something , it doesn't matter where you work from. And yeah, I've been doing WFH for 17 years now.

True dat😁Yeah, I was doing WFH waaay before it became the norm. So I know pretty much all the good things about it -- and yeah, there's a LOT of advantages. And yeah, you need to be responsible. And if your spouse/family is living with you, then I would say you need your own room.
