A 2 year Stanford study shows astonishing productivity boost for working from home (2018) - I can confirm this and I’m happy it’s a trend with a positive trajectory. There’s a whole host of improvements at the individual’s, company, city and state level for more companies and people doing this.
The latest trend for tech interviews - days of unpaid homework (2018) - as good as the news from the previous article is, this one is bad. I’ve had to politely decline such expansive interviews in the past. I do think the intention is good - that is eliminating some of the bias of whiteboard interviews, but the implementation is pretty bad. I do wish the tech industry wouldn’t jump from fad to fad with interview techniques.
