- How should I bring up working from home? 5 answers
I am unsure how to ask that because I am the most junior employee, and as far as I know no one else in the company works from home. If they accepted I would feel like I am getting special treatment, and most of all I don't want to look like a slacker. we are pretty flexible with our schedule (some work 8 to 4, some 10 to 6) but no one ever works an entire day from home, apart from when they are taking an actual day off. the main reason I want to work from home is that the office is far from where I live (1h20 commute), so I would gain almost three hours of free time every day.
I am well aware that sometimes I need to physically be there, for example when we have meetings. but if I had 2 or 3 days a week where I could develop from home, it would be huge quality of life improvement for me.
in short, how do I approach my boss about this?
