Remote work advantages
Many advantages or secondary employment conditions that apply to an office-based job are worthless for remote workers.
An amazing office with a view of some Metropol city and free parking.
For example fresh fruit, free lunch, free snacks, Friday afternoon drinks, ping-pong tournaments and so on. None of these are worth anything if you work fully remote.
When you work fully remote, other extra’s become important.
