Refactored #022: “Returning to the Office”

On this episode of Refactored…

  • Google is going all out on their return to office transition plan. The Times reports, Verge covers, and the guys add much commentary:
    • sit/stand desks
    • inflatable walls
    • lots of cameras
    • utter tonedeafness
  • For some people, remote work is a bug, not a feature. The guys debate.
  • Chris takes a stand vis-a-vis “hybrid” office environments.
  • Frank drops a bomb — the open plan office is complete Cargo Cultism.
  • Digital Watercoolers! They’re as awesome as they are impractical for small teams.
  • There is much opination regarding the The Great Resignation. Come one and all - there’s something to insult everyone!
  • The guys debate counteroffers. When does it make sense? When is it inappopriate?
  • … and much more!
