Remote mode: is it as good/bad as they say?
Working relationships are one of the few types of ties that can get away with working perfectly from substantial distances. You do not necessarily need to be physically present to build trust and enhance communication. Your boss will not get offended if you do not answer with a smiley face. Your HR does not need you to call every day to catch up. That is the notable advance of corporate culture and a gift of globalization, creating conspicuous conditions where you only need to switch on your Wi-Fi, meet the requirements, and do everything in time.
With a remote team, you get flexibility as a ground for your work. You get the freedom of choice in terms of expenditure and technology stack. You can hire devs from East Europe and they will deliver you the same productivity as the coders from your countries, still, with a vast difference in price (in your favor). With remote workers all over the continents, your company gets another way of entering foreign markets. Need to sell computers to Germany? Hire a German sales manager! Also, it will be a great constituent of your customer support, as teams worldwide work in different time zones, providing 24/7 consultations to your customers.
However, flip the coin, and you get the language barrier and communication issues. Time zones gap raises scheduling concerns. Foreign tax, payroll, and employment legislation may deter you from collaboration on your terms. These were the aspects to consider if you are an employee. What about the people whom you intend to hire?
They get the opportunity to combine personal and professional life, and that may entice if they have families and kids. In addition, with distant working, they save money and time on commuting. However, the coin still has two sides, remember. Often, without face-to-face communication, developers do not feel that they belong with the rest. They may experience a lack of motivation, burnout, and overall dissatisfaction with the entire process.
