Re: Stop spying on me!

Don't access personal accounts at your job. The corporation is very likely capturing whether it is encrypted or not. You also have coworkers that have nothing better to do than to fiddle with their colleagues equipment.

Paid? Hell, I want a raise and a bonus!

Paid for driving my hellions around? Hell, I want a raise and a bonus! My daemon seed have leeched color from my hair, cost me my fit and trim physique, and likely stole some amount of sanity.

Very soon they will be clawing for the keys to the car... you've been warned.

What can $10 stretch to these days? Lunch... or access to international airport security systems

VPN configuration

VPN configuration if neglected or implemented incorrectly can indeed grant too much access. If however one takes the time to understand the environment and the roles it can be quite easy to grant very specific access. A VPN implemented correctly is much more secure than an RDP connection open to the world. Your windows server is a mere stepping stone to the rest of your environment. Better to have a few layers between it and the internet.

Distraction

I often see the argument that the worker has more distraction at home. Speaking from personal experience I have quite a bit less distraction at home. I can ignore queries from coworkers for a few moments when I am remote look up what I may need to and give them a concise answer. In the office I am confronted with noise and immediate distraction from those looking for assistance.

This decision by these large corporations is short sighted based on numbers on executive reports often sanitized by middle management with no real substantiation.

Unfortunately as someone else mentioned other companies will look at these decisions and base their policies on them. With IBM and HP spreading FUD that home workers are irresponsible, lazy slackers their customers may stop purchasing equipment and turnkey solutions to enable remote workers.
