Teleworking (or telecommuting), the practice of working for a company from a remote locale rather than schlepping to the same office as your co-workers every day, is becoming increasingly common in the United States.
But that doesn’t mean that everyone embraces the practice.
Microsoft recently surveyed 4,500 information workers
to determine which cities are the worst when it comes to teleworking. The survey results factor in company policy and attitudes toward working remotely, as well as pet peeves among employees who work in the office. It focused on 15 major metropolitan areas nationwide.
Here are the eight least-friendly cities:
8. San Francisco
5. New York
3. Los Angeles
San Francisco respondents rated themselves lowest in productivity when working remotely. Honest and
lazy—a rare and dangerous combo.
