Some unpopular opinions I hold (Subject to change, of course) -Tech Corporate world

  1. Presentations are mostly useless. They waste time, encourage intellectual laziness, are manipulative by nature, and lead to bad decisions.
  2. Open offices are bad for both productivity and collaboration. They mostly increase distractions., and any gains in collaboration are small in comparison to the losses of productivity.
  3. Almost every tech worker who can work from home will benefit from doing it once in a while. There is no one who works best ONLY in office. Companies should actually force employees to work from home once a while, this forces them to create a good “working corner”  at home, and can actually be better for their mental health.
  4. Forcing an early start time for your company is bad for business. If you treat your company like a school, you will get school children to work for you.
  5. Culture is almost always top down. Bottoms up is only feedback and can do very little to actually move the needle.
