    Not every manger is willing to go down this route. You still find old style management in the public sector and they are not fully equipped to handle employees working from home regularly

    Lecture recordings allow the freedom to not attend lecture everyday, giving you the freedom to work on another areas.

    You are often able to work from home as long as you are available via e-mail, telephone and/or Skype. It is important to also work from the office to maintain work relationships and attend meetings in person.

    I have never worked from home as my job is mainly based in the lab. I heard from people that it is very flexible.

    Imperial has a good VPN service that allows you to connect from college machines from home. Some software packages are able to be installed on your home computer that can be purchased for a discount or for free from the college.
