Lots of Automattic employees within 7-9 months tell Toni that they can’t imagine going back to a regular job.
Automattic has been 100% distributed since day 1.
180 people, 28 countries, 138 cities make up the Automattic workforce.
Interesting point about people working from home. The assumption is that people would goof off. But Toni mentions how they have the opposite problem of people working too much.
This sounds awesome, but, personally, I don’t think I have the discipline to work this way. I need to be in the office and I need face-to-face time. I still appreciate the flexibility Automattic offers though.
