Back to the office after telecommuting

I've been telecommuting on a full-time basis for almost 5 years. I applied for a new position that would bring me back to the office. I'm excited for this, but I'm looking for some input from people who have come back to the office after working from home, because I'm sad to give it up and I need some upsides! [more inside]

How can I work at work?

What makes Colorado cost-prohibitive for pro-work-from-home employers?

I recently went through three rounds of interviews for a promising 100% work-from-home remote job. After a long week or waiting to hear back, I was told that I've been removed from the running due to my home state's tax laws. I'm not sure where to begin fact-checking this, but this is the sort of fact I find irresistible to check, especially given the context. The employer is located in Boston, MA. [more inside]

Legitimate work-from-home opportunities in northern NY state?

Greetings all. I'm looking to move to northern NY state - most likely Clinton County, within an hour or so tops of Plattsburgh. I was wondering if anybody happens to know of any good websites or other resources for finding telecommuting jobs in that area? I ask this because there seems to be legions of "get rich quick" scams masquerading as legitimate employment opportunities, as well as telecommuting jobs in other areas. (I've never telecommuted in my life, and from what I gather many such jobs do require physically traveling to a job site every now and again.) Any useful links, and/or accounts of your own telecommuting experiences (preferably in the aforementioned area) would be much appreciated. For the record, I'm already familiar with Monster, Craigslist, Trovit, and Snagajob. Thanks in advance!

What are the telecommuting options for an mlis?

I'm about half way through an mlis degree. (Both the mlis and my bachelor's are from well-respected schools.) I'm wondering what options are available for telecommuting for those with a library and information science degree? (I'll be living in a fairly remote location which will necessitate alternative employment!) My writing skills are strong. Grant writing? Cataloging? Is "information broker" actually a viable option? Any advice is greatly appreciated!

[AustinFilter] What are your favorite places to work from in Austin?

I'll soon be telecommuting, but I'd rather not work from home all the time. Being in Austin, of course, we've got hundreds of places with WI-FI access. What are some of the best places to sit and work in Austin? I would need network access (free or paid) and access to an outlet for my laptop. I don't spend much time on the phone, so I don't need privacy for conference calls, etc.

Getting hired as telecommuter software engineer?

I am an experienced software engineer and was laid off recently. I'm currently applying for positions. My ideal would be a telecommuting gig, which is the type of position I had most recently. A certain job mailing list I subscribe to has a lot of promising positions, but many of them are marked "onsite". Here's my question: shall I apply for some of these "onsite" positions in the hope that my qualifications will impress the hiring person enough to consider hiring me as a telecommuter? Or would this just be a waste of time for everyone concerned? [more inside]

How should I set up my office environment?

This idea about not-quite-working-from-home is great. The problem is that I don't live in cali, and I'm looking for the practical aspects rather than the lifestyle. I've seen other setups where small firms share an office space, a receptionist, etc. -- how can I get in on something like that?
