Amazing! Being an ex employee of NCCI, I am shocked that they even entertain the notion of telecommuting. The department I worked in all but walked you to and from the restroom. It went as far as manager(s) asking secretaries/assistants to document higher level employees every move. This extreme micro managing behavior only creates an unhealthy work attitude. As a professional, this was one of the most degrading situations I was ever thrown into. Nice to hear that it is not a company wide problem.

My guess is you worked in the legal department there. Have heard horror stories about them.

One of the biggest issues for telecommuters is lonliness. One option is to telecommute from a Remote Office Center. ROCs lease individual offices, internet and phone systems to workers from different companies in shared centers located around the city and suburb. ROCs provide infrastructure and structure so that workers have a place to go to work and professional grade infrastructure. However, since ROCs can be located anywhere, workers don't have to commute hours each day. They drive down the street to an office near their home.

ROCs are fairly new but can be found on the internet by searching for "Remote Office Centers".
