I have occasionally brought work home. There’s the random ‘look this up away from the net nanny’ aspect of it.Where research is much easier done in the freedom of your own internet rather than the monitored and locked down one at work. there have also been a couple of times when i needed peace and quiet and concentration and the only way to get that was at home over the weekend. I do try to make it the exception not the rule.
Different bosses have different expectations. and there is one with a ‘X must be done, don’t care how or why, just results’ attitude. Others….others know and respect that you have a life and want to live it.
I don’t mind the occasional ‘spend a little research’ time because, well I’ve made the occasional phone call on work hours so I think it all balances out.
