I've been working remotely for over a decade, and I can never go back to working in an office. I think this limits my career options in the future, as most senior positions require you to be physically on site.

    I'd disagree about senior rolls needing to be onsite. I can see manager positions needing to be in-person. But the high cost of living is SF and difficulty finding talent has many companies looking to fill senior rolls remotely.

    It definitely limits your options, but the ones that remain have a higher likelihood of being efficient, productive organizations. That's my experience.

    Yes, it will limit your options, however, there are options. The company I work for is fully distributed. We have 1 "permanent" office at a co-working place and only the CEO even uses it sometimes.

    This is something I fear as well, as my career progresses how can I ensure I keep remote. Hopefully the opportunities are out there (and I remain relevant)

    ...and then a global pandemic made it clear that remote work is here to stay. Don't worry, OP :)
