The downside of this is that you are not around in the office in case
someone wants to talk to you. I often end up with guys from our
operations team or other teams stopping at my desk and ask questions.
guys who want to have a quick chat about a problem and want to ask for
an advice or idea. Or people who want to learn Perl and have a question
that you can answer in 30 seconds.

And it means you do not get 'noticed' as much. I work from home when I have a task to get done that benefits from not 
having to talk to people. A specific document that needs completing or some more PowerPoint waffle for a pointless 
meeting with people who won't get it anyway.

Other than that, I try to be in the office.
