Congrats deffury on the new Job
Though I know I am late and you have already decided and I think a good decision, but would still add my 2 cents.
I am working from few years at US 9am to 6pm Job , i.e. now a days PKs 7PM to 4AM (extension to 5/6AM many times) from home as contractor, and below are my findings / feedback on this .
- Do not do it for very long time it do affect health and your social life, and when I say social life its not only friends, its your own family Mother, Father siblings, Wife and Childern ( not sure if your are married or not and already a father or not )
- One can go for such job for few years for benefits like, good experience and exposure (exposure to good tools/technologies and good profile on resume), good money (in some cases it could be your requirement and not need, but never do it if its like only money and no good work) or both in many cases.
But I do know many people like me working like this and even some exact cases like mine where wife has a day job and I have a night job, If my job was not 'from home' I would have switched it after marriage, though still its not easy, but doing it for now for good designation, good learning/exposure, the ability to go any where in world and still work for same company with just a need of my laptop and a broadband connection, good compensation (though it comes after other factors , but its important , it brings food on the table , or probably it can affect what I can do for e.g. my childern in future , ofcourse when I will have some )
Now as you are already into this, so you will need just one thing , good support from Family , best of Luck bro.
