I work at home about half the time. I am an Engineer by training (Materials Science) and the work I do is a combination of product management and applications engineering. While I go into the office about half time, it's mainly for building an maintaining rapport with colleagues and production workers who make the products I manage. Most of my work is on the computer, however. A little CAD, but mostly spreadsheets as I work to optimize designs to specific applications.

I'm fortunate to have found a company that doesn't care about the paralysis. Many did.
