What Does Wall Street Like And Hate The Most About Working From Home

Now that Deutsche Bank is directly competing with BofA in polling its clients, having launched its own fund manager survey a while back, DB credit strategist Jim Reid is preparing to publish the full results of the latest monthly survey in which he polled nearly 700 people. And ahead of publishing the full survey results, he highlighted what Wall Street professionals said they like and dislike most about WFH.

People could chose up to two options: an overwhelming 68% of Wall Street workers thought the lack of commute was the best WFH factor. That was nearly double the 35% who said they liked seeing more of their family!

In terms of what people hated, it’s a lack of in-person team interaction (71%) and a lack of divide between work and home life (49%) that were well ahead.

As Reid concludes, “if companies are desperate to get people back to the office it seems investment into research into a teleporter would be a good move as commuting is by far the biggest bugbear!”

We will present more results on WFH and market-related answers, when Deutsche publishes the full poll on Monday.
