Poll: Do you take work home?

Some employees take work home so they can fit in quality family time, while others prefer to keep their work at the office. Do you take work home?

This is a guest post from TechRepublic Programming and Development blogger Justin James.

Some developers I know never take work home. This is not an issue for me anymore because, for about the last two years, I have been blessed (or cursed) to work 100% from home. However, when I worked in an office, I preferred to take work home rather than be at the office late. I would rather stay up working than miss dinner with my family and my son's bedtime routine.

Take this poll and let us know whether you ever take work home. If you answer "No," please post in the discussion whether it's because your employer doesn't allow you to work more than 40 hours per week.
