My experience has been in Europe but as all the companies concerned are
American, it is pertinent. One preferred that I worked mostly at home, which
was fortunate as they are in France and I live in Scotland. They provided me
with Interleaf for the duration of the contract. Another said they weren't
geared up for telecommuting although they appreciated the benefits to them
and thought they might move towards it next year. The third required
full-time on-site presence.

A major concern appears to be security as none as far as I know permit
remote logging in to their computer system. If I raise the possibility, they
tend
to throw up their hands in horror. This may of course be more a reflection of
corporate culture than the state of their systems.
