Isn't it PeopleSoft that has the ad that shows the guy brushing his teeth at his desk?

While that implies a certain commitment on the part of the staff, this policy seems to clash pretty strongly with that image. In my view, the fact that PS thinks it needs such a policy seems to imply that there are problems, either with staff who take telecommuting as an opportunity to slack off, or with management, who on an individual basis, have not been competent in managing telecommuting staff. Or, possibly worst of all, the policy is driven by some bureaucratic need for control, regardless of productivity and dedication.

Whatever the reason, this is the sort of thing that I'd hate to see coming out of a company I held shares of.

I do not own PSFT, and haven't really been that interested in them,
but I sure do detest bureaucracy.
