This paper explores how remote work is perceived by young employees. On the basis of literature review, pilot study was undertaken (sample Olson, 1983, DeSanctis, 1984, Bailey, and Kurland, 2002; Madsen, 2011; Grant, Wallace, and Spurgeon, 2013). The results of the pilot study undertaken in Poland confirmed literature findings. It turned out that the most important for young remote workers are: flexible working hours and saving time on commuting to work. The main disadvantages of remote work include: difficulty in separating home affairs from the professional ones, social isolation and greater organizational requirements. The results of pilot study proved that other benefits and drawbacks are irrelevant. An interesting phenomenon is that in the age of social networking and extensive communication tools the second disadvantage of remote working for young remote workers is the risk of social isolation.
