I've been on both sides of working remote (managing and working) and the remote has included both "work from home" and "work in a different office of the same company". I agree that it's not something you want to do (or hire someone to do) as an entry-level actuary.

Software advances have made it much easier to work remotely, but you still get a lot more immediacy when you sit near someone. The boss wants to see when the new employee looks frustrated or confused or bored. The employee wants to see if the boss looks busy or supportive or annoyed.
