Promoted to what? Doing the same thing before the promotion? Probably not. And that would not be a "promotion" as much as it is, "we'd like to pay you more, and the only way to do that is to put you in a higher HR bracket," type thing.

If we consider promotion as "being responsible for a lot of work that requires your managing other people," then maybe working exclusively from home does not provide the decision-makers with enough information to believe that a home-worker can manage. And will give that job to someone else.

The flexibility of a company to allow WFH seems, to me, to be a very productive way to do business. As a requirement (by the worker), yeah, it's probably still a bit stifling, career-wise.
