California now allows companies to open up to a quarter of their capacity. Many companies, however, have told their employees to stay home. Cisco, Dropbox, both shoved back to June. Pintrest is August, Alphabet (Google and friends) in September, and Docusign is looking at October. Many others have even indicated zero plans to even discuss for now, including Twitter, Paypal, Yelp, Adobe, and everyone’s favorite webconferencing app… Zoom. Some people will look to return soon, but many others are just happy, like me, to consider their walk across the home to be a suitable commute.
Several of San Francisco Bay Area’s largest technology companies including Twitter Inc and Google plan to keep their offices largely closed for months more despite the government allowing them on Tuesday to be opened in a limited capacity.
