What are the pros and cons of having a distributed workforce?

A distributed workforce causes productivity loss for a security operations center (SOC). I can get greater productivity by having people sitting next to each other. One person can turn around and say, "I just got this phishing case" and another team member can respond, "Oh yeah. We have a campaign that's targeting us." It's harder to do that when you have people in different places. It’s a challenge to find time on the calendar for those people to talk about sharing a case. Those are some of the things that I take into consideration.
