Nevertheless, what you need to keep in mind is that even Elon Musk has somewhat softened his attitude toward remote work.

He said that managers can decide whether an employee can work from home or not.

Musk may have realized that the 14% of US jobs that allow remote work are the ones that receive more than half of all job applications.
