The way I've accomplished the task you're talking about is instead of 
trying to push and pull *to* the work machine, I use another machine with 
less restrictive firewalls to push and pull from.  This is how I do it...

Work <-> Web Server <-> Home

The web server acts as my "USB Key", and I have cron jobs to pull and push 
updates to and from the servers.  So at 7:30, I can have a "git pull" on 
my work machine - so it would go to the web server, pull in and merge my 
changes before I got to work.  Then when I go home, say at 5:10, do a "git 
push" back to the web server.  At 5:30 or so my home machine can do a "git 
pull" and at 7:00 AM do a "git push".

This works pretty well so far.  Another solution is to set up your home 
machine to have dyndns and enable SSH.  You can then just ssh into your 
home machine, and use org-mode that way too.  I've tried this quite a bit 
as well, and am kinda at a crossroads on which I like the most yet...

I hope this helps.
