The Good and The Bad of Working From Home

The Good and The Bad of Working From Home

Adrian Granzella Larssen, Managing Editor of The Daily Muse made the move to working from home two years ago. She's written a nice piece on the pros and cons of not working in an office here. She loves the freedom it affords but like a lot of us misses the social interaction an office offers.

The key points made by Adrian Granzella Larssen were divided into two lists, The 5 Best Things vs The 5 Worst Things.

The Good:
1. You can work in your pajamas
2. You avoid the drop-by
3. You'll never miss a FedEx package again
4. You can multitask in meetings
5. You can be loud and crazy

The Bad:
1. There's no water cooler
2. You never really leave the office
3. You never really leave the house
4. There's no IT department
5. You need an insane amount of self-motivation

Our home office is shown at the top of this post and one of things we love working from home is the quiet. We know we get a lot more work done at home without the interruptions and distractions of an office. What do you like and/or dislike about working from home?
