    Pros

    You are free to do as you please. There is no commute. You can work in shorts and a T-shirt. No one looks over your shoulder. You can write off a small portion of your home office expenses on your taxes. Your employer usually compensates you for incidental expenses. If you are married or have children at home, this type of work situation could be especially convenient for you.

    Cons

    It takes a phenomenal amount of self-discipline to start work when you know you don't have to be at the office by 8 a.m. You are the only person around all day, so there is no outside pressure to be busy. You must be entirely self-motivated. You miss out on the camaraderie that stems from working with others day after day. There are no coworkers to go to lunch with. You can never escape the office and go home, because you are already there. Working from home can be messy and can take up an entire spare room in your home. You don't get face time with your coworkers, so it is more difficult to find out about new projects you might be interested in. The boss can't see that you are working hard or putting in extra hours, so you are judged more on the numbers than your work ethic and other intangible factors. There is a danger of putting in too many hours or overworking. As improbable as this might sound, imagine that it's 11 p.m. and you suddenly have a panic attack about work. It's all too easy to go into your home office and work until 1 a.m.
