No commuting back and forth to work means more time spent sleeping, having breakfast or spending time with family in the morning, instead of being stuck in traffic.


Working from home means you control your work flow. Obviously you must keep in contact with your office workers and sometimes plan accordingly to them but, still there is much more freedom compared to a typical office day. However this depends on how much decipline you have to not take advantage of your freedom.

Dress code

Working from home means no dress code. Wear what you want. although this could affect the productivity of work as you are mentaly dressing for comfort. Working in an office where you must dress smart makes you more productive as you are dressed for profesionalism.
