Working from home has a TON of perks, but there is a downside. First, the majority of work at home jobs available are for independent contractors and freelancers, which means you’re responsible for your own taxes. Second, most gigs don’t offer employee benefits, so no health insurance, no paid vacation, no sick leave, and no matching 401(k) retirement plan. All these things must be taken into consideration when you decide to work from home.
Luckily, more and more companies are offering telecommuting positions with employee benefits. From my research the majority of remote jobs that do offer benefits are for full-time workers, which is generally the case when you work outside the home too. So if you need a telecommuting job with benefits here are some great companies to check out.
Please note, while benefits were researched on the corporate websites and/or GlassDoor.com and are believed to be correct, you need to check with the individual companies and HR departments for complete up-to-date information. Companies are listed in alphabetical order with the positions they hire for and the benefits they offer.
