Some people find they are more productive working at home, while others find going into the office to be a better fit. Which one is right for you?

According to a study done by Pew Research Center, 35% of workers are currently working from home. Another Pew survey found that 41% of workers who have a job that can be done remotely are currently working a hybrid schedule at home and in the office. In a study by Nextiva, more than 52% of employees work from home at least once a week.

Each situation has its own pros and cons:

Working from Home: Pros
Working from Home: Cons

Working in the Office: Pros
Working in the Office: Cons

As you begin your career or start a new job, you may be presented with the option to either work from home or work in the office. Weigh the pros and cons to decide which option will work best for you and help you be most effective and efficient during work hours. If the option is not available before you start your new role, evaluate the pros and cons of your personal situation to see if it will work well for you in the long term or if you would like to consider another position with a different work setting.
