Pros - You save money on gas
Cons - You work for Marissa Mayer
Not all people are self disciplined enough to work unsupervised from home. If you are an employer how do you let some work from home but you have to tell others you can't
+Brent Alexander I agree but I find that most employers find it is easier to just treat everyone the same.
+John OBrien Start with a formalized telecommuter program, where continued performance is tied to specific measurable performance metrics.  If you don't perform, you lose the 'privilege' to WFH, and earn a pink slip.  Next, try hiring people who love to work.  You'll find that people who are passionate about their work and have the latitude to be successful at it will quickly 'blur' the 8 to 5 lines, and the employer will get the better end of the deal every time.
You don't have to tell me. My office is 300 miles from me and I couldn't tell you how to get there if my life depends on it. I'm just going from what I've heard from friends and family members that work with companies that have started then stopped telecommter programs. 
I'm 20 almost 21 and if I could work from home it would be a blessing because I wouldn't have to drive to work I can just have an account and dealing with what ever I am doing and make money on line ...
