Corporate jobs are those where you work for large business organizations or conglomerates. Although the pay packet may be reasonably good depending on the level in which one is employed, a corporate job is not without its share of woes. These jobs can sometimes get to be quite stressful and have an adverse effect on individual’s mental and physical health. Depression and work related stress is also a common occurrence. Take for example a person who works in a call center. They need to be constantly on the phone talking to customers and attending to queries and not all interactions are pleasant. Work from home jobs on the other hand are to a large extent jobs of comfort , but again this depends on what kind of job you have and what you expect from it. For a workaholic a corporate job or a home job makes no difference. They will continue to drive themselves regardless of location. Each kind of job has its share of pros and cons and it largely depends on your goals and expectations.

Why some people are not happy working for someone else? This could be due to limitations on independence and creativity. Sometimes there may be clash of ethics between you and your company which can be quite frustrating experience. You cannot really walk up to the head of the company and tell them that you don’t like the product that you are selling to your customers or you don’t like the way the company is functioning. Now in a home based job there is no one really to tell you what to do and what not to do again defined by what kind of job you do. Why most people prefer working from home or for themselves is because they have the freedom to run the business the way they want to and are totally responsible for how it functions or succeeds eventually.

In a corporate job, you have to work within a team or with your co-workers. You may not always get along with your coworkers or even your boss. In a home based job you are your own boss and you do not have to report to anyone or explain yourself to where your performance is concerned.

Sometimes the stress and monotony of an office job may overwhelm you and you will often find yourself working almost like a robot, going about your duties just because you have to and not because you want to. In a home based business, everyday is a new step to take and you will wake up to newer responsibilities and challenges which some people may look forward to. But then there are many others who prefer not to take risks of any sort and are quite content working for someone else even if they have to leave their individuality at home when they set out to work.
