Best Work-From-Home Companies 2019

14 Companies Offering Flexibility Without Skimping on Professional Development, Compensation, or Benefits

At one of my previous companies, I was part of a four person team where three of us worked from the office, and the fourth worked from home. Initially, I was envious of my work-from-home colleague. I pictured her lounging in her PJs all day, while I literally sat next to my boss, wondering whether he'd see me (or care) if I checked Facebook.


My envy quickly dissipated, however, when we started having more team meetings where engagement and participation were crucial.

When we had meetings, my work-from-home co-worker connected via Skype. Her head would float above us on a large TV screen, a reminder that we did indeed have a fourth team member. As she sat in her living room, watching miniature versions of the three of us laughing and tossing ideas around an over-sized conference table, she was more of a spectator than a participant. Unable to hear anyone who was more than a foot away from the mic, she often had to ask us to repeat what we'd said. Her own responses invariably came in delayed, or choppy.

***

The moral of the story? Not all companies offering work-from-home roles are created equal. The added flexibility may sound like a blessing, but if the company isn't fully remote, or at the very least, experienced in and committed to supporting remote workers, you may end up feeling like my colleague - left out and overlooked.

Some of the companies below have fully remote teams, and others have a mix of work-from-home and in-office roles. Those in the latter category all have tried and true strategies for ensuring the old cliche "out of sight out of mind" doesn't apply to their remote workers. Most importantly, all 14 of these companies have roles that offer flexibility without skimping on professional development, compensation, or benefits. Check them out!
