Working From Home vs. a Higher Pay

Would You Rather Work From Home or Earn a Higher Salary?

More and more women are redefining what it means to be successful, and it's not climbing the corporate ladder anymore. Many of them are saying they prize flexibility and a better work-life balance over a higher pay and position, according to a More magazine survey.

I can definitely see a lot of moms prioritizing a flexible work schedule so they can spend more time with their kids, but I know that having a high salary is very important to a lot of people. Which one do you prefer — working from home or earning more pay?

I don't think I would be able to work from home, I like getting up, dressing up and going to work and being around other people too much.

As someone who has worked from home for almost 5 years, I can definitely say I prefer working from home. The benefits would easily make up for the lower pay for me. I'm a bit of a loner and really enjoy not having to interact with my co-workers.

I'd like financial security, but I would prefer the flexibility especially since I'm trying to get pregnant.

Definitely more pay. I find I'm not as productive when working from home, plus I like getting dressed, putting makeup on, going to the office and seeing my coworkers.
