PROS

There exists no necessity of putting on formals, to look presentable, go through official conducts or anything. You can feel free to look your worst while doing your work.
  1. While working, nobody stands above your head, checking on you, dictating you or bothering you. Your boss doesn’t keep an eye on you every instant, which, let’s be honest, can becoming very unnerving. You are given a deadline, till which you have to complete your work and that’s all.
