Top Ten Disadvantages Of Working From Home As A Transcriptionist

I read an article discussing the disadvantages of working from home - as a transcriptionist. Here's the list:

  • Missing Relationships

  • Lethargy

  • Distractions

  • Tend To Over Work

  • Employee Benefits

  • Owning And Maintaining A Workstation

  • Book Keeping

  • Financial Security

  • Backup Action Plans


The list above applies not only to MTs but all industries as well. It's also a case-to-case basis, depending on how you mentally prepare yourself to be in this situation, how you handle things and what works for you while working at home.

I kind of like the idea which is why I'm working at home for the past six (6) months now. However, I'm not without problems. One of the biggest challenge was to find the right employer (yes working at home does not mean you are you're own boss, and most of us really are employees as well, but on a different working environment - well sort of). I moved to three (3) different employers in the span of six (6) months. Perhaps it's me, but I also have some issues with those employers as well. It should be a win-win situation and that both parties respect and understand each others situation.  Over that short period of time, I learned to adapt.

Don't get me wrong, there are also benefits of working at home, that's why a lot people are enticed to doing so. However, when not prepared, and you don't instill discipline, you'll wind up with all these troubles presented above.

  2. Well, those disadvantages could very well be advantages for others practicing their medical transcription at home. Most of the people who I know has a lot of advantage with working at home are people like working moms or those with medical problems. People who can't leave home because they have to take care of a lot of things like family, they are stuck in bed etc etc.

  4. What you said is 100% true, there are really lots of hurdles when working as home transcriptionist, you have to arrange for power backup, internet backup and even compensate for other benefits that you would have got if worked in a company. There are people who earn good if well disciplined and are committed to their work.

  28. Missing Relationships - working from home actually helped me have more time with family and friends.

    Distractions - working in an office setting too has distractions - the answer is discipline.

    Tend To Over Work - same issue with office work
