If you work from home, do you find yourself missing all of those great benefits that you once enjoyed when working outside the home?
Well, now with more and more companies joining the work at home bandwagon, there are quite a few well-known companies that will hire remote workers, pay them a reasonable wage, and best of all — they will offer competitive benefits for those who need them.

Below is a list of 10 of them, and I am certain that you will recognize most — if not all — of the names. Note that most of these are not part time work at home positions because benefits are typically reserved for full time workers.
