Disadvantages of an Outsourcing Job

Along with the perks come a few drawbacks and before embarking on this career choice, it is a good idea to understand them.

  • When work is sent offshore, it usually has to be performed at the same time as it was done onshore. As a result, outsourcing roles are most often accompanied by odd working hours. Employees supporting the US have to work nights, which can be grueling and exhausting.
  • The opportunity to make an impact on the future direction of the company is limited since the host company is always located overseas. You will always be in a supporting function and that can restrict your ability to make groundbreaking changes in your industry.
