Off the top of my head:

Less socialization/interaction with co-workers (may also be an upside :-)
Potential for abuse (also exists with on-site work)
Distractions (kids, pets, neighbors, etc.)
Connectivity issues (not controlled by the employer)
Security concerns
Infrastructure support (e.g., how to do remote IT support/troubleshooting
of employee's set-up)

All of these can be addressed, more or less effectively, of course. And the
cost savings from not providing office space should easily cover it.
