Freelance PMs, what’s your hourly rate? I’m considering going freelance vs full time employee. Also curious about any pros or cons you may want to share.

Depends what you'll be doing. If you're large and in charge of a major project or set of them, $75 - $100 isn't unreasonable. Doing some transformation & process work in lieu or enabling a leader double that. Less if you're a line manager. Another way to figure it - if you reduce your current salary to an hourly using 1800 - 2000 hrs/yr, add 20 - 30%. Assuming you'll b working full days, I'd reco a daily or weekly rate with a stipulation that outside, say 35 or 45 hrs/week or comparable /month, an hourly applies.

I’ve done multiple stints freelancing. Pro - you get an opportunity to feel out the different agencies in your area; opportunity to work variety of accounts; tax implications - you can write off expenses ex home office. Cons - no holiday or office closure pay; depending on the agency, you are excluded from agency activities; tax implications - make sure you are saving money to pay end of year taxes.
