Had someone reach out to me for a contract project leadership position implementing nCino at a commercial bank.

Any insight into what kind of rate I should ask for?

I was thinking somewhere in the neighborhood of $250/hour to make it worth my while considering this is a bank that routinely hires big4 and MBB, I have 15+ years of big firm experience, and this is a meaty role.

Just want to make sure I’m not aiming crazy high for a contract position…

Perhaps give them a range? Unless its a super specialized role, i may reduce the ask rate by a bit

Will you be 1099? Typically I'd look to double my effective hourly wage for that arrangement. For you that'd be $290/hr. Sure, some might balk, but I guarantee they're paying more than that for lawyers and other highly skilled resources. They're looking for a "hot skill" and a senior leadership role. I am continually confounded as to why it seems companies don't hire permanent for such a role, but the market is the market, and if you're not going to regret walking away without $250, don't feel bad doing it, because they're asking you to give up many things by abandoning your highly-paid W-2 role for this temporary contract one (regardless of length). No better time to set your price than day 1.

Thanks for confirming my thoughts!

Even at $250 I see a lot of value getting someone like me at half of my current firm bill rate

My TC comp now is just south of $300k.. not really interested in giving up full time employment for a lateral contract role.

This is a fairly specialized role. What I’m asking is what a big firm charges for someone with 5-10 years of experience so doesn’t seem completely crazy, but at the same time don’t have a good pulse on what is typical in the contracting world.

300k TC would be typical consulting senior director / managing director / VP comp, though they and CTA's can get that and more. I'm in the 250k range for TC, as a senior manager-level IC, non-HCOL area. A hot specialty like Ncino or CPQ or Marketing Cloud (and others) make it much easier to advance in comp or title.

What level of detail do you use for conflicts check when lateraling as junior corporate to another firm? A lot of my deals have been same client again and again, just with new transactions. Also, the detail as in hours on a deal, opposing counsel, description of deal, is not something I really remember for everything I’ve worked on. Is this all required for non litigation /corporate move. I suppose I can find detailed reports in my current firm’s filing system. Any insight much appreciated!
