I’m considering freelancing vs. FT. Can you give me a sense of what a reasonable hourly rate is? Is there a formula based on salary? Any other tips for getting started would be much appreciated, too!

In strategy, it’s your annual salary minus extra 00s = your day rate. Eg if you make 100k a year, you make 1k a day

It’s much higher than fr because you’re covering your own insurance, benefits etc , and bc you likely won’t be filling every hour

Most agencies don’t like to hire freelance account directors as you would be the lead client contact. Something to consider before making the decision.

I've done it and I've had freelance account help of various level on my account when I've been FT, too. It's possible! OP, There is no "formula" for your rate and many suggested ones are made up. Research freelance rate for your level and market and the nature of the assignment.
