Take your current salary and divide by 2040 to get hourly gross salaried. Multiply by 2 to cover additional taxes, benefits, technologies that you will have to cover. Add 50% to cover utilization gaps. Add more to make it financially more worthwhile than staying salaried.

No real resources that I have found. I know what my minimum is for both W-2 and 1099 and just don't go lower. From my experience, stay away from recruiters that ask your rate before taking about the position or your experience. Also, think long and hard about all inclusive rates.

Finally leaving PwCs AC. While PwC seems decent as a firm, the AC is awful. Beyond the uncompetitive salary that leaderships lies about and says is competitive. The place is designed to stunt career growth. Even if performing at the core level and confirmed by your partner you have to wait two years so the firm can retain their margin. This model is beyond explicative and the only reason people take it is because the lies told during interviews.

Just saw a hotels.com airport themed commercial that said Houston, Tx at the bottom. My first thought was "That damn terminal doesn't look close to any terminal in Houston."

The new Jack in the Box spot - which celebrates America and all things American - uses the English national anthem, “God Save the Queen”, as its soundtrack. Irony or idiocy?

SA3 passed up for promo to M by several SAs only two years on the role. Finding it hard to give a damn anymore. I mean why bother pouring so much effort into everything only to end up like this anyway?
