Better for who? If there’s weekend work, why would you want a weekly rate?

I’m a strategy VP and make $175K which my math translates to $175 an hour. [various methods of converting annual to hourly including benefits, etc]. $175 hr = $1400 per day. depending on how long the contract is, I might discount that down.

like

My hourly rate is 100/hr, which is competitive for my discipline/city, and I'm well below VP level. In what market does an SVP ask for 110/hr? That's so low.

@Strategist 1 that’s not how freelance rates work. I would say 125-200 but it totally depends on agency.

Depends on where.

Way too high for a VP. An SVP level gets like 110-165 per hour. So vp significantly lower.

like

110 an hour annualized to 215,000 ish for a year. And that’s on a 40 hour work week and 49 weeks per year. I doubt many FT SVPs are working only 40 hours for the same money. That’s the going rate a lot of agencies

agreed with GCD - freelance rates account for the fact you’re not receiving benefits, PTO, not working 100% of the time, etc.

I don’t know why anyone would do a weekly rate? Just do a day rate. If you work on the weekends you charge your day rate. Am I missing something ?

Need advice. I’m in industry now and report to Controller who reports to CFO. I found out my raise is 2.75% and brought it up to my boss and he said “that’s what everyone is getting as raises are based on market, not inflation, and your salary is within market range”. I have a skip level meeting with the CFO tomorrow and want to mention it’s the smallest raise I’ve ever gotten or some other comment to bring it to his attention. How do I phrase that in a professional manner?
