What would you do if you were offered a permie job that would offer more cash than you could shake a stick at?

Bollocks to all this "being in business" - it's the money that counts. :smokin

Gracefully turn it down. If there paying very very well, it will mean they think they own you. If the permie rate is £100,000 a year, then you should be charging as a contractor £100 an hour, according to the usual rule of thumb. That's £170,000 gross.

I was recently offered a permie job with my current client. The salary was very good, and it is a nice place to work. But what really made me reject it was the fact that I wouldn't be able to take 12 weeks holiday a year.

My last permie job had 20 days leave per year, and you had to take three between Christmas and New Year. Job was OK, location was great, pay reasonable, but the holiday was the crunch that sent me contracting.

Depends on what they are offering as a package - money isn't everything, it's a lifestyle choice. I work away most of the time, but only work 9 months a year and spend the rest with my family. I'd rather do that than have little or no holiday but more money.

Currently the client I'm at is making all the wrong, very very wrong strategic decisions and very soon it will all end in tears.

I'm sat here thinking "if I was a permie I'd have to give a shit about this" instead of just increasing the rate and taking the extension for sorting the mess out.

Also just spoke to a permie who was filling out her review bollux documentation ahead of her 360...

no amount of money could ever compensate

£500k+ p.a. is a very, very tasty basic salary. According to this calculator (http://www.listentotaxman.com/index.php?calc=1&year=2006&age=0&add=0&taxcode=&period=1&ingr=500000&Submit=Calculate) that works out at over £25k per month net.

:eek

Shame about the £200k p.a. deductions though...
