    Back in the day I never achieved £300/day.

    It was even worse if you were hardware.

    The joys of embedded software.

    20 years ago, £400 was the benchmark in my area, if you had additional skills you might push it up to £600 but that probably involved some quite messy project management. (That wasn't for me - MF will be along shortly to confirm )
    Now £300 (usually inside) is a push, so I've scaled back (and I'm not touching agency related roles at all) but I don't think the UK IT industry is benefiting from this new hard regime, and I'm grateful that it's not my problem.

    Back then in embedded, you needed FPGA, VHDL and suchlike to get £50/hr.

    For my pedestrian crap it was £35/hr tops.

    I note that more recently rates of £45 - 50/hr seem to be quoted quite often, though again they want the VHDL stuff.

    And once you lose all the expenses it's not really worth the effort.

    I'm fecked if I'm paying for hotels and mileage out of taxed income.
