      No but the LinkedIn dude almost certainly is completely separate from MSFT, has a higher hiring bar than amzn or msft, and gets paid more than either of us at the same level.

      @wizardry if you want to do it the right way, create your own S CORP or LLC, and do independent contracting or 1099 through an agency. This is a pain in the ass for companies, but the set up can provide amazing tax benefits. A lot of things can now be considered business expenses, like your car payments and mileage.

      Full time means 24 by 7 involvement
      And getting paid for standard 8 hours
      Reward is corporate ladder movement if one is lucky

      Contracting is get the money for number of hours it could be more than 40 per week if you are busy and no management shit after 6pm as you are not in any rat race on any ladder

      Was contracting for a few years. It definitely has a lot of advantages but like anything else has drawbacks as well. If you don’t mind the responsibility of finding and maintaining client relationships then it can be really rewarding.
