To any recruiters or informed folks, I am curious to learn what the general difference in pay is from hourly contractor (through a 3rd party, not independent) to being brought on as a full time employee. I know this varies from company to company, but I'm curious to get some insights. At my last company, when I was converted, my rate was significantly decreased and they justified it with benefits, but is this always the case?

i dunno if its a matter of risk as much as it is the argument of benefits, stock etc. I personally think its bullshit, especially if you're contracting through an agency, cause whatever theyre paying you, you can add another 25-40% on top of that. so if youre making 50 an hour, the company is likely paying 80-90 an hour, which in a year is 160-180K. I cant see benefits costing more than 60-80k a year for one person, that seems ridiculous to me. I think the only risk is for FTE they cant just end your employment anytime they want for any reason. in that sense i guess theres risk.
