PLANS & PRICING
Being a full-time employee and a freelancer, both have pros and cons. What is best for you, depends on your priorities and current situation. Here are both deconstructed:
As a permanent employee, you will have access to benefits, insurance coverage, and pension when you retire.
You will have a higher income and may not have to worry about income tax as those are paid by the company on your behalf.
Companies are indebted to permanent employees- their salaries are paid regularly, every month. You will have a steady flow of income.
There is greater job security while working for an organization.
As a freelancer, you will get the opportunity to have a good work-life balance and pursue activities that are not directly related to your work.
This type of work allows for more flexibility- you can schedule your work days according to your convenience.
There is lesser job security as you may not get work in some months of the year.
Freelancing cuts out costs such as those relating to commuting to work everyday.
Freelancing has an added level of responsibility as you are directly communicating with your clients.
To understand which of the two options is best for you, make your own five year plan. Set your goals and decide which career path you need to pursue to achieve them.
Rudderly recommends: “Before starting out on your own, get a few years of work experience. This will help you gain credibility and diversify your portfolio. You will also make great connections that you can use when you start your own business”.
