Hello Everyone. Just looking for some general, helpful input that I am sure this group can provide. I am facing a change in jobs. My current company is closing. I am weighing offers from two companies within the same industry in which I currently work. One is a standard W2 arrangement where I am an employee of the company. The other offer is from a company who would employe me as a contractor (1099). I am inclined to go with the company offering the contractor position because of my gut feelings about the people and company I would be working with. As this would be my first foray into the contractor arena, I would welcome any ideas, input, viewpoints on the advantages of this arrangement or disadvantages. Just to add a bit of detail. It is intended to be a long-term position as a sales representative.
