Re: [php-49] freelance to full-time

Yeah I agree with Josh, the large reason I started contracting was because was done with Corporate bureaucracy bullshit. After working where I'm at now for the last few month, I realized what little gems are still out there company wise that actually care that you're not a number.

My current boss is giving me a run down of the realistate market and how to spot good homes to buy  so I can flip or rent them for passive income. I know it sounds silly, but it shows that he (and the company) really cares imho. Hell he's the reason I landed this house in Renton at such a steal.

Clear on the other hand was what I could only equate to a clown college, the larger the company, the less the seem to regard employees, but the more money you make. Its a really fine balance between eating at night and staying sane.

Really depends.  

Microsoft has a lot of inner fighting between teams (You must follow this path!).
Amazon has a lot of "it's this teams responsibility!".

I'm a huge fan of just doing the work and getting it done... sometimes corporate culture and meeting (stupid meetings...) get in the way of getting work done.

Is the corporate mindset a bad thing? I'm really dreading having to commute ...

I think the big thing that you won't realize until you actually get a FTE is how far away you've been from the "Corporate" mindset. It's a really hard transition imho.

So I'm contemplating in the fall leaving freelance and going
full-time. I was wondering for those that have been freelancing for a
long time and then went fte, did you encounter any challenges coming
from a freelance background. I can imagine having a nice portfolio is
super important. Any thoughts?
