What are the advantages of working as Consultants over Regular Employee?

Taking into account people’s different likes, attitudes and skills, the “perfect job” is a myth. Much the same, there is no perfect combination of relationships between employers and employees.

Here are some points to consider when choosing the working relationship right for you:

  • Consultants generally earn higher salary. Consultants, both those working independently and those working for an agency or service generally earn higher salary than the regular employees. In return for this advantage, however, comes the likelihood of less favorable non-salary benefits, like medical coverage or retirement savings plans. While these non-salary benefits are critical to some employees, others gladly exchange these options for higher salary..
  • Consultants generally learn more new skills. Consultants are often called upon to complete work that is either too complicated or specialized for companies to complete themselves, or that is critical and needs to be finished quickly. Either way, the consultant is often in a great position to gain hot new skills more rapidly than direct employees may be. Permanent employees, however, may be more likely to truly become experts in a single area within a company.
  • Some consultants do not have payroll taxes deducted from their salary. This gives them instant access to all their earnings for the purposes of investing or spending. This, of course, does not mean that they do not incur the same tax liability. In fact, a disadvantage of this payment method is the increased work and burden placed upon the individual to track, withhold and pay all of his or her applicable taxes.
  • Consultants are highly in demand during times of economic expansion. Consultants are often needed to work in areas where growth is occurring and where existing talent is short. This works in the favor of the consultant, as they frequently seem to be “in the right place at the right time.” When the economy slows, however, or even when an individual company’s performance slows, consultants may be the first employees to feel the pinch. Historically, during these times, troubled companies retrench and focus on their more basic needs. Permanent employees’ futures may be more secure in these instances.
  • Consultants have the opportunity to work with many different types of organizations in many different capacities. These experiences can accelerate career advancement and offer greater flexibility for future employment down the road. Permanent employment with a single company, however, also has its advantages. These employees may develop a fondness and commitment to their employer that is unknown to the highly mobile consultant. This employee commitment and loyalty is, for some, the most important aspect of their careers.
