=============================================================== From: Aaron welch ------------------------------------------------------ WARNING: This is a rant, so read at your own discretion. This is what kills me about Chattanooga. All of those positions pay DOUBLE that everywhere else. I know the guys at IMSA and they are good people, it just sucks to see that this is what CONTRACT rates are. My contract rate for IT stuff starts at $75/hr and data scientists usually pull in $100-150/hr and sysadmins $40-50/hr. Further proof that Chattanooga is disconnected from the rest of the world. -Aaron On Thu, Sep 12, 2019 at 3:04 PM Michael Harrison wrote: u . ***************************************************************************= ***** y ll he ments ies abase pplied Math g, database is ods ls / es le ent of the e e of o e t new ience no , ng e of =9Cyes=E2=80=9D to st-paced perience.

=============================================================== From: Billy ------------------------------------------------------ So looking a little further... I used Glassdoor for salary comparison. Based on the past jobs I had in Orl= ando, Tampa, and Atlanta for the past 15 years, Glassdoor seems to be pretty= accurate. The average W2 salary for a data scientist for Chattanooga on Glassdoor was $= 91k. In Atlanta, it=E2=80=99s $98k. Talking to a couple of other folks that s= eems about right. For system administrators, a W2 salary is about $60k on average in Chattanoo= ga and $66k in Atlanta (though there are current listings for $75k). Obviously, it varies based on experience. Now to compare the W2 vs the 1099 hourly rate we need to do two things: 1) convert the hourly to salary or W2 to hourly via multiplying/dividing by 2= 080 hrs respectively. 2) add a 50% premium to contract 1099 wages to factor in lack of benefits an= d additional taxes paid. *Data Scientist 1099 vs W2* So the data scientist 1099 position is $30/hr. That equates to $62k per year= salary. The Chattanooga average is $91k W2 wage, factoring in a 50% premium to turn t= hat into a 1099 competitive wage, that=E2=80=99s $136k or in hourly terms: $= 65/hr. Doing the the same for system admin: *System Admin 1099 vs W2* Offer: $25/hr ~ $52k W2 salary Average: $60k ~ $28/hr 1099 competitive wage: $43/hr *Conclusion* I=E2=80=99d say they=E2=80=99re off by a factor of almost 2 across the board= . --b ote: h qualified candidates from outside as well. nt is available to them to submit applications. ****************************************************************************= *** Data Scientist to join our team.
