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.

Re: [Chugalug] IMSA IT jobs on 1099 contract

I look at these as entry level positions.

TWC suffered a lot from “hiring them to leave” coupled with “on the job training to seek better pay.”

A hiring company may think they’re being at “market value.” But, they really need to be looking at their retention and turn around numbers. If staff only stay for 1-2 years, then they’re not paying enough for the stuff they’re asking for.

Chattanooga has a cheaper standard of living, median home values are 60% of Kennesaw, Ga where I am. However median listed price is only 87% of my area.

That said, many companies hire “remotees” (mine included). Also, if you had to commute once a week for 3hrs round trip for double your income - would you? If so, that could be you driving to Atlanta once a week.

Final thoughts:

“You get what you pay for.”

Remember the old hiring adage:

“Train them to leave, but treat them well enough to stay.”

Apparently F5 is an application delivery networking service, but when
I hear "F5 guy" I think "someone who knows enough to mash reload on
their browser to fix things."

F5's are Linux powered Load Balancer - You give them a list of IPs and URIs, and it can do Round Robin or other forms of load balancing for large web facing applications.

Back in the early 2000s, I guess it was running bsd at the time, we had a pair of 6U or 8U F5’s across 5 pops doing GSLB.

I’m sure the smaller 1U ones today outperform that bad boy, but it was neat watching it work.

Was fun sitting in the 65°F datacenter plugging my laptop directly into the core switch downloading a bunch of ISOs at wire speed.

Re: [Chugalug] Fwd: FW: IMSA IT jobs on 1099 contract

Billy
In reply to this post by Michael Harrison
So looking a little further...

I used Glassdoor for salary comparison.  Based on the past jobs I had in Orlando, 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’s $98k. Talking to a couple of other folks that seems about right.

For system administrators, a W2 salary is about $60k on average in Chattanooga 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 2080 hrs respectively.

2) add a 50% premium to contract 1099 wages to factor in lack of benefits and 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 that into a 1099 competitive wage, that’s $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’d say they’re off by a factor of almost 2 across the board.
