Hi all,

I am in the US and my question is regarding the US software industry.

I am working as an Independent Contractor with a company. I single-handedly developed afew products since last year that really did well. Infact there is not a single project that I did with the company that was not sold.

So, if an Independent Contractor is doing really well, does s/he deserve a bonus like the company employees get.

My contract is going to get renewed after six months. At that time I am thinking about asking for a raise. Usually by what percentage is the remuneration increased if the review happens annually.

No.

0% - 10%.

During 2000 - 2004, the average annual salary increase was around 3% for IT workers.
