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.
