I have few questions about corp to corp billing rate for J2EE devlopers with 7-11 years experience. The experience is mainly with 2 life cycle J2EE projects (large scale mission critical projects based on RUP, agile devlopement and worked right from Inception stage and worked in architect and developer teams).
For this type of experience, 1)what is the corp to corp rate range expected.
2)How much does it vary on average in terms of geographical locations in US.
3)What is the market trend of hourly rate increase each year? Is there a $5-$10 increase per year. 4) In case a company gives a choice between permanent salary position + benifits and corp to corp. 4a)How to negotiate corp to corp rate? --->Would the corp to corp rate be salary figure + offered benifits value + 2-3 weeks vacation worth of amount + health insurance payments? 4b) Also Should the first pass negotiatation of corp to corp start with $5 more than expected?
Your valuable input is highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your valuable time and interest
