I prefer IC status - StillAnMT Posted: Feb 6th, 2017 - 7:24 am In Reply to: Well I have said for a very long time now in most cases - PAMT
I prefer the flexibility of IC status. BUT, I am very careful about what accounts I take and what software I am required to use. For instance, I stay away from companies that use free FTP software - lots of uncompensated time. I stay away from web-based platforms. I type in Word and learned how to make very complicated macros. I use Shorthand to the nth degree. I would use a web-based platform if I could type the work in Word and copy-paste into the web-based platform. My MTSO owner uses Bytescribe Docshuttle to manage the voice files (an awesome program).
With all of the above, I have doubled my typing speed. That, along with the flexibility of IC, is why I prefer being an IC over employee.
Does not work for everyone, but it sure works for me.
