Silly question: Where is the job based? In the USA? Where in the USA?

Will you be working as a freelancer (as you say "not in-house")? This will make a huge impact on your taxes, medical insurance, etc.

How many years of experience do you have?

In case it helps, I remember hearing of a PM working in LA (in-house) earning about 75K a year.

Are you an employee? May 12, 2008

Full-time, but not in-house? Is the company trying to say that you would be a contractor? I think the IRS would think otherwise. See www.irs.gov/govt/fslg/article/0,,id=110344,00.html

In general, someone who performs services for you is your employee if you can control what will be done and how it will be done.

So any outsourcer telling you to use Trados (for example) will be responsible for:
* Withholding Federal income tax,
* Withholding and paying the employer social security and Medicare tax,
* Paying Federal unemployment tax (FUTA)
* Issuing Form W-2, Wage and Tax Statement, annually,
* Reporting wages on Form 941, Employer’s Quarterly Federal Tax Return.

In-house but not in-house May 13, 2008

Having worked as agency staff and freelance. The project managers in the U.S.A that I have worked with and know personally received from $28K to $50K per year. It depends on the agency, the location, experience. But I have heard of very experienced PMs receiving $70K per year, but that means at least 5 years experience as a PM.

Most PMs are at the location, look into the matter further. Hope this helps.

Be careful before you accept the position May 13, 2008

Hello María José,

Please be sure of what they offer you and how they offer it to you, I had a very bad experience in a situation just like what you are mentioning, of course I cannot mention the name of the company in here, but I can only advise you to please have everything in writting. And just like mystymy says the range can be very big from 28K to 50K a year.

Good luck!
