Hi, I've been working essentially freelance for the past 5 years and have built up a reasonable client base. I've been approached by a larger company who are considering asking me to join them - an option that is very attractive to me. Obviously this situation is a little different to than if I worked as a web developer and simply wanted to change employer as I will be bringing a client base that spends a fair bit of money each year into their company. I'm due to sit down with them again in a few hours to discuss options for the merger and I could use some suggestions for what options I should be focusing on. My major concern is that I take paid employment and they drop me after a few months and I loose my client base. What can I look for to give myself some protection against this? I guess I'm really looking for some ideas about what it would be reasonable for me to ask for eg: - Fixed salary plus percentage cut of the money my clients spend [this was their initial suggestion] - Them to buy my client base at a fixed price and I take a salary from them - I take a salary only but have option to retain my client base should I ever leave or be asked to leave - Any value to asking to be brought in as a director? [I'm not too clued up on whether this would offer any value or security to myself] All comments welcome. Thanks, Chris. -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of apathetic Sent: 13 October 2006 10:09 To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: Re: [thelist] PDF templating for ASP.NET On 12/10/06, MILLER David R. <dmiller at mcc.ca> wrote: > Does anyone have recommendations or advice based on their own > experience? http://www.pdfsharp.com/ Tim -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
