Sounds like you want the perqs of being an employee, but you also want the
money a contractor makes. Pick one.

I guess you don't think much of a contractor's potential to contribute.
Contractors are supposed to do as good a job (or better) as an employee,
aren't they?

As somebody else on this list has already observed, it really sounds like
you're not cut out to be a contractor. There's nothing wrong with that.
Enjoy your new job, and please be nice to any contractors they may hire!
