Hi, guys...

I was just offered a position at a gig I REALLY want. However, while they
will convert me to a W-2, they want me to start as a 1099.

I realize that this is a very open-ended question, but for those who have
previously been a W-2 contractor through an agency and are now a 1099
contractor directly to the employer, what issues have you found?

BTW...the discussion can skip the part about taxes...I know about having to
pay the employer end of the taxes...this is already included in my thinking
and included in my anticipated rate.

Thanks for any insight you may have.
