I am currently on a contractual job, since 2012. I am a W2 employee, the contractual position. I make more money hourly, however the direct-hire, I get my PTO, medical coverage, 401k etc.
I have now received a direct-hire offer from another company, however I am torn, I love the contractual job and its hourly rate, however I was always told never turn down a direct-hire opportunity.
Also by me being in the U.S on green card status, I wouldn't be eligible for unemployment if the new direct-hire job doesn't work out.
Am I right in my thinking direct-hire is better than contractual and therefore I should leave?
