Long story short, I’m being courted to join my company as a full-time employee. Personally I think this is tits for the following reasons:

Awesome health care (health care field yo)
Vacation time
Stock options

However I’m being asked about salary requirements. I know there is a difference between contract and salaried but to be honest I’m not certain of the gap I’m looking at. Can any of yous guys help me to come up with an idea of how much I stand to “lose” by moving to full time as far as take home goes? What should I tell ‘em - should I just give them my current rate and see if they bite? I currently pay about $700/m in health insurance and am working in the IT realm of health care.
