Why is there no salary or paid vacation?

We offer professional freedom. To ensure every member of Free Agent Source has essentially the same freedoms as working independently, we created the same conditions. We earn when we are working (delivering value for clients), we don’t earn when we are not working. Nothing limits freedom and flexibility more than a salary and paid vacation. When you are compensated with a salary and paid vacation, your employer has essentially “bought” your entire availability. This means the amount of work you are expected to do (full-time), the rate paid and time off are all fixed, and directed by your employer. While many people find this arrangement to be a mutually beneficial exchange, those who join us at Free Agent Source don’t see it that way.  Freedom and flexibility are more important to us and in order to prevent the company from telling us how much to work and how much time off we can have, we forego a salary and paid vacation.
