First Option: Hire A Power BI Developer As An Employee
Deciding to hire a Microsoft Teams Developer can make sense for certain businesses, but it has important implications that need to be carefully considered.
At least $91,218 for a yearly salary for a US Teams developer.
Lots of startups, companies, and businesses are offering special benefits such as unlimited paid leave, unlimited coffee, free gym memberships, and much more to attract top talents. These are all costs that should be factored into hiring full-time developers. First, let’s take a look at some of the most basic company-paid benefits according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics:
- Legally required benefits (Social Security, Medicare, unemployment insurance): 8.5%
- Insurance (medical, dental, life): 7.6%
- Paid Leave: 6.7%
- Retirement and savings: 4.3%
- Annual Bonus: 3.5%
- Supplemental pay (overtime and premium): 2.6%
- Employment training tax: 0.1% on first $7,000
What exactly are indirect costs? They’re overhead costs that contribute to the company’s day-to-day operations. Indirect costs can be divided into three broad categories: fringe benefits, overhead, and general & administrative (G&A). Companies spend an average of 25% and 18% of employees’ salaries on overhead and G&A.
In other words, a Microsoft Teams professional hired as a full-time employee would cost, in reality, $160,705.
In the United Kingdom, seniors take up to £64,3K a year. This is $74K annually. More affordable but still too expensive for many startups and SMBs.
A small reference point for you: renting an office in a city like New York costs, on average, $15K per employee and year.
When working with in-house developers, you have to pay them even when there is no work to do.
Second option: Hire A Microsoft Dynamics Integration Company
Software integration companies can be generalists or Microsoft Pure Player. They exist in different sizes, Microsoft 365 specialties, and offer end-to-end Dynamics 365 implementation services.
(Very) expensive! For these companies to offer you decent Power BI, they need to run costly business operations (with full-time employees, training tax, compliance, sales development, tax, insurance, office rent, etc.).
No interest in small projects
Generally not interested in small projects.
Cannot start immediately
Cannot start a project immediately: Need lead time to get ready.
Lack of flexibility
- you cannot quickly start/pause/restart a project according to your needs.
- Changes to projects’ scope or tasks sometimes take days to be enacted and sometimes result in extra “penalty” costs for you.
- It is hard to stop doing business with them due to legal terms clients have to accept first to work with them.
Staff more people than needed
Tend to staff more people than needed for projects.
Rely themselves on freelancers
They rely on freelancers for many projects as they often lack senior and expert profiles in their team, leading to a more expensive bill for you to pay with sometimes difficulties integrating these freelancers with their teams.
Low expertise offshore talents
Some integrators sometimes offer offshore developers, but although they are cheaper than their western colleagues, the quality of their expertise is (way) lower.
Third option: Dynamics Recruitment Firm
They became trendy these last years for companies willing to break free from draining relationships with integrators to find the right freelance Microsoft Teams developer.
They generally don’t have Teams necessary proficiency to screen the candidates seriously.
Not cheap: They apply a 10-30% markup on average on top of the already expensive western developers’ rate.
Limited pool of talents
Limited pool of available talents: Even if their addressable database of freelances might be significant, in reality, they offer you a limited set of candidates for your needs. Indeed all headhunting firms fight for the same freelances available on the national. Making the available ones more expensive.
Hard to get the best talents
Most sought-after freelances do not like working with headhunting firms as they consider they commoditize their expertise and reduce their rate.
No backup developer
Because of the business model, they cannot offer you a backup developer with the same skill set in case of a problem.
Fourth option: hire yourself through online freelancing platforms
When a company decides to find itself a Freelance Microsoft Teams developer, it mainly goes to online freelancing platforms like Upwork, People per hour, Truelancer, Guru, Hubstaff, etc.
Low prices do not equate to a high quality
Unfortunately, low prices do not equate to a high quality of work. Hiring a beginner or an underskilled Power BI contractor frequently happens on these platforms.
It is highly time-consuming to search for the ideal contractor, interview them, etc.
Lack of responsiveness
Lack of responsiveness of some contractors to your job request ( they sometimes don’t respond).
No talent vetting
None of the contractors registered on these platforms have been vetted.
Some fake contractors registered on these platforms are trying to scam businesses looking for freelances. Despite the fact it is not that frequent, it can happen.
If you are not satisfied with the contractors hired, you will get no support from their customer support. All you can do is go through the same tedious hiring process to find a better profile.
