Thanks for all the responses. So I been a contractor so far and it's my first FTE job. So wasn't aware about all the benefits that comes with the package and that's what happened. Also my pay took a nose dive due to the FTE status as well > 30k+. Raytheon might be a great company to work on, but for me, I am OK with whoever pays the highest check. After all at the end of the day, it's money that pays the bill and not company status or reputation. Regarding blacklisted by recruiters, I applied directly through their website and got the interview. So no third party involved. I might keep this job for few years at least and as you guys suggested I will claim it on taxes. FTE is not my thing, I just took it since it was the first offer received and that's it.

Obviously, you're not very emotionally invested in the job. Maybe you "forgot" to ask about relocation "on purpose" (unconsciously). In some locations, Raytheon outForces a lot of staff, so you might not be there as long as you expect. Your mileage may vary.

Yes, your salary goes down as a FTE. That's because your company provides benefits, such as insurance, 401k match, etc. that you don't get as a contractor. If you're only in it for the money, you should have probably stayed a contractor. But remember: with the ACA being enforced starting this year, you no longer have the option of going without health insurance to save money.
