    Both of them actually has to. An employee may get fired for not being cautious. For an example, you are an encoder and you accidentally put wrong data. You may lose your job with that simple mistake and no one might hire you again. Now for the freelancer side, you have to be cautious as well since you will lose credibility. Let's say you are a writer of some sort and you wrote some things that the society can't accept. You will lose readers and eventually your reputation would go down.

    Well it depends on your needs if you require guaranteed income then you would be better off working as an employee for a company but you maybe happier choosing your hours of work being freelance.I prefer to work for a company so I have guaranteed income and you can always work in your spare time freelancing.Thanks Jordan Durante

    Employees should be more cautious because companies can hire freelancers anytime to replace them if they will not perform well their duties and responsibilities. Some freelancers ask for low pay for their services and the result of their work can be better.

    Freelancer and employee is both more cautious, but you can choose what makes you happy or what you think that you want. The tips is think about it if you want to be an employee, there have a rules one's you cant do the rules they have a possibility to fired you. But if you want what you're doing in that job you can earn more money. But if you don't want to be an employee you can go to the freelancer even your income is become cheap. But both of that job is important because both of them built a good reputation.

    Both employees and freelancers have responsibilities as they have compensation depending on their jobs so for me both of them need to be cautious specially making sure of doing their work effectively and properly. They both need not to be complacent with their job because a good employee or freelancer must come up with the best they can and quality output.

    Employees and freelancers have to be cautious all the time in many ways. Both have their responsibilities to comply to their jobs in order for them to maintain or even improve themselves with the career they are pursuing. Having a great career is having yourself at your best all the time whether employee or a freelancer.

    Both employee and freelancer should be cautious in terms of finding a right employer since both are investing time and efforts.As a freelancer you have to be resourceful in finding information about work you’re going to apply since scammer nowadays are everywhere as well as employee you also have to choose the right job suitable for your skills to be able to earn and be appreciated by your employer because some company once their employee didnt meet their standards they look for your mistake to be able to be kick out of the company.So,i think both shouldn’t be compared because both are working hard to earn in their chosen field.

    Nothing seems wrong with these temporary arrangements. It’s work, it’s full-time and it’s steady income for a specific duration. Yet the arrangement has neither the benefits of being a full-time employee, nor many of the benefits of being a freelancer.

    Before we consider why these arrangements are problematic, it’s useful to understand what those various benefits are. I’ve written about these benefits previously, but here’s a quick summary.

    They are used somewhat fuzzily interchangeably, but when there is a distinction, it is that a freelancer is self-employed possibly with a contract whereas a contractor may or may not be self-employed with an employment that is usually defined by the terms of their contract.

    For me, both freelancer and employee should be cautious. Both can be a possible victim of fraud. Freelancer can work to many companies or people as long as he can do it right and on time while being a employee means you are committed to the company or to that people. Both should be cautious in choosing the company or people that they will work for. Do some research about the reputation of that people or company. Take a look if the people or company has a good reviews by other employee or freelancers. Do not let your hard work be wasted. Think and choose wisely there is a lot of legit people and company hiring an employee and freelancer. Be smart in choosing the company and people that you will work for.

    Freelancer, his work and reputation is what we'll keep him making a living and accomplishing great jobs. Employees on the other can be mediocre and still pass evaluations to get their set salary. At the end of the day, it will still be very important for both employee and freelancer to maintain a good reputation. In my opinion, freelancers need to be more cautious.

    Freelance. Because since this is a online job there are possibilities that it is a SCAM freelance. So we need to be cautious, be aware of the website that are you browsing, be observant if it is a legit one or not. In order for us to be sure visit the website and view the reviews behind it and look if there are some certification and accreditation for that website.

    Both are taking a risk. The best way to avoid any issues is to check references and develop some communication and trust before proceeding.

    Both a freelancer and employee. A lot of freelancers getting scammed are in the news today. Also with some employee. Just be sure with everything that you are going to apply or work for.

    Definitely the two of them, but still in uneven rates, I've been in both sides and it's only logical to say that their is something to risk in both states, the difference is the impact of the risk, as an employee you are a part of a proper system, that makes thing clear either for your rights or obligations, but still comes with a large amount of stress as you work under someone else's direct commands, but as a freelancer you're a part of a more free system and a great community maybe not a really organized one but good enough to show you the way to handle your business.

    Both. Irrespective of your career status. It all boils down to one's integrity and character.

    Both should be cautious. An employee needs to do his/her job without making any mistakes that would make the company in trouble. A freelancer needs to be cautious too because if he makes a mistake, there is no company that would help him/her. We all need to be cautious for us be stable in our jobs and for us to live.

    Both for sure for both employees and freelancer are working with the people that hired/will hire them. so they need to keep up the good work and show that they are capable of handling the task/job that are given to them. as long as they follow the rules and regulations it wont do them harm.

    Freelancer should be more cautious because they are working for different companies at different times compared to the employee which are only employed by one company. Working as a freelance is a high risk, they have to research thoroughly about every companies background and make sure that they are legit so you won't be fooled by swindlers and scammers. It is also important that they have a community to fall back on for support, accountability, resources, and helps them stay motivated. Just like any other job, being a freelancer is not that easy. We have to earn our reputation to gain our position as a freelancer and we have to be more patient to be successful in the world of freelancing.

    I think both of them. They both working they need to careful their actions and make an effort on their work. Working is hard but if you have patient you can do all work with cautions. We aren't perfect. But sometimes it needs an extra effort.
     
  24. Being employee for me. You have benefits, salary and bonuses. you are secure that everyday you will get paid.

    try to be employed first, aside from the benefits that you get. you will learn a lot of things, like self discovery. how to deal with different kind of people. how to deal with your terror bosses or be inspired and motivated with you boss, patience, communication skills, and technical knowledge. feed your self first with experience.

    Freelancer and being an entrepreneur. It is about paying your dues as an employee to get proper training and experience for future plans. But do not focus on being an employee for the rest of your life. Learn as much as you can at a very short period of time and applying everything in your freelancing jobs and starting your own network and business

    Employee should take caution because of they do a mistake it can read to losses to the employer as a result he or she can be fired
    Freelancer has an advantage because he works for many companies and if he mess up he is disqualified by a particular company but that does not mean he is fired.He can continue working for the other companies.

    Freelancers. A freelancer can often feel like they're still working for someone, especially if they're working a lot of hours consistently on a project. A self-employed person tends to feel more autonomy. ... Some independent freelancers can make way more money than a self-employed individual, even one with employees.

    Both of them. As long you are not financially independent you are still working for someone.
