I ve always heard (and calculated out based off of my bill rate) that what you cost the company is roughly 2x your salary. My bill rate, for instance is roughly 3x my salary. So, 1/3 of that is my pay, 1/3 is my additional overhead, and 1/3 is profit/covering non-billable overhead.

May be talking oranges and apples? I was referring to an employee’s “take home” not total salary vs total cost with good benefits.
