    I'm an offshore contractor (freelancer) achieving 3D visualisation purposes for a company.

    One of my tasks is to use Unity editor to export Unity packages, in addition to another tasks for the company (Unity irrelevant).

    If my company doesn't provide me with a pro license as I believe it earns >200,000$ annually.

    Also, one of my tasks is to train new hires which I believe they won't buy a pro license afterwards.

    Known that my annual income <100,000$ annually.

    Can I have a discount or a voucher to buy my own license, if so, how?

    Also, I know that training hires may violate the terms. In this case, which is better, to buy a license only for myself or quit my job completely? Known that the company is having Unity artists with no pro license paid whether or not I work with them.

    I need a guidance about this legally and ethically.

    Thanks

    If you're truly a contractor and not an employee AND you do not open their project in your editor, then based on the answer I linked below I think you can use whatever Unity license fits your case (if you made < $100k last year, personal and < $200k plus, and Pro above). You do need to be careful with third-party assets though.

    If you have doubts, contact Unity Support.

    I'm not feeling the authority to give ethical advice, do whatever you feel right.
