in reply to I've had my current job for

Started here as a contract 3 years ago. Apparently, my little ruse worked, as they thought so highly of me, they bought my contract out early and brought me on as a 'team player' after only 6 months.

I now sit in my corner and look with scorn on the code of others, meanwhile hoping no one looks too deeply at mine.

*WHEW* Even I can tell I need coffee after _THAT_ remark

    Someone talking of becoming a permie in a (albeit seemingly) positive way?
    I'm impressed.

    Doesn't it usually go more like... "i've gone permie...
    ...but they say they have a great retirement plan..."

    Contracting for 3 years and no idea why anyone would stop.
      Positive? Well. I'd say "Im Bitter, but the benefits are good."

      I have a freedom/benefit ratio that is well within my tolerance at the moment, so I'm no _too_ anxious to go looking for the "darkness I know not of" so to speak.

        ...and I'm sure that it's fairly comfortable right now knowing that a company will look bad dropping you, while it will look good dropping the contractors (like me).
        I have to admit it, I'm getting increasingly sensitive to the plight of people getting laid off in North America, hoping this trend doesn not come my way anytime soon.
        Have fun in permie land, and enjoy the shade.
