Re: I've little sympathy for permies
As a contractor, more often than not brought in to do they work they either should have done, or have loused up so badly it needs redoing, I'm paid only because the work gets done.
You know the opposite is also true right? We had a contractor come in to work on an Alfresco deployment for us, as we had no-one with Java experience. He produced virtually nothing in 3 months, at which point he was ditched and we head hunted someone who could actually do it as a permie.
