    dont let them know that you you think this

    switch your brain to idle

    make sure you get EVERYTHING written down, particularly when they ask you to do some tulip idea and you know it will blow up

    do NOT offer advice to avoid tulipstorms, you will become their bitch

    Have look at your notice period. Seek another contract. Get other contract. Give notice. Leave.

    What's the problem ? I used to worry about such things as a permie, now I just view it as a longer contract.
