    And what's the correct lesson from this? Get yer price right, NOT go via agent who'd add more on top (and possibly underpay you anyway).

    I went direct (contracting mind) and it ended up costing me. Mainly because clientco were friends of mine and it was very difficult to negotiate with friends! There are benefits to having an agency in that they can often strike a better deal than you could.
