    The 3 lessons Oi've learned from contracting are:

    Don't work for an Indian company
    Don't work fo an unsupportive tyrant
    And never work out of a portakabin

    Portakabin.

    As is usual, since I've worked there, it's shut.

    And not only contractors but Permies/promotions too.

    Some cabins can be very nice - current set up has AC, showers, kitchens, mains water, power, ICT & a nurses room, a multi faith room,

    But yes some can be very "basic" especially when they are stacked 3 high without the proper footings!
    Growing old is mandatory
    Growing up is optional

    Loved the AB Automotive portakabin, especially the bit where the aircon periodically pissed down the back of someone's neck.

    That was always amusing.

    Especially since it wasn't me.
