    I don't think I've ever gotten close to two years. 18 months tops, I think.

    I managed over 4 years in one stint at HP - not bad considering they have a 2 year rule in place for lesser mortals.

    Back in the day, it was not unusual for contractors at BPX in Aberdeen to have been on site for over 16 years. I think that one guy had been there since the days of BNOC in Glasgow. It had been pretty much his whole career.

    My barometer for being at client co for a long time (too long in my case)

    You start going to leaving drinks for permies that joined after your contract started.

    For me thats time to move on.

    Ha ha - at current client a few permies retired/left etc and I ended up as longest serving team member. All good because they can't get rid of me now really.

    Don't get NLUK going now Brillo.....

    6 years on JSA at £74 a week is well over £20K of NLUKs taxes - used to pay for my holidays to Florida (and Llandudno)......

    (It was actually only once for 12 weeks - over 5 years ago. Still almost £900 - paid for Disney tickets that year lol)
