However, the offer letter turned up on Saturday with the contract and the terms and conditions. What am I pissed off with?
- No paid overtime, which I will be expected to do as required by managers - OK, standard programmer fare. I shall not be signing the working time directive opt-out supplied though (it has an explicit "I don't agree" bit instead). Still, a mark against.
- Travel - as described by the recruitment guy (bites tongue) an occasional trip to another company site, something like a quarter way around the M25. As described in the contract, I am expected to be available to travel across the globe for a month at a time.
- Working - not allowed to work for any other company during my employment. I'm unsure of how common this is, but I know my last two employers didn't say this. I've heard sysadmin types have it normally. I'm able to spend every night hacking on open source projects until my eyes bleed, but one paid second would be illegal.
Talk about this for me please. I guess I'd like to know if I'm right to not accept terms I'm not happy with or am I eating from pie in the sky.
Oh, hello HuSi.
