I am a junior supervisor in CS. Share a bit of perspective. Very hard to get rid of non performing, lazy, self entitled oldies. You know those that come at 830, go canteen 1 hour, 2 hour lunch break, 45 min toilet break and knock off on the dot kind? And don't produce any real work and keep saying "not my job" kind? Good luck firing them because, it is just difficult.

So to solve this some smart aleck scholar interagency high potential working group thought of hiring people on contract so can get rid of them if don't do well.

Great idea except it penalises the young, energetic and good performing new hires. Who feels demoralised after their contracts get renewed instead of being placed on perm status. So they take their skills and energy elsewhere.

We get left with borderline or average people who are happy to just have a job.

This is for non-degree holder hires. Not sure about degree contract holders.

You won't know, the use of contract is to give the agency the upper hand and flexibility to manage headcounts. Depending on agency, the usual practice is you need to be probated for 1 year before emplacement but varies across contracts. My department practice (from my observation lah) is to extend people's probation (even the high performers on contract) to squeeze even more out of these people and see their true potential. Unfortunately sometimes it is being used by the managers to get rid of staffs they do not like by failing their performance reviews.

I often wear shirt skirt with gstring. Every time go to my director office I will flash it to him. In one year I was converted to perm. It all depends on how u want to play politics.
