We all know the horror stories. Contract looks great but instantly goes sideways, pm is a jerk/idiot/crook/other, customer asked for X but demands X^n effort where n >>1 but pay rate says n ==1, new contractor offers $X then comes back in a few months with the "we need to cut costs on this project and everyone is getting a 20% pay cut if they want to keep their job" then you find out they totally underbid and always had plans to backfill your seat with 1/2 pay replacement.

You know, work life. Describe your nightmares. Use names so we can all avoid the bottom feeders.
