Consultants seem like pseudo Mercenaries, you feel like the job is almost done and end up paying for it. I guess they are paid for their glibness rather than ‘execution’ skills. No puns intended

They come in and stir the pot, more than likely, in the direction that you were incline to do so to begin with. Then they are gone, never having to deal with the repercussions of their meddling. It’s a beautiful thing!

To be fair to consultants, ideally they should be hired from within large corporations, where they rightfully belong. When you are but a cogwheel in a large system, your margin for error is smaller vs., say, a startup. No need for broad experience in the former case.
