Consultants: To think that consultants are different than any other part of their industry is naive. In fact, a company of consultants may be the epitome of sheer ego and techno babble personified.

And, don't forget IBM, HP and Sun, etc.Their sales people act like consultants and their threats to do business their way or else is used more often than not.
