What I was trying to say was don't look at the title on their business card,
rather judge them on their results. You can call it what you want,
professionalism, consultant/contractor, etc. This is not limited to
temporary
employment either (although consultants get pointed out more readily).
I've seen the bad and good traits in every company I've been - both by
temporary and permanent staff. There are those that do it the right way
and those that don't. And Booth was right, hopefully the ones that don't
are spotted early. I just couldn't let the original statement pass that
basically consultants are only in it bilk their clients out of money.
Consultant bashing appears to have become the favorite sport in too
many places.
