Report Masters Of Illusion: The Great Management Consultancy Swindle in House prices and the economy Posted September 17, 2009 http://www.independent.co.uk/news/business...le-1788556.htmlSo we are paying millions out to people who know even less than the people they are advising. Excellent. Now if we where paying a crack management team who had managed hospitals before and improved services / productivity etc... then that's good investment, paying out millions for people to talk sh1t to you seems stupid. My other half is a management consultant contracted to a government dept.... Sheâ€™s on a Â£100k + a year but being charged out at probably 3x this amount. She says that half her colleagues are moonlighting on the side doing â€œother workâ€ and shall we say not exactly working late hours. There appears to be little to no come back on either side and effectively some have gone â€œnativeâ€ within the dept. There are 40 of them how many is this multiplied across the whole government? And weâ€™re paying for this? WASTAGE. Of course I canâ€™t complain!
