A consultant has a head the size of two football fields and constantly
reminds you of the wealth of knowledge and experience that they have over
you. Then when they get fired for not performing as a consultant, you neverhear from them, or of them, ever again. Life is bliss.

A contractor is someone with a head the size of 1/10th the football field,
that comes in and fixes up all the crap that someone who quits the company
has created to wreak havoc upon the employees. They usually don't get fired.
They are usually asked to become employees of the company, but refuse due to
the fact that they like being slightly independent. And love avoiding a
company's internal politics.

Thank you for such an unbiased, balanced, and nonjudgemental assessment of the two classifications. I'm sure it says a lot about your abilities and analytical skills.
