My own pet peeve is companies where the proposal to conslult is part of an ongoing power struggle within the company. Several times in the past few months, I've opened talks with companies and been at the point of drawing up the contract only to find that the person I've been talking to either lacks the authority to approve the contract, or that there's been an internal coup, and the contract has been vetoed.
