Some firms do it all the time; it's just that they are usually more
subtle about it. "I'll need three peer recommendations and one
supervisor recommendations from each of your last three jobs. Please
provide the name, title, phone number, and address for each. Oh, the
supervisor has left that company? Do you know where he is now? What
other manager would be familiar with your work?"

This method can get leads for new clients and for new consultants.

Is it ethical? I don't think so, but apparently they have no problem
with it.
