We used to call consultancies with armies of mediocre coders "body shops". You could get all the warm bodies you want for a project. Just don't ask for credentials. Same thing?

If I were to go body shopping, I'd get one that was about 20 years younger and had better teeth. Also more hair on the head and less in the nose.

I don't agree with the comments Body shopper doesn't just have mediocre developers. It may have really good coders, designers. The only reason to join a body shopping firm is to get an entry into the country.

Cheers,
Rahul

The good ones we just didn't call body shops. We had a great team of coders and managers alike from Thoughtworks. They brought a lot more than warm bodies.

The shop that gave us unspectacular coders has been sold and changed names a couple times I think. They grew to fast and over-promised, at least in our case.
