    As someone mentioned in another comment, a big advantage of having employees instead of consultants is that the skills stay in house when projects finish instead of walking out the door. I wrote some pretty complex code that future programmers are going to spend alot of time trying to figure out from scratch if they ever need to work on it. Aside from the code and associated data, they'll also spend alot of time familiarizing themselves with the business and the processes they are trying to model. Those are things which I STILL know about my former consulting clients but which they get zero value for now that I no longer work for them.
