A term for a consultant brought into a corporate office to evaluate efficiency. This consultant is typically an omen of future downsizing and layoffs. "The Bobs" is a reference to the movie "Office Space" where two efficiency consultants named "Bob" were brought into the office.
Boss: "We've brought on a consultant to make our business more efficient. Please cooperate with Mr. Smith as he learns more about our organization. He will be interviewing some of you to find out more about what you do."
Employee: "Uh oh, looks like The Bobs are in town. I better get my resume updated!"
