I have an offer with a T2 consulting firm that I've accepted but I have another offer at a tech company that I plan to go with. With everything wfh, do I have to renege or can I just work at the consulting firm as a new hire on the bench for a few weeks before quitting once the workload piles up?

These firms will fire you for whatever reason they want. No need to be "ethical" here. Look at all the posts of people fired with no warning. Go for the latter.

Question for consultants- Why don’t more of you go independent and work for yourself?
Given the discrepancy between what you get paid and what the company bills the client, you could meet in the middle and both make out great. If you have one or two clients that have work long term, you will make far more money, have less stress because you don’t have to deal with the logistics of 2 companies and have far more control over what work you do. ESPECIALLY if you are a consultant who is actually good
