Why do tech companies prefer consulting talent?

Accenture

Because there are lot of people who will do their work and just leave. What lacks in Indian workers is the vision, thinking about tomorrow, communication skills and mainly solving business problems.

You see a lot of them just try to be good at one technology or language. They think that is enough. That is short sightedness. What happens after you are ten yrs into the job? Are you OK with sr resource title? Don't you want more responsibilities? At present, there are many people who do not want headaches but money.

Consulting experience is highly needed as those are the guy who face the client, takes pain in understanding requirements and takes responsibility in finding or designing a solution. Sometimes the guy takes execution burden too.

A tech company needs good people who can solve problems and not hide in shadows. This is the reason why you see that many consultants have a different view on the workings of a company as they have understanding of the inner workings. People who complain are the regulars that can be easily replaced.

Career advice question. Currently AP / Principal in MBB. Have always performed strongly until a recent case crash with significant ramifications, meaning Partner promotion is probably delayed by 12-18 months. Not keen to wait so exploring options, e.g. with T-2 firms (EYP, S&).
What would be the best way to navigate the obvious question “why are you leaving MBB for us?”
Thanks team!

I work out a lot and I’m ranked as one of the top lifters in the world. I’m fairly muscular and do my best to cover up at work so I don’t draw attention to myself since I work for a very conservative company or have the “bro how much do you bench” convo with the men at work. It’s gotten to the point where I’m feeling out of place at work and dread going into office. I’m seriously considering a total career change or going remote (Which is hard to do considering my line of work). Thoughts?

I had a job for 4 months in between 7 years in big 4 and my current role that I’ve been in for a little over a year. I’m about to move jobs and I’m thinking of removing the 4 month job from my resume. Should I ? If I do, do I prolong my time in big 4 by that amount of time on my resume or just have a 4 month break? Too many questions pop up and it’s honestly such a random role that doesn’t fit on career path. Any thoughts?
