But that doesn't make sense. If you didn't know what the cost of the FTE was at first, and came in and charged set rates, there is a 50% chance you cost the same and a chance you cost more or less. You have to prove if you do cost more why it would be more efficient and effective to use a MSP vs a FTE (or a group of FTE).
But it dawned on me, I think we are all trying to assume and generalize a lot of different factors which leads to disagreement.
I can agree that if the same company hired me on as a FTE that I work for as a MSP he would be paying more to have me vs just me staying as MSP. But then would come a conflict of interest I couldn't work my real IT job as a FTE and also 2nd company as a FTE. That would be insane on my part!
