    Generalists (I also hate the term) are usually more suitable for teams.

    Being a generalist helps work better as a team player as they can have better understanding and be empathetic to other pieces of the puzzle and do not tend to fall into their own specialization loop. By this I don't mean specialists have no empathy or understanding of other's expertise.
