Big 4 is better at what they do but pays less. Depends how you define “better.”

come on...what are you talking about? unfair comparison here

Unfair in what way?

Better in terms of prestige, WLB, pay, exit opportunities, culture etc

Quality of work at CFGI (from an accounting advisory standpoint) is definitely not the same as that of big 4 accounting advisory groups

I’ve been talking to a guy for a few months. He works at a big 4 and will have bouts of silence (like multiple days) in response to anything from pleasantries to nudes. When he’s engaged he’s totally into me and talks about how much he likes me and wants to move things forward and then nada. I love talking to him when he’s present but don’t get the hot/cold. Sometimes he blames work and others he doesn’t address it all. Is he just busy and I don’t get it or is this all red flags shady?
