The fact that people are shocked tells me a lot about the big 4 😅

Cool..cool

Just got a rejection after final round of interviews with a tech company. The recruiter called and gave positive feedback but indicated that no one was ultimately hired. He did not believe it was anything to do with me but rather, “issues on [Company A’s] side.” Does anyone know what that means? Should I even hold out hope that they’ll reconsider? The process was very intensive with about 6+ interviews with several written/verbal assessments. Not sure I want to start the process over
