Honestly; initially didn't mind it, but then it became expected. I'm a guy and the first date would end... And it would be incredibly obvious she'd be okay with getting down and I end up being the one dragging the inevitable hookup over a couple dates

Yeah. Meant to mean pick your friends wisely. Generally not meant for mating decisions. But jokes aside, choosing to have a one night stand does not mean someone has no value or morals, etc.... I know many couples married still and they fucked each other's Brains out and I know many couples who waited and met the same bird with the same feather( 😂) and are divorced today.....

Is it just me, or is the big 4 sales culture low energy?

Maybe it's the ex-finance consultant in me, but the approaches I've seen in my 5 year tenure so far have me thinking this isn't catering to my strengths and won't be the best move to stick it out to SM/PPMD.
