Tech firm. Most Big 4 market tech and data but underperform compared to those dedicated to that area of business. Deloitte has a good tech culture (if you consider them Big 4) EY has some but not much, KPMG is probably the lowest on the list and PwC is a mess in tech.

Work as a solutions architect/sales engineer at like AT&T or IBM and make bank. Your comp is tied to sales. Large sales = large paychecks.

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?
