Trying to gauge the meaning of response from PPED round. Was interviewing for a position in one of the big 4 and the principal in the PPED round mentioned at the end of the call “ I will have my recruiter reach out to you and discuss the next steps”. What does this mean? is it a good sign or not? Any idea folks?
