Not sure? Coming in as an analyst from banking it’s slightly better, is it not competitive compared to other cities?

Hello Fishes. I have received positive feedback from KPMG interviews for consultant position and have submitted documents. I was told I will be getting a call from HR for negotiation in a day or two and then final offer letter will be rolled out. It has been 4 working days and I haven't been contacted yet. Has anyone faced such delay? Or Is it something I should be concerned about?

Timing is awful, but finally got a job offer. Problem is my team is incredible busy and understaffed because of turnover and transitions. I feel bad leaving them high and dry. What is your commitment to your old team when looking for new work?
