Yeah I never did on cycle, only interviewed off cycle very selectively with firms with good culture/mix of consultants and bankers. Worked out great for me eventually

I have had several rounds of interviews for a role at Visa London office.

TBH, that round seemed as if they want to make sure I have understood the job well. And there has been radio silence after that. Any idea how to read this? I have another offer and deliberating if i should just accept that.
