From what I have witnessed. Yes.

Curious as to what role and level, OP?

SPM1: well one of my coworkers (same level) was offered an MD role at EY. My company is is more like a bank: Manger, VP, SVP all roll up under me. But I will chat with the recruiter tomorrow. Worse that happens is that I thank them and tell them I am not interested.

Not SM/D level but yes.
