How long does it usually take to hear back after MBB final round? I think this was off cycle for experienced hires and it’s been 7 working days - should I keep waiting or move on? TIA!

I heard back a little over a week later and my recruiting season was pretty chill. HR is absolutely swamped right now, nothing is confirmed yet. All the best!

Agreed, I can confirm that recruiting is busy as heck these days here too. Wouldn't sweat it much, but don't be afraid to politely reach out to your recruiting contact if you don't hear back within another day or two (to answer your q: I was also experienced off cycle hire but heard back the same day, which is not helpful for you lol)

Took two weeks in similar situation. Had strong indication I’d be getting an offer after the interview. Definitely follow up with recruiter.

Thanks folks. How would you recommend reaching out to the internal recruitment lead (without coming across as desperate)? 1 week ago they mentioned they’ll be in touch in 2 or so days

Which career path will u choose for yourself and why? Options - 1) CXO of large tech co., like FAANG 2) partner with b4/mbb 3) CXO of a unicorn - like stripe or what Facebook was in 2006/2007, with a huge upside when it goes public 4) start a company of ur own that has a decent shot of becoming successful. All the options will make u rich and yes u only have 4 options.
