I had a final round interview with Blackrock about 3 weeks ago and haven’t heard anything. I’ve reached out to the recruiter and hiring manager for updates but nothing. Is this normal? Just confused why they can’t tell me I’m cut or they’re still deciding…

Same situation here with another firm. I think two most likely scenarios are either the decision makers (who are often senior and very busy people) couldn’t find time to schedule a call to agree on the decision. Someone could also have had vacation or whatever. And the recruiter can’t really share these details so the communication temporarily stopped. Another possibility is that they are still interviewing other people.

Did you get the role?

How long did it take to get a reply?

Did not make Google hiring committee due to 2 borderline interviews. Phone interviewer (American guy) gave me a strong feedback, 5 on site interviewers, 2 Desi guys gave me borderline feedback, remaining 3 American guys gave me strong feedback. Google requested a follow-up interview and the additional interviewer provided good feedback as well. I am not sure what's wrong with me, every time I interview with desi interviewer, I tend to screw things up.
