ZS fish, Had an interview for Business Technology Consultant just over a week ago and despite repeated attempts (four times now) recruiter says she still hadn't heard feedback. Is this basically her saying no? it's been over a week now and I have another offer from B4 for Manager that expires soon, ZS knows about the offer but are now taking a lot of time. B4 offer is 190k and ZS in level setting with recruiter said about 165k plus 14k COLA.

Nah, this is just that our people have been busy and didn't get a chance yet to all meet up. Sadly, this happens sometimes during recruitment. I'm guilty of accidentally delaying some decisions myself. Our recruiters are very honest!

If it was no they would say, agree with other ZS’er this is the team being crunched and not having calendars aligned for a debrief call
