I had an onsite interview at Facebook 2 weeks ago and the recruiter told me the feedback had been positive so far. He was checking in with the hiring manager last week and I haven't heard anything back since then. Does this mean they've made another offer and are buying time or do things get delayed sometimes? I have another offer that they are aware of and I need to decide pretty quickly.

- Let the fb recruiter know the deadline.
Also depending on other company the recruiter might be ok waiting for fb to get back to as long as you frame it right. Eg: this is a big move for me, i intend to stay at my next gig for at least 4 years and want to make the best decision for my family by considering all the options i have.
Also for other offer setup time to meet new manager and team. You need that before accepting anyway and recruiter wont expect you to sign without meeting them. As a bonus that will buy you time as well
- Im talking about the other offer. The other company's recruiter will wait till after you meet the team. If they dont then its not a good place to join since they'd effectively be asking you to move blind or with very limited info gathered from interview and perhaps a phone call with new manager
- Facebook big quesoAbsolutely "gently" remind your recruiter. I had the same situation. I told FB that the other offer had a hard deadline and they had a package out to me that day.
