After onsite Facebook interview

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.

    I think you should be aggressively following up with them

    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

      FB doesn’t hire for teams. You choose your team during your bootcamp onboarding

      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

    Absolutely "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.

      They haven't asked me for references yet. Would they bypass that in this scenario?

      If you have friends at fb be proactive and share those anyway. Give your friends heads up as well to speed things up.
      Im not sure if external references matter.

      Unfortunately, I don't know anyone internal. The process started with me applying online and getting a call from the recruiter.
