Different stages of reject after Facebook onsite

My understanding is:
1. Recruiter will directly reject you if he/she sees no hope your packet is going to pass the debrief/hc.
2. If packet is mixed, a debrief among all interviewers + a director will be held, and a consensus is made to admit or reject. If packet is a clear hire/no hire, no debrief is needed. Directly reject or go to step 3.
3. If your packet passes debrief, it goes to a final exec review which determines level & compensation and rarely overturns hire/no hire decision.

    Interview, debrief, candidate review (final stage for hire/no hire), offer committee. Candidate review includes VPs and directors. Level is determined at candidate review.

    I take most people get mixed reviews.

    If the debrief is mixed, does that mean anything? Recruiter says try again in 6 months and didn’t get any formal rejection emails. Not sure what to make of it. I know it’s still reject but not sure if this means I need to go through the entire process again or can I just go to onsite, etc.

      You can skip phone screen next time if you did well on the 2 coding round. If you messed up on coding round, you'll need to redo phone screen.

    3 - Not true. Your compensation is not determined by exec review. It’s the finance team.

      Do they consider current comp while determining the offer?

      Unless disclosed voluntarily. And it is still legal to obtain in other countries where Facebook has campuses.

    Do they send rejection emails or will they call? I have a call scheduled today at 4:30 for "updates"
