No response from the recruiter since onsite interview

Facebook onsite interview was four days ago and I got an offer from another company on the same day. I sent an email to the Facebook recruiter three days ago and left a voicemail yesterday asking any update but no response until now. Can I just assume there will be no offer and accept the offer from the other company? The offer due is 12/7.

    Four days and you want to assume you didn't make it and move on? No. Be patient. December is always a little slower. Drop an email to your recruiter and let them know your deadline for the other offer. Most likely one or more interviewers haven't submitted their feedback yet, causing the delay.

    If you want, I can check if the recruiter has been sick / on PTO. PM me their name.

      I am also facing a similar issue. Can you help me out as well?

    I've been in the hiring process with FB a few times (obviously accepted the last position), and there has always been a significant delay in decisions on next rounds after the recruiter screen (up to, and including, getting an offer). You have to be patient with FB.

    Your other offer isnโ€™t due yet, why accept it early? Just wait and see

    Hopefully a Facebook person is able to post on this, but to me this would be a pretty good sign that I should take the other offer unless I didn't want it/need it and could keep looking.

    Thank you all for the valuable comments. I got an email from the recruiter that he will give me an update soon. It looks like one of interviews didnโ€™t post his review yet.

    People keep posting questions like this about the hiring process slowing down. This is totally normal for this time of year. Lots of people are OOO and there are sometimes reasons to push start dates into the new year.
