Follow-up?

I had a pretty good interview 10 days ago. This was my 3rd round, on-site, and lasted several hours. A few days later I received a call form HR. They said they'd received positive feedback and wanted to discuss my compensation target, which they said was "in their range." They then said that they'd be in touch...the next day I received a reply to a thank you e-mail I'd sent to one of the people I'd met with. She just said that it had been a pleasure to meet me as well and I should call with any questions.

A week later, I haven't heard anything further. I was confident a week ago but I'm starting to get nervous. Should I call or e-mail HR to check in if I haven't heard by the end of the week?

Is this a boutique/MM or a BB?

Yes sure you should ask HR by calling or emailing them to ask about an update on your interview and further process. By doing so it is important for you to get on final decision as to look for new job or wait for some days for this.

Doing follow up is more important as it may help you to land on job.

Yeah just shoot them a note towards the end of the week. If no response, consider following up with the woman who replied to your note
