Just had an hiring manager straight out declare that they need several months and ballpark of 30 (!) interviews to hire someone. It’s not even a crazy prestigious firm. In this job market. Thoughts? How can someone be so out of touch? It sounded like a dealbreaker to me considering everyone is interviewing with multiple firms at the moment (at least I am) and I see no valid rationale for that long of a process.
Does anyone know of any business oriented, but novel/fictional books with interesting characters? Not looking for self-help, more of actual literature with business themes/plots.

Offered a new gig outside the company. For those who have left, how much of the decision should be tied to my manager and the team I work with vs the company and long term opportunity?
How do you approach giving feedback to your boss who is not great at managing, but became your friend? I’ve been in this situation twice. Both times required me to escalate it to their bosses (direct feedback didn’t work or wasn’t an option), but I was afraid to shatter our friendship this way because it would’ve been obvious that I told on them. I’m still good friends with both, and while I no longer work with them, I still wouldn’t bring myself to tell them.
Work is crazy and I had three anxiety attacks this week. This is a new development for me so not really sure how to handle. Any recommendations on how to deal with these at work?

If an ad agency underwent a zombie apocalypse, which department would best survive?
- Strategists? Would they provide some brilliant insights (e.g., 99.69420% of us will be food soon) and help form a plan?
- CDs? Would they just send junior CWs and ADs into the wild as scouts and creative meatshields?
- Acct? Would they just make the zombie clients happy by telling them where the creative meateam is hiding?
- Recruiters? Would they just 👻 the zombies?
