Had a second interview with the head of the group and after he told me they’re still bringing candidates in for the next couple of weeks and I should stay tuned in. So, what gives? Should I take this as a soft rejection? It is my experience that when a firm wants you they’re more inclined to give definite timelines and not hedge their bets as much…. Am I reading too much into this?

I think you're reading too much into it. Even if they love you, they are unlikely to short-circuit the whole process to hire you. They have candidates identified and interviews scheduled. So you just need to be patient and let it play out.

I’m an immigrant with H1B. Been wanting to get out of my firm so badly but every time I apply outside, I start getting dragged into work at my current firm.I was going through some pretty rigorous interviews (I failed them) and have been in a slump since. Meanwhile my current firm keeps dumping work on me and I can’t find the time to apply outside. Anyone been through something similar? I’m losing hope.The politics is also so toxic, they started screwing me over since my last performance review.
