That's out of the ordinary. Think you might want to let that one go - that's a lot of your time to spend when already employed full time. Pretty inconsiderate to your schedule

If it’s for a SM position, it’s probably just a problem with their internal decision making . It’s unlikely to change for you. If you really are interested, you can press for a decision, but it’s probably better to tell the recruiter you’re withdrawing from their trashmonkey process.

Agree with A1, is this for executive level position? Why so many people? Maybe management have problems with decision making, major red flag

Trashmonkey is a fantastic term. Never heard it before. I'm stealing it.

Actually this is for a Senior Manager position. Any idea how I can tell the recruiter know that this is getting too much and they need to make a decision...

On the other hand, I have withdrawn from processes that were taking too long because I realized that was symptomatic of a larger problem that they didn’t know how to run a business, nor would they respect me in my role

What level position?

This seems very out of the ordinary. I spent most of my career in industry and even for exec jobs never met with more than 4 - 5 people and most of the time they will coordinate them into the same several hour long time slot to be respectful of your time

Wait till you start working and need to get anything done - 50 people will need to approve

Really depends on how badly you want the job. Personally if I really wanted it I’d just bite the bullet and suck it up

The belief that you should be able to move from HCOL to LCOL and not have to take a pay cut is ultimate in socioeconomic and geographic privilege and outright entitlement. Nobody is going to give LCOL a raise to move to HCOL. The work you do is the same, you produce the same value, bill the same rate as peers in another geography. Take a pay cut or give LCOL a significant raise.
