If the prospective employer isn't trying to sell you on their 
organization and the work, introduce you to people, etc., and doesn't 
seem receptive to questions... then I think that is actually telling you 
a lot about what the job might be like for you.  Your secret interview 
of them has cleverly acquired this information.

Whether or not one accepts the job, given this information, is a 
separate matter.  We all have to keep an updated sense of where we want 
to be and go with our careers and livelihoods, what risks we are willing 
to take, what our options are, etc.  We never have perfect information, 
so we have to make the best decisions we can "on the ground".

I think I've led this far off-topic for the list, so I don't plan to 
post further on this thread.
