Should I still be keen to work for a company who has had such a long & involved interview process?

I work in Marketing as a Product Manager. I had my 1st interview with this company a month ago, with 2 HR staff (2 hours long). A week later I had my 2nd interview with HR, Business Unit Manager & Marketing Manager, I had to do a presentation & answer more questions (another 2 hours). They told me they would make a decision in 1 day. Well 4 days later I got a call saying they wanted me back for a 3rd interview. 2 weeks later I have the 3rd interview with HR, B.U.M & other Product Manager. I had to do a role play, answer a case study, analyse data & answer MORE questions (another 2 hours). Do you think this is a bit far fetched? Or is it the norma? I could understand if it was for a more senior position, but really, why can't they seem to make a decision?
