I filed my STEM OPT report late this year due to delays from the legal team and my intl advisor encouraged me to retain proofs in case I get in trouble filing for h1b or green card in the future. Is it appropriate to just screenshot the work emails + dates and send it to myself? What’s an ethical way of doing this?
Is short term office rotation a smart idea considering the travel + visa ban to UAE from select group of countries. I have joined Kearney Middle East and have been stuck in my home country for a while (started working remotely). Working without the residence visa is resulting in tax implications and further complications in applications for other visa’s. what should I do ?
No more H1b premium processing ...
Trying to use my Saks Fifth Amex Plat credit before Eoy. I know you’re not technically allowed to buy a gift card but does it still work/count towards the credit? Anyone tried recently?
This horse has been beaten to death but suggestions on Amex Plat vs Brilliant for Marriott loyalists? I already have Gold that gives 4X on dining and supermarkets (my biggest expenses) and don’t wanna part with that. No I don’t want CSR, thank you.
If it ever comes to that, would you give up your Indian citizenship to become a US citizen? Or would you just stop at the Green Card?
Hi Guys, Need your suggestion. I dropped papers and after a month I got a mail that my profile is shortlisted for Google business unit inside tcs. They say if visa will be raised immediately and I will moved to UK. What's the probability of this. Hope it is not a lollypop to make me take back resignation. Tata Consultancy
Hi All! Does any have insight to the company culture at AMEX? Is it somewhat friendly? Inclusive? Are they 9 to 5 or do they burn the midnight oil? Any and all insights are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

EY people - does the firm do anything to help with marriage based green card applications? I got an email to start working on my PERM stuff but if I plan to get married anyway, isn’t it faster to go that route?
Any visa holders here who have rental investments? What’s on the realm of what’s permitted and what’s not? I’ve read online that you can have rental investments and property managers but can’t actively manage it.

Hi folks! Does anyone know if you need full original copy of h1b i797 notice or just the bottom section of it for DL renewal? I only got the latter from the HR so wondering 😕
Can someone please ELI5 for the GC process ? With every other post about being PD date to ‘15 I’m kinda lost? Need to understand how to read the visa bulletin! Date of filling is ‘15 but action date is ‘10. So who’s getting their GC? Is it the people who applied in ‘10 or those who applied in ‘15?
Are they going to target Visa workers next?
11,000 new covid cases today - most since January. Am I missing something? What ya’ll doin these days? I found the headline puzzling since the city technically could be a herd immunity scenario (state is at 69% vax but city is higher) and many unvaxxed already had covid. Do we think it’s mass events like concerts or back to the office or just the consequences of thanksgiving? Curious to hear your theories, not a dissertation on politics
What’s big law like in San Francisco? Anyone have any insights to firm cultures or billable targets?

Total newbie. Today the same work that took me 5 hours to complete took 1.5hr for a coworker. I’m keep seeing this pattern on different kinds of work, from research to formatting. And I‘m definitely not a perfectionist.. I don’t know what the issue is and how to be faster. Since we’re remote, its hard to gauge how others are working. Did anyone go through this?
I interviewed someone and they were clearly sexist. All the other interviewers - all men - liked him a lot. I’m saying no to him and trying to articulate why. Please help? What do I say? The role he would come in for would need to support me and my team- among others. I don’t want to be the difficult person here, but he would clearly not be a good fit and I get the feeling he would not be a good partner to me.

So he tested positive days before the debate. Then miraculously tested negative. Then days after, he tested positive again and ended up in the hospital. After the fact, in his town hall with Savannah Guthrie, he said he never tested positive until *after* the debate. I’m sure it was all totally above board… and naturally, Trump says Meadow’s claim is fake news. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/dec/01/trump-tested-positive-covid-before-biden-debate-chief-staff-mark-meadows-book
I am a relatively new Project Leader at BCG and have a very crazy and packed schedule with no time to care for my food, exercise, etc. I just found out I am pregnant and I am nervous about how I will take care of myself and the baby with this busy lifestyle. I would love tips on how some of you navigated through this phase. How to ensure you are eating/exercising right? When/how to tell your bosses/team so that they are mindful? General tips for the first trimester? Should I change jobs?
Project schedule drastically changes 24/7 yet they need to know PTO way in advance. I need to do all day on-site final rounds but cant schedule interviews w/o knowing project schedule. What to do?
L4, 140 base, 200RSU, 10 signon, standard 15% bonus for SCE. Good offer for 3YOE? Currently making 230TC, will make ~260 next calendar year. Seems like this would be a pay cut for better WLB
How do you ask/negotiate a sign-on bonus if not mentioned? Assume most positions today with a $220k+ base + bonus + RSUs can command one. Is that accurate?
