Hi! I’m an Indian currently on H1B in US. I got my I-140 approved for the next 3 years and need to step outside the country to get my visa stamped. I’m thinking of visiting India in December and using the drop box feature to get my visa stamped. Any intel on how long does drop box is currently taking to send the passport with visa stamped? I’m hoping to be in india for 2 to 3 weeks and unsure if I would get my visa stamped by then. Is there a source where I can see processing times for drop b?
Last week I received my green card after 10 years of wait. My employer and attorney asked me to send front and back photocopy of my card which I promptly did without thinking much. Is this normal for employer or attorney to ask? Should I be concerned?
I was selected in the second round for H1B and was approved with an effective date of October 1. The law firm has not received the physical I797 and I’m very worried about using up my 60 days of unemployment. Does the 60 days of unemployment apply given that it’s an initial H1B?
Why is Deloitte immigration team so difficult to deal with ? I left Deloitte cause of the immigration team and they ghost you for months every time you need documents for H1B/GC. How do you deal with this ?
My H1B is expiring this year and my company has filed for renewal. With cases in India escalating and visa appointments limited (currently only August is open) - is there a way to get it restamped in the US?
Can i come back to US after a 2-4 years gap outside? I’ll leaving to take care of parents in India but want to come back. Have had H1B for >6 years with i140 approved. Will I need to re-enter lottery?
My company has started my green card application (PERM has been submitted) and then I married an American citizen. If I continue the process with my company and receive the green card, is it possible to get citizenship with 3 years under the green card instead of the 5 years required under employment?
Should I contribute towards 401k if I am on H1B and have no desire of staying here long term?
Anyone here whose GC is processed in California? PWD, PERM (and all other filings ie, H1B transfer) is delayed compared to East Coast?
Need some guidance here: I had my H1b transferred to a new employer recently. I am planning to go to India in December but I am not planning to get my visa stamped as my old h1b stamp is valid till July 2022. Am I risking it too much?
Does anyone know what is the Green Card Policy in IBM? What is the criteria for Green Card process to be initiated?
Any recent Deloitte H1b transfer, did Deloitte use premium processing and how long did it take?
D folks. My H1b extension is under process. However I just got done with my current project and looking for a new one. While on the beach, does D file Extensions just stating home locations or ...
My lawyers filed my h1b extension and amendment together even after advising not to by the v and I advisor. I’m getting freaked out. Any suggestions ?
Currently on H1B (it has been less than a year) and just applied for Green Card through marriage. I really want to leave my current company and don't want to be tied to H1B while searching for new job. Is it safe to leave your company and use your work permit from the GC application?
Currently recruiting for Senior Data Engineers for top management consultancy that can be based anywhere just have to travel 80%. US Citizen or green card holders only Great comp package
Does anyone know if Deloitte will fire you if your visa's set to expire in 6 months? In a tricky situation because I'm waiting on welcome letter for my green card interview.
H1B transfer is in progress. The start date on LCA is 12/06, but I might get an approval from USCIS next week itself. **Can I join the other firm before 12/06? Even with full 2 weeks of notice period, I will be free by 11/20. Wondering if I can join the other firm sooner
Has anyone went through the Consultant Development Program for Financial Services at EY? I’m interested to know the salary range. (2YOE)
With so many professionals working from home due to Covid-19, what are your tips / strategies for being productive when WFH?
After months of networking and trying to break into consulting, I managed to secure one interview. I was really nervous at the beginning of the interview so I started off a bit shaky and didn’t come up with the perfect structure, but did really well on the rest. Today I got the rejection email and their feedback was that I need to work on the structure. I had worked on my structure for so long and I only messed up because I was nervous. I feel so defeated with no more interviews. Wtf do I do? 😓
Received a call from consultancy.. She said forwarded my resume to two clients and there will be a communication interview alone. As I'm from technical support I'm little bit afraid to attend this bcz whatever they ask she asked me to provide positive response. Like Is it okay to handle both technical and customer she asked me to tell yes . But I'm afraid to tell. Is this really genuine.
Would you say I'd be better off taking a product manager role at a young company 12 years old vs taking an offer in F500 as a strategy associate. Goal is to eventually own divisional P and L with shot at C suite
For those in AM: thoughts on CAIA, CIPM, etc?? I was wondering if these will actually help vs. just waste of money.
People on long term travel engagements (6+ months) how often do you take a remote week? Have been on two projects each over 7 months with no break in between. The non stop travel is killing me.
I myself am quite skeptical of MBAs in a technology and skills driven world. But that being said, it's bizarre how we automatically associate "lawyer" with "high status and wealthy" when we don't do quite the same with "MBA" and consulting-related stuff. Source: WSJ
Hi, wondering if reaching out to FAANG company recruiter on a mid-senior level counsel role via LinkedIn is useful. Or is it frowned upon given the large amount of applications they are likely to receive on a daily basis.
I got a 1 rating and a promotion from BTA to consultant, how much of a raise do you think I will get this year????
Kind of embarrassed to ask this, but how does one ask for a sign on bonus? I’ve never asked for one but I always hear about them. At what stage do you ask and how do you phrase it? I’m usually really bad at talking about/negotiating pay and it’s something I’m trying to work on when I eventually switch firms.
Onsite interview: tech round, Case round & managing partner core consulting round. Which one has most influencing decision making effect?
I haven’t worked with a therapist before but know I’m totally burnt out and need some time off from work. Has anyone successfully started a relationship with a therapist and gotten their support to do an LOA shortly after starting with them? I’m worried because I don’t have a long standing relationship with a therapist, they’ll be resistant to supporting this. Would appreciate any advice
Most billable hours in a day (within 24 hours)? Mine has been 20 and I’ve hit that 2x this year.
I’m a fourth-year associate who just got an offer to go in house. My experience is in litigation but I’d be working on more corporate matters, which scares me. But I hate billables and firm culture and the in-house company is a huge company where you can make moves in once you’re there. My salary would be the same but I’d get better benefits and bonus opportunities in house. Plus I’m a mom and will have on-site childcare. Should I be scared that switching from litigation will be boring?
How long did it take you all to reach the 6 figure salary? I know it varies depending on where you're located but im curious where you started and where you are now
Anyone here invest in whole life insurance? I just started working with a financial advisor and I'm questioning whether this is pretty commonplace for lawyers/ a good idea. Just want to hear if anyone has an opinion on it. Thanks!
