On h1b grace period now, if I do manage to get a new job, how long will it take for employer to file h1 transfer? I know consultancies do it faster but spoke to cognizant today and they told 7 weeks!
I hear a lot if folks are getting denials on H1B extensions or client location change and are being asked to repatriate in a week. Is this true?

Hi 🐠! If I had received a 221g in the past, do I need to say “Yes” to have you been refused a visa in the past while filling out the DS-160 form? The visa was approved after they had asked for a few additional documents.
No H1b receipt , no SEVP update... time to give up I guess. Anyone hear back from Seyfarth this week?
Has anyone on Temporary visa (H1B, DACA etc.) Applied for Global Entry? Recently got a job that may require lots of travel within the US and global entry which includes TSA pre check would go a long way. I am on DACA. Been in the US since I was 5 years ago. Any pointers would be helpful. Can't seem to find anything useful online as I cannot travel to India being on DACA

If you have a pending I485 and your FAD is current, how do you answer the question on needing future immigration sponsorship? Technically I don’t, but that’s assuming that I’ll either use the AOS EAD or my GC will be approved before needing to renew my visa…..life of an immigrant!
Would you wait for your company to initiate green card and wait for 10-15 years before your GC becomes current? Or, you use your Canadian PR and get pay cut, stay in cold weather, get citizenships
Has anyone gone through the Green Card processing with PwC? The firm requires us to pay back the application fee (which from my understanding could be upto $10,000) if one resigns within two years...

MBB folks on H1-B who recently switched to FAANG - did you run into any issues with visa transfer? My transfer has been filed and I’m a bit nervous about USCIS’ perception of consultants and the current sentiment around H1-B visas.

I’m eligible for 401k %match from my employer on aug 1 2021. The max total amount I could get from them for 2021 is ~$420. I plan on maxing out & my 401k has an aggressive strategy. Would you wait to contribute until later in the year in order to maximize the match, or invest early in the year for the compound interest gains? Am I wrong to think the latter?
If you take vacation, is the onus on you to make up that billable time? If so, how do you enjoy long vacations?
