What do you mean by success stories?

Anyone who has gone through the process successfully? And any hurdles you faced? Any tips you’d have to smoothly navigate the process

I went through the process successfully. The lawyers handle the tough parts. The only real advice I can give is don't stress about the embassy interview. I spent a couple of hours preparing for it, expecting to get grilled. But it was just a formality, the guy just asked me to briefly explain what I do for a living and that was that.

Well it depends on where you are in the process. If you already have a company who will sponsor you I agree, have a good lawyer who has done many applications before. Have all of your supporting documentation ready to go. Get used to waiting. Good luck!!

For those on Conditional Green Card: My lawyers have filed for the removal of conditions (I-751) about 3 weeks ago but I haven’t received the application receipt yet which automatically extends my green card’s validity for 18 months. My current green card expires in 2 weeks. If I don’t receive the receipt by then, do I need to be worried or as long as the I-751 was filed before my card expires I’m okay?

Had a Dev on my team drop the ball significantly on a client deliverable, but keeps insisting he understands and wastes hours trying to figure out stuff on his own bc he refuses to allow me to explain it to him. If I had the time, I'd just take over and do it myself at this point, but I don't.

Keep hustlin’ y’all! It’s been 1 mo since I left consulting (exited to a high growth tech company, pre IPO) and I can honestly say every part of my professional life is better. Hours are reasonable, work is interesting, I can make plans for nights / weekends, and people are genuinely excited to work here. Plus TC is much better (200k —> 350k)! I interviewed a ton of places and turned down offers that weren’t right. I just wanted to post to say thanks, and if you’re still looking, don’t give up!

I get the pressure is on, but step down before to let someone else take your place

I joined Deloitte in 19’ and don’t buy into the circlejerk that seems to go on both for / against the company - I like being a part of the firm but am underwhelmed with where the recent compensation cycle resulted. I have an opportunity with a small business to get a roughly $45k salary increase, but would have 2 sacrifice the security of Deloitte, wfh and paternity leave, which will come into play this fall as we have a baby due in November. Anyone make a similar switch before or havethoughts?
