My amendment application filed in September got approved today. It was for a location change only and don’t think additional information was requested

I have also heard that getting approvals is becoming more difficult than in the past

Heard similar things. But most of them approved once you provide valid docs at the end.

Which consulting firms are we talking about here?

I work with Deloitte and I heard about a H1 extension getting rejected after a RFE since they couldn’t get a client letter stating the employee is needed longer than their H1B expiry date

Deloitte could not give a letter confirming the extension or availability of another project? Something does not sound right but these are strange times

I keep seeing those LinkedIn polls about how many people want to work from home permanently, and it makes me kinda sad. I know a lot of people really prefer working from home, but as a junior who only started working after the pandemic began, it feels so strange to not have an agency to go to. I know all my coworkers faces only from seeing them on Zoom, and only in the context of work-related conversations. I hope I’ll actually get the chance to experience normal agency culture.
