Any denials on h1b extensions these days ?
This is a long shot but wondering if anyone has experienced this. I just changed to H1B status last Oct and my bank mailed me recently after tax filing deadline (I have filed tax in time using H&R block) asking me to fill out W9 if I am a resident alien / another form if I am not. This has never happened in previous years. Does it mean I missed a form using H&R block or is it related to the status change…?
How come some of the H1B applications are processed quickly (in a day or two) whereas others are still in queue for 12 days on premium processing? Don’t they follow sequence number?
Do customer success roles get h1B sponsorship? Is that a rome aligned to strategy? Or operations?
H1b extension - where does USCIS send the receipt? Does it go to your lawyers address? Or do you get it directly?
Trying to get my employment verification letter from my previous employer ( accenture India ) ? Unfortunately my manager moved to different firm. What will accenture do in this case ? Need the document for green card processing . Thanks !
Anyone know of a reliable immigration attorney I can connect to? Looking for help to file for asylum. Thanks!!
My B1/B2 visa to the US expires at the end of Feb 2022. If I enter to visit the US in mid Jan 2022 will I get a I94 valid for 6 months or it’s typically upto the visa end date only ? And is there any draw back in staying longer than the visa expiry date but assuming it is within the I94 end date
Has anyone taken an unpaid leave on H1b without leaving the country? I am just really burnt out with work, kids and taking care of my wife who is recovering from a severe case of covid. Would love to not work for a month. She is on H4.
I was on opt from July 2020 to July 2021. I got my h1b approved in 2020 and chose to activate it via the consular processing method. I left the US in Jul 2021 and will finally visit the embassy for stamping tomorrow. If successful, does it mean that I could get another company to apply for a h1b transfer right away? Or do I have to enter the US before the h1b transfer process can start? Thanks!
Is Accenture sponsoring H1B at M& SM levels? If so, how responsive is their legal team for H1B / GC related filings?
Any news about H1B extensions? Been hearing some rejections for consulting employees like us due to client sow end dates. Is it true?
What will you do to celebrate your green card?
Anybody worried about the upcoming recession and making plans? What option does one really have being on a VISA?

L1B to L1A then EBC1 - possible? I’m currently on a L1B at Accenture, based in US which will expire soon and getting extended. Accenture hasn’t been super helpful with my immigration inquires. I’m up for manager and debating if I should do the L1B to L1A transfer or just wait it out until my L1B expires. Do I not qualify for EBC1 since I got my L1A in the country and not prior to transferring with that 1 year managerial experience abroad?
My h1b got approved this year in Consular processing and with all the uncertainty I am planning to change it to a COS instead. Anyone applied for a change to Change of Status from Consular processing. How much time does the process of changing to COS usually take? Potential RFE etc?
Travel question- Can one travel to India on a e-visa? Recently became a US citizen and need to travel to India. Is it mandatory to complete the renunciation and application of OCI prior to traveling?
Anybody else sick and tired of other team members forgetting procedures and disrupting workflow? 😤
Random Question - I live with a roommate for the last 2 years now. We have become really good friends and she is like a sister to me. We used to hangout and do a lot of fun stuff before COVID. When I make a plan to do something during COVID, I always include her to do or go somewhere. Of late, when she makes plans, she goes on her own or if she goes with her friends (whom I know), she would not invite me. I feel left out and sad because of it. I think I should not feel that way as she can
ACN gets compensation info tomorrow for salary increases. I expect to hear a lot of joy and sorrow on FB. Good luck everyone!
People interviewing: someone please go to Reference Point consulting. They seem desperate! 😂😂😂😂😂
What can you actually do to salvage a project going down in flames? I’m a new manager, completely do not have the support I need, and it seems as though every single team/person our team relies on to get things done on time has dropped the ball. All the issues are now coming to us. I don’t have the experience to navigate this all alone, and I am not getting the necessary support as all of my managers are swamped with other (to them, more important) issues at the same client.
Had covid, got J&J, just tested positive for Covid again. Same symptoms, did anyone experience a shorter turn around time
TFW the client takes away your tools written in the contract, but your leadership is dragging their feet on the change order. *wears this to team dinner*
Anybody been offered a promotion with no corresponding pay rise? I assumed that was impossible but am worried that may be what's on offer. Surely not??!
Anyone know if the new Amex Plat 5x MR points for air includes our corporate cards? I've found the benefits all don't always carry over. http://about.americanexpress.com/news/pr/2016/new-travel-benefits-for-amex-platinum.aspx
Anyone else rethinking their career options? Simu worked at Deloitte until he was laid off. 🤔
FAANG folks - what are Facebook/Google roles like Country Lead/Industry Lead equivalent to? Are these Director level roles? What sort of compensation can you expect in something like that role?
Anyone looking to switch careers to a Marketing role with a leading Medical devices company? Looking for someone with 1-3 years experience in strategy and operations consulting. Please DM me
Just withdrew right before my interviews with Amazon and Microsoft this week. Still remember the good old days when I used to worship em and ask everyone for a referral but now just happy with non-FAANG industry exit, significant bump and amazing WLF.
Anyone at Deloitte have some insight on the Strategic Communications and Change Management positions for analyst and consultant? What to expect in the final interview? Base salary + bonus? WLB? Asking for a relative! Deloitte
Hi ladies! Advice on moving home for the fall/save some $$ vs. staying in the city (Boston)? I have a healthy-ish relationship with my family, turning 24 and recently single - not sure if now is a great time to date but am I wasting time by not? My logic says I should rent out my apt (homeowner), but part of me wants to stay in the city. Originally, I was moving to London this summer w/work (postponed due to COVID) but I’m still trying to move in Jan if I can find the l right opp this fall. Ty!
If firms go exclusively remote, I have zero reason to remain living near “home office”. Likelihood we’ll shift to that model, and can live wherever?
Going to talk to a CPA but curious how many of you take the home office deduction? I do most of my work at home but meet clients at an office in a high rise. The IRS info isn’t clear if I qualify
