ADVICE NEEDED: Got the leadership invite for lay-off convo with HR. (Wished they did not do it on a Sunday) Status: H1B QNS : -What are some things I should know before going into the convo with leadership? -What should my immediate next steps be as a visa holder and what are some things I should be aware of and should start thinking about ? Any advice is appreciated. Still can’t believe it and trying to process it all... Thanks all.
Thoughts on accepting multiple offers to mitigate H1B transfer denial? I feel terrible doing it for ethical reasons but I am considering it for practical purposes. Would appreciate honest opinions. TIA!

Atlanta 🐟: Anyone investing in multi-family real estate here? Any tips for finding opportunities besides LoopNet or other lessons learned?
For those, who are immigrants, what made you stay in New York? Would be especially interested to hear from those who didn’t come for economical reasons. I am told the excitement about the city wears off 😅 I am European, just came 2 years ago and am still loving it, but also start to wonder if staying in a job I don’t like it’s all worth it (I am on L1 visa, so no way to find a new job). Life in Europe isn’t too bad either.
This one is for folks on h1b visa. So at time when you have an offer in hand(not accepted the offer yet and h1b transfer process not yet begun) while you are working with your current employer, do you even speak to your employer about your new offer to see if they make a counter offer? Is there a risk involved with this approach assuming your current employer doesn't provide you with a counter offer and they ask you to leave immediately (and your h1b visa hasn't been transferred either)

I have a controversial observation: Facebook seems to be using recruitment process managers to get diversity hires. I've looked at all the RPM hires over the past few years and every one of them seems to be a woman, most commonly a woman of color. I'm all for diversity, but this feels out of balance. Am I wrong?

It’s pretty wild how much Big 4 demonizes people who leave. Even worse if you’re looking to jump to a competitor. It’s never that serious
Anyone else at a shop that makes PTO for creatives a total rat race? Only 9 creatives per day.
Big Four consultants, what is your firm’s policy for this year on promotions, raises, bonuses, layoffs? At PwC there’s a freeze on raises, minimal promotions and smaller bonuses. Pay-cut for partners. No layoffs, at least in the near future.
