I was “getting paid” as they say, but the work was brutal and I hated going to work every day. It all depends on what you want in life. I think it’s easier to find a good paying gig than it is to find work and a team you actually enjoy.

Take this for whatever it’s worth… might not be much… I did chase money and found some, but like an idiot I just increased my expenses. If you take a new gig for more dough, try not to change too much. Enjoy some of it of course, but don’t be me. Secondarily, our industry doesn’t reward loyalty. It rewards moving around. The big salary jumps come from Agency moves not yearly raises. As somebody that gave out raises and bonuses at several shops, I can tell ya there are strict metrics in place. Best of luck!

I did to go client side and hated every minute of it. Back in agencies now! The grass isn’t always greener…

SD1 so good to be back! And got some good perspective from the experience that has made me a better account person. things that used to bug me about clients don’t as much any more! Ie - I saw first hand why it can take them ages to respond to us: the agency stuff is only like, 5% of their whole job!

My wife has approved H4 extension notice (i-797) and we just filed her first ever H4 EAD last week. She need to travel to India for medical reasons and she will need to have H4 visa stamped in order to immigrate to the US.
Our concern is, will it affect her i-765 application as she will receive a new i-94 and H4 Visa which will differ from already filed i-765?
In that case, does she have to wait out in India till her H4-EAD is processed in order to avoid i-94 mismatch?
Appreciate your help!
