Honestly, I don't know how anyone is staying in Big 4, even partners. I sense a lot of frustration from field partners at KPMG with the unprecedented turnover we are seeing and constant new initiatives. Wonder how many of them would quit if they didn't have huge loans and weren't tied up for years with the firm to get that huge pension?

I am almost 2 years into my H1B. They haven’t started my I140 but when I joined told me that I would be eligible in a year of which I am coming up on in this Oct. I got a new offer today but they told me that they would apply I140 after a year from when I join. The pros of the new one is TC more than 18k with sign-on of 15k (not sure clauses for this) and better wrk-life bal). My question is, how long into H1B is it advisable to have an I140 applied for. Would 3-4 years into my H1B be too late?
