I’m currently working for employer A. I have signed an offer with employer B who is planning to file for H-1B visa transfer petition soon. I’m still interviewing at other companies. Continued....
Are we still seeing h1b transfer rejects with big4, FANG or other large consulting firms? Considering a switch.
Paid the visa fees back in India and got the reference number. However when I enter the bank reference number in the Receipt number box, it says "no records found". Do the record take time to process?
Hi All! I have a valid & stamped H1 until Mar'22. Planning a vacation to home country (India) in Nov/Dec as I don't have to worry about getting it stamped. My employer would probably file for extension sometime in Nov. I guess I'm still ok to return to the US on my current Visa/797? There's a chance the extension might get approved during my stay there & I might not get that new 797 mailed to me. Can that create an issue in immigration if I just show the current stamp/797? TIA!!!
Has anyone recently moved from EY India to US on L1B visa.. I am having queries regarding the visa process.
Any experience in FHA loan with low down payment on H1B? I do read that it's not considered Public charge
After getting my i140 approved, if I move to a new employer can I get my h1b visa extension for 3 years (after completing the initial 6 years) even if the i140 is not approved for the new employer ?
YOE-10 My LWD in TCS is 20th Nov and I had my H1B stamping initiated before I resigned but due to embassy issues I am not getting visa stamped. Also my ASSOC promotion is due and has already been delayed by 6 months. After resignation I am being told that I will be sent immediately as soon as visa is stamped by embassy which I know is true but project is not ready to promote me in near future. I also have offer from Accenture with 22 LPA. Pls advise what wud hv been ur choice.. onsite or switch?
Have to be out of country for 8 weeks with only 5 weeks of PTO and project getting over right when I am leaving. What is better for H1b - to be on bench or unpaid leave?
Hi everyone. A PDM specialist here. Joined Deloitte 5+ years back as ‘Senior Solution Engineer -On-site’.Later in June 2017 all these ‘on-site’ folks got rebranded as PDM. Slowly started to realize how PDM is getting sidelined as a ‘discountable’ group. Sometimes I feel contract jobs are better than being at PDM , but obviously tied up with D for visa related issues.No career progression so far and don’t see any positive changes in the near future as well.I think it’s high time to call it a day.
Immigration Question for BCG Folks: Is it possible for the firm to file for your Green Card as soon as you join or do you have to always wait for a stipulated time period, before they can do it for u?
Hello Team, I just got my I-140 approved. So ready to get off the current job but I also know that I need to wait for 180 days before I can make the switch. As an Indian citizen, waiting for GC is not an option either. I might get an offer soon, should I be asking the new firm to wait until few months before they start filing H1b? Or is it okay if they start the transfer but I will quit only after 6 months?
My current H-1B with PwC expires in July 2023. I also have an approved I-140 from over a year ago. Green card isn’t close since I’m an Indian citizen. I’m switching jobs and wanted to check if the H-1B transfer with my new company will give me a fresh new 3 years (up until Oct 2024) or up until the end date of my current H-1B (July 2023). Recruiter isn’t sure and is checking with their immigration firm. I haven’t found anything definitely online to validate their answer when I get one. Thanks!
Folks, my wife (on J1 visa with waiver issued) and I (on H1) are planning to travel to Puerto Rico or Hawaii in December. However our visa stamps have expired but I have a valid I-797 and she has a valid DS-2019. Has anyone traveled to PR/ Hawaii in a similar scenario?
Is it safe to travel outside of USA when your H1B is going to expire in 8 months? (Extension will be filed at the 6 month horizon.)
H1B folks from non-7 countries - have any of you traveled outside and got back in? Any problems? I have a travel to UK coming up
Heard some people got H1B lottery results already. Hope we all get selected! Best of luck folks 🤠

Hi! I want to exit out of consulting with almost 4 years under my belt. I’m mainly looking for product manager roles but debating going into SWE (after studying). I’ve applied to so many roles externally but rarely get call backs. How can I increase the number of interviews I’m getting or be seen as a competitive applicant?
Is it a bad look to put in your notice after coming back from a maternity leave? Would it burn bridges or not a big deal?
Curious how other companies have been approaching bringing back their culture during COVID/RTO? Very biased but OW’s done an amazing job of reemphasizing our culture by blasting money at events (in-person!) and trying to do more co-location for teaming. Feels like the pre-pandemic days again
Is it common practice in Singapore for firms to have a probation period for new joiners (duration at their discretion), during which new joiners can be fired at a week’s notice period?
Do any of you lot worry about agism in the industry? I'm about 5yrs in and thinking about this more and more. Noticed thay most my colleagues, in mutliple agencies, were about my age with 5yrs give or take each way. Its obviously not a new industry, so either people were getting out of it by 35 or not many of them were getting hired past then. Been tellling myself ill learn to code one day to future proof but I've done fuck all so far. Anyone else planning for the future or am I being paranoid?
