Thinking about getting the Chase Sapphire Reserve, any cons I should know about? Is there another card you’d recommend?
One of my friend is offered a salary of 73K GBP as the base salary and benefits allowance of 4.7K with a joining bonus of 6.25K with a VISA sponsorship for Manager grade in PWC London office. Does this salary sound right or can he still negotiate further? He has a total experience of 6.5 years in ERP consulting.
Do any NY investment banks sponsor H1B visas for lateral hires, or is that just crazy.
(I'm not well-versed on the H1B but that's the only visa I can use by elimination, so forgive me if this is a silly question)
What firms sponsor H1B
Landed an offer as a consultant (not VCA) and am overall pretty happy with the package. Just seeking some validation before i put pen to paper.
8 YOE (3 in consulting)
10% Target bonus
Performance based RSU eligible

For non tech/product/SWE, i don't anticipate Visa going any higher. Have already negotiated once. Thoughts?
PSA: If you worked for Integra Solutions or one of the other fraudulent OPT training companies, you should consult an immigration attorney immediately and whatever you do DO NOT travel. I’ve had 3 employees who had their visas revoked and deported when attempting to enter the country in the past month.

My H1B stamp has expired and I need a new one. Do I have to physically be at a consulate in my home country ( India ) or can I mail my passport it to the embassy ?
URGENT! I recently participated in a research study and received 250$ cheque for the same. I went ahead and deposited it. I am on the H1b visa and assumed research study deposit should not be an issue. Now I am confused if that was okay. Please let me know your thoughts and if this is something I should not have accepted is there a way to revoke the money back to the institution? Thank you.

I’ve been taking an art class on zoom and tbh, I don’t like the instructor much. I’ll explain why below. But in our class yesterday, she said she had to mute herself for a second because her (insert race) neighbors were arguing. “But they’re really nice,” according to her. It really bothered me. Should I let it go or speak up?

Hi All, could anyone share the salary range for an experienced senior strategy consultant at Slalom Consulting in their Toronto office?
Finally leaving consulting and I cannot overstate the importance of networking.
I knew I was leaving at year 3 of EY so starting in year 2 I started having random virtual chats with people within and beyond my network to learn about opportunities at their firm. When year 3 came around I started following back up with people who I made connections with and secured 3 offers in under a month. In all cases someone senior was vouching for me, guaranteeing me interviews.

What's crazy is that 1200 of the firm's 7000 employees 17% of the employees got caught up in this..not just a couple of dozen.
Something similar I experienced during grad school. Folks in the JD/MBA program shared answers for MBA assignments and passed it down from one year to another. Funnier is the story of how they were caught. One professor changed a tiny detail in one of the assignments and since the JD/MBAs in that course just copy pasted answers, their scheme came undone
