I have seen multiple posts of people complaining about the US immigration policies. Attitudes and laws around U.S. immigration have vacillated between welcoming and restrictive since the beginning.
Anyone know about the hierarchy at Visa?
After 3 rounds of interviews (total 4 inc recruiter screen) over the past 5 odd weeks, just got told by a T2 consulting firm that they doesn’t sponsor H1B visas which is frustrating because they were aware of my visa situation right at the start. Sigh 😢. Understand it happens but frustrating nonetheless given the time and effort invested.
Can someone please share how easy or difficult it is to get a job with EAD on an H4 visa? Also how difficult is getting the EAD itself? Apologies if it's a naive question. I'm not too familiar with the US visa scene. Asking genuinely for a friend 😀
Just got my H1B extension approved. If I decide to switch firm, can I go abroad (where h1b stamping is open) to get my visa stamped between the time I quit my current firm and join a new employer? Or do I need to be employed at the time of visa stamping? Are there any risks in doing this?
Forget Glassdoor. The government publicly reports the salaries of H1B visa employees. http://h1bdata.info/index.php?em=&job=&city=&year=All
Trying let the power of compounding take over. Would you chase 128 shares of an ETF then do the same for a tech stock or chase both at the same time, knowing your ultimate is a minimum 128 shares of each?
Anyone ever stayed at the Rosewood Mayakoba in Playa del Carmen? What’s the best way to cash in points from CSR, AmEx, or AA for something off brand like this?

On H1b. Planning to quit in September and then attend a friends wedding and leave the states within 60 days. Can’t take this job anymore and not really sure if it’s even worth it. Any tips or thoughts?
Worth it to pay the 550/year for the Amex corporate platinum once travel resumes? Looks like all the point multipliers are stripped compared to the normal platinum so my initial thought is it’s not worth it
Planning to visit India later this year, and also need to get my visa stamped (current stamp expired in 2016). I have an I-797 number from the approved extension, and another one from an amendment...
Live in the bay area and have a net worth of ~600K. This does include our house and 401K's. Both my partner and I are in our early 30's and I am unsure if we are making enough that it makes sense to live here. Our combined HHI is only ~260k. We both do not have any RSUs. Anyone in a similar situation and addressing the issue of potentially moving to somewhere more affordable like Texas? Feel like I am not keeping up with the pace of career progression and net worth in the bay area.
In the final round of interview with a San Fran startup that’s about to go IPO... but I know I’d be also giving up lots of the structures & project flexibility & diversity offered here at big 4. What rationale would you use to make a decision?

Which consulting firms do you think offer the most opportunity/respect/salary, for someone that doesn’t really like selling super hard, preferring to be brought along as expert when others push, or actually deliver things that others sell. Seems at OW there isn’t much opportunity to go beyond EM if this is the case, and as a bit of an introvert am wondering if other firms have an alternate path available.
How long does it take for you to get comfortable in a new role? I just switched agencies and I’m wondering how long will the adjustment period be.

I’m so beyond nervous for this as I will miss my entire client base’s yearend work. I feel guilty but don’t and I would love to have my clients back when I return from leave, but I’m not sure if that will happen either. Any advice?
