I don’t think so

i believe you have 14 days or so to get a new job?

Yes 60

Don’t think so but I know someone on OPT who got laid off (not from Deloitte) and then filed and received unemployment benefits. Who knows if there will be repercussions.

what are the difficulties in changing job of green card application in process? I-140 is in process?

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?

Anyone leave before their bonus (before knowing what the amount was) and then regret it when it turned out to be a huge bonus? Got a great offer that I want to take but feeling FOMO by leaving the bonus on the table. And yes, I tried moving the start date and asking them to cover the lost bonus but they said no and it’s still a better offer and it would be irresponsible not to take it.

Additionally, the company is projected to IPO at the end of 2022. I’m 29 with a slight appetite for risk and plan to stay at this company for 2-3 years.
