Background - Got my H1B approved (Consular) this Aug. Am already on OPT with 2 year STEM extension. I recently cleared the cut off for Canada PR. Does it make sense to go ahead and secure the PR? (How trustworthy is US going to be for already approved H1B?) Long term goal - back to home country in 5 years (hopefully)
My H1B case (Amendment + Extension) was received by USCIS on Sep 2. Still awaiting an update on my non-premium case. Any visibility on the max timeline (it’s been 7 months) would help.
Is EY still sponsoring H1b?
Does EY US sends their H1B employees to EY India in case of rejection of H1B visa? I am asking this in case of change of employer to EY US in the US only.
How much time before the H1B expiry date (first three years) we need to initiate the process for the next extension?
If my green card process has already started and if I plan to leave Deloitte in between , is there any charge that I have to pay while leaving ?
Does the H1b location amendment salary (with the new location state tax etc) take effect after I receive the application acknowledgement from USCIS or after USCIS actually approves the H1B amendment?
How long is it taking for h1 transfer to complete. Did anyone file a H1B transfer in January and received the approval ? If so, how many days?
How long can u stay in the country after resigning while on h1b? Hoping a trip round the country after being done with the job
Anyone here know the Microsoft H1B transfer timelines.. submitted all my docs and questionnaire on 01/10 and they said they are preparing for filing on 01/14. I also sent them my last 3 pay slips on 01/14.... any idea how long it takes to file the petition?
Just started to work in the US on h1b.should I invest in 401k? What if I am not sure about staying in the US for the long term..Is there a penalty for early withdrawal - does it make financial sense?
Can someone that did their h1b extension recently take me through the timelines by step? This will be my first extension petition. Anything to be wary of with recent changes to stamping norms, etc. please help!!
What is most stupid/foolish thing you’ve ever done for love? For me it was starting the green card application for my long distance boyfriend. 😩🥴🤧
Deloitte fish, for those who got selected in the h1b (seyfarth), how does the process to file the petition look like? They asked for my docs 2 weeks ago and never heard from them since. They dont reply to email or update the portal either. What should I expect now?
Got an offer from EY US on 10 Dec and process of H1B transfer started at mid Dec. The LCA is certified from DOL and all the steps including review of petition and approvals are done by law clerk and attorney. The date of petition filing on INSzoom is 12 Jan. It is been more than 10 days now, and upon asking the law clerk he has received everything from business and will file my petition. However, he has still not filed my petition and keep on giving diff excuses. What could be the reason here?
H1B and MBA: I’m on H1B, planning to pause it for MBA on F1, and switch back to H1B after grad. I’ll have 3 years left after grad. Anyone has experience doing this/know anyone that has done this? Thanks!
What’s the L1a visa to green card conversion process like. I just competed my EB1 support letter and expecting my firm to submit my documents by Jan end.
Anyone have experience buying a house on h1b. How much down payment did you need to put, and how much interest are you paying. Especially someone who did it very recently.
Hey all, I know MBB sponsor international candidates but at what stage they look at your visa situation. Do they take into consideration initially before sending you any online assessment test and while reviewing your CV or they look for it after you go through interviews. I had a chat with previous McKinsey consultant and he was like you automatically get cut off from the system if you select 'require visa sponsorship'. Not sure if it is true or not?
Hi! I am looking to pivot to consulting from an accounting and venture capital background. I’m looking to learn more about MBB and other top consulting firms in Canada/ US ( if an H1B sponsorship is possible) and how to pivot into consulting. Is anyone available to chat?
Please help me decide: Option 1 - stay at current big 4, get promoted this year, current comp $91k. ( project 20% increase with promotion would be like $110k) Option 2 - jump to a fairly large credit union now, lateral move no title bump, comp becomes $110k
Badger & Winters: would love an honest POV from someone who works / has worked there ... how is the culture? How is the work? Are they retaining & getting new business? Would you recommend it?
Anyone have info on MBB/Strategy& supply chain consulting? Group size, actively hiring, common backgrounds (MBA/certifications required/helpful?), project types, & interview prep tips? Looking to enter as an experienced hire. Currently a procurement financial analyst and just passed my CSCP certification. Ex-big4. Thanks!
I worked one really hard busy season as an intern and another disaster busy season as a first year. Not to mention, I’ve been staying 9-10pm for Q1. I have zero interest in this job or CPA. Help!
Do mbb partners also get lifelong pension ?
I’m moving to San Francisco soon. What are some apartment finding tips you can share? Thank you in advance
EY-P director salary range? Any ballpark ideas?
Just sent i485 for GC last week, any idea how long are the processing times with covid? I've been exahusted for some time now, and days are getting longer and harder but this has given me so hope.
Anyone familiar with Inshur or its health as a company? Series B startup that my husband is looking into .. maybe a fish in here has happened to do research on it or competitive intelligence! TIA
So is the opposite of WFH, WFO?
Folks who moved from MBB to a top-tier tech firm (E.g. FAANG): how does the talent compare between the two?
We just hired some folks from a more bureaucratic firm and there's a bit of a culture clash between them and our more flexible startup team. What can be done to merge our cultures?
How much does Partner compensation vary across firms and how distinctive is the PwC pension? I’ve heard a big range for comp, from $400k - $1.2M. All I’ve heard about the pension is it takes 10 years as a PwC Partner. New SM trying to think many years ahead!
Has anyone here (MBB or similar hours) ever attempted to do a masters part-time? I feel like it’s out of reach for me unless I stop working or switch jobs, but would love to hear other perspectives.
@Deloitte people, hows the comp for experienced tech analysts? Also how do you enjoy it?
Hi All! I hope you guys are staying safe and healthy. I am hosting a free workshop for teachers that I thought might benefit you. The workshop is called From Unsettled to Prepared Classroom.

Recommendations for a beginners surf camp anywhere in the world? Bonus points if it also has other activities (yoga, horseback riding, sailing etc) and I don’t have to speak Spanish. Thank you!
