I was told it’s about $2.5k because I still have a couple years on my H1-B

Yes, I-140 can be paid out of personal pocket.

Think he’s charging you for PP Fee + Lawyers filing fee

Yes, they can

Mine didn't charge anything. Paid pp out of pocket though

BCG doesn’t charge either

The lawyers have to charge something for a PP upgrade. Most firms charge $500 though

I’d like to apologize in advance as this maybe a touchy topic for certain folks. For those that have been in the Big 4 for sometime now (i.e. was hired before this covid induced hiring spree over the past couple months), are you concerned that your market value would decrease as a result of the firms hiring people left and right? In other words, the recruiting has been excessively relaxed now compared to when there was intense competition.
