Anyone done a H1B transfer lately? How long did it take for you? Please indicate if it was premium processing or not. TIA!
About to re-enter the US for a new employer but won't have the physical 797 by then. Emp says I could try and submit a scanned copy and visa approval email. I think this is a horrible idea, thoughts?
I worked in assurance at Deloitte outside the US for 2 years. I then moved to the US and completed my masters in a year. Currently working at EY US but I was hoping to switch to Deloitte US if they will be willing to sponsor me on L1 visa. How likely will Deloitte sponsor and where do I start from? Any referrals? I have 2.5 years of OPT (including STEM) left.
Are folks able to get visa stamping appointments in countries other than home countries? I am an Indian currently residing in the states and looking to get appointments for my renewal in countries other than India as it's been a mess to get an appointment in India. Anyone in the same boat?
Please help. Husband was in Canada (and still is) at the time his H1B was approved, so he received I797B instead of the usual I797A approval. Since I797B comes without I-94 attached at the bottom, his H1B status becomes valid only after he gets his visa stamped from home country and enters the US on H1B. Due to COVID, we don’t intend to make a trip to India anytime soon. Will his employer be able to start the PERM/I-140 process without him having H1B status and while he’s still working in Canada?
With an approved I-140, can H1B extension be filed with Premium processing? If yes, any EY fish know if EY pays for it?
How does UK’s tier 2 to ILR (pr equivalent) compare against H1B to GC for an Indian citizen? Is it equally frustrating, worse or easier? TIA
should i still respond “yes” to “will you now or in the future require sponsorship to work in the US” if i have an approved h1b and just need to transfer? or should i respond “no” and explain in the intro call?
Does Deloitte Canada have an in-house immigration team that would be able to deal with LMIA or would they outsource?
The current practice leadership mentioned I am not a high performer and will not sponsor green card application. Should I start to look for other jobs?
My H1b extension request just got RFE’d! Don’t know what are they looking for yet. Is it fairly common ? This is my 10 year in the country and 2nd extension based on I-140. What are approval rates?
For those of you who has an H1B - how did you obtain yours? Did company agree upfront to sponsor? How do you find companies who would be willing to issue H1B? Any input would be appreciated
If you’re on H1B, can you work outside the country for more than 30 days without any issues. Or do you need to file anything with USCIS given your work location has changed from your what’s on your H1B
Question for the folks here that have recently gone through the visitor visa process for India: what am I missing?? I created the visa application form online and submitted it back in October for my dad and younger brother but is there a timeframe for when we hear back? The site is a cluster and I can’t figure out what I need to do in the meantime or do I just wait to hear back? Is there a step by step somewhere that someone can lead me to? Thank you and I owe you one!
When entering information to schedule a visa appointment is it required to use the old DS-160 number? My passport number changed and I need a new DS-160 but there isn’t an option to get the form
I made a huge mistake by coming to the US, spending a lot of money on education and then paying that off..and finally getting to a point where I am stuck with visa issues. Anyone in the same boat?
I applied for H1B in September but still haven’t received my EAD card. My 60 days are almost up. Is anyone in a similar situation or know how to handle it?
So is the opposite of WFH, WFO?
What is the work culture of BMS like? Would you consider working there if you left consulting?
If you submitted an H1-B application for this year's lottery, does it remain active through all subsequent lotteries this year? Specifically, does the submission of an I-485 under the family-based green card process lead the H1-B application to be withdrawn / not considered for any lotteries after the I-485 receipt date? Thanks!
Anybody here apply for a 2nd PPP draw this past week and gotten it? Which lender did you use? Thoughts on womply or SmartBiz (<<<Kabbage is sending folks there). 5/31 is the last day, but Chase...

Advice for dealing with a subpar manager? I’ve been staffed on a project with a recent-hire manager known to not be great - as far as I know he’s not very on top of things & doesn’t give much guidance (something I need as I’ve recently joined). Does anyone have any advice?
This week's announcements suck for SPG and AA loyal travelers. 2016: SPG is going away and AAdvantage program is changing for the worst.
I am really tired and I think I’m burning out. I love my job, my account, and my team (for the most part). Working from home with 2 kids didn’t really hit me until I had to start picking up slack at work. I had found a good balance. But now I find I’m short with my older kid, house chores have gone undone, or work suffers. I had a review recently and I’m well received but the window for a raise or promotion has passed and they will look into it during the next open window (continued)
Getting ready to blow my theoretical bonus on a new bag. Currently have a mulberry laptop bag (mens). Any suggestions <2k max.
I’m taking the CFP courses through the AC. Someone said I should sign up to become an Enrolled Agent while taking the tax planning course. Any advantage to that? I don’t want to prepare returns.

Any suggestions for baby carrier wrap (soft cloth one) for newborn and that runs for couple of years?
So sick of projects that only care about standing up functionality and not the UX/UI. Next thing you know our “solution” becomes the crappy, difficult-to-use product that another firm is replacing.
Looking to specialize in privacy and was considering getting the CIPP/CIPM/CIPT. I already have my CISSP and CISA. Is it worth it?
🐠 Gang. What’s your best “ask and you shall receive” story? I’ll go first, I asked my company to pay for my M7 mba and they agreed! We have no company edu policy.
