L1B to L1A then EBC1 - possible? I’m currently on a L1B at Accenture, based in US which will expire soon and getting extended. Accenture hasn’t been super helpful with my immigration inquires. I’m up for manager and debating if I should do the L1B to L1A transfer or just wait it out until my L1B expires. Do I not qualify for EBC1 since I got my L1A in the country and not prior to transferring with that 1 year managerial experience abroad?
Not that I or someone I know is in a situation, but I was just thinking if you guys have a contingency plan in case things go south at work. Mainly with respect to sustaining immigration nightmares. Specially at experienced M/ SM level people get canned without prior notice. And now that Deloitte has asked staff to find work for 45 hours every week it's going to get more and more challenging on mid senior level as well.How are you guys preparing for the rainy day?
My h1b got approved this year in Consular processing and with all the uncertainty I am planning to change it to a COS instead. Anyone applied for a change to Change of Status from Consular processing. How much time does the process of changing to COS usually take? Potential RFE etc?
If you could work remotely full time and live anywhere in the US where would you choose to live? (Assuming all visa hassles addresses around proximity to office etc)
I heard that the US immigration has started doing i-130 for eb1c under premium processing. Does anyone know if this is true?
Any tips in internal transfers? I’d like to be relocated to a few other offices in other countries (US or Canada), and from what I know getting a visa can be the difficult part. (Cont’d)
DT folks - if your visa transfer/application does not go through, does the firm have a policy or path in place to keep you around? Going abroad or something?
I filed prevailing wages in June this year under H1b. When would I expect to receive response from DOL?
From what I read, EB GC is comprised of following steps roughly: PWD > PERM > I140 > backlog wait time if applicable > I485? How far in this process can I go without endangering my non-immigrant visa status? Can I complete PERM and still renew my TN before filing I140?
I got an offer from Deloitte and they have started my H1B transfer. In the meantime I got an interview call from Google (Which I would prefer over Deloitte). Can I continue interviewing while H1B transfer is in progress? If I get the second offer (Which is a big IF) can I so no to Deloitte at that point after the H1B is approved?
Planning to quit. How do I get all the immigration documentation from Deloitte lawyers. I guess I can download from the website bug how do I get out of my Deloitte laptop?
Trying to get my employment verification letter from my previous employer ( accenture India ) ? Unfortunately my manager moved to different firm. What will accenture do in this case ? Need the document for green card processing . Thanks !
Anyone here who started their consulting careers later in life? Always seeing posts about how young people make it to P... wondering about the other stories. I started as a C at 29 (yes, unfortunately, I fall into the bucket of exp hire hired at a lower level...), made M at 33. Doing well but also feeling like I’m already too old to aim to be a P. Hoping for some perspectives.
Bye bye green card and adjustment of status??
If you’re currently working in the US on H1B visa and apply for change of status(COS) to H4 visa. Can you continue to work on your current H1B for the same employer while COS is pending? (Contd.)
What will you do to celebrate your green card?
Not so H1B - Is there a CPA service that i can use to file my tax return by contacting them through email? I already returned to my home country but my tax return is so confusing. Thanks!
Our nanny takes my 7 month old out for one, sometimes 2, long walks every day (weather permitting). Love the idea of fresh air every day but its often for several hours at a time and he always returns home crying bc she's pushed him to his limit between feedings. She brushes it off saying hes just fussy which kind of irks me. Im also concerned that he's spending too much time strapped in a stroller. Is it reasonable to ask her to take shorter walks? Am I overreacting?

Noob question here but realized I sent out an email with a brief typo to a client meeting chain. I said “Out” instead of our”. Is this like a big deal? Normally, I wouldn’t ask this but my brief experience in consulting makes me feel like every thing I do will be under a microscope and my manager will talk to me about this

Hey geniuses, financial modelling question: how do you account for the risk of fines in an excel business case model? For example if your project would eliminate a 10% risk each year of being fined $1m. Do I model it as a $1m P&L benefit a year? $100k? Something else? Thanks!

Hey all - a recent grad (class of 21) really interested in an associate position at S& Deal Strategy. Found out there was an open position super late, so went ahead and reached out to alum. Have a chat for next monday, but I found out that the PwC national deadline was on Tuesday. Asked alum if it was a hard deadline and he said to apply whenever. Ended up applying on Tuesday in fear that the apps would close, but might have shot myself in the foot. Any advice on how to proceed? Strategy&
