Hello H1B fish. Hoping for guidance; I’m Indian and current H1B is up for renewal in August. With the travel ban I don’t want to risk traveling to a consulate in India. Does anyone have experience with: 1. Getting extension via USCIS (success rates, timelines, etc) 2. Getting visa renewed and stamped as 3rd party citizen in a consulate in say Mexico (success rates, timelines) My lawyers strongly recommend a consular appointment but unsure now. Appreciate any insight

Anyone have a chase sapphire reserve and have to file the delayed baggage claim? My flight lost 3/4 of my suitcases today and I’m confused with the claims website. It’s asking for the value of the items purchased as if the luggage is lost, but at this point it should still be considered delayed.
26M making $155k base and about $185k TC at a large payments firm (Visa, MC, AmEx). I’m also 1 year away from promo which will probably get me to $210-220k TC. Do you think I still need an MBA? A lot of senior leaders in my team have 1 so I’m really not sure at this point. The opportunity costs are high, but I’m well aware of the long term benefits. I’ve also already taken the GMAT and gotten a 740. I’m an Asian male and find the hurdles that we go through for admissions a turn off as well.

Hello. I’m working on H1B and recently got a promotion. My company is amending my H1B and told me that since my new job is remote I can only work at my apartment (since it’s my legal location). Is there any chance they can figure out I’m working remotely from somewhere else? Also, I’m also in the process of applying for green card (thru employment). Does anyone know the timeline for this given my H1B is getting amended ? (My country has no waiting time).

How to let a firm know comp expectations changed due to a raise at the current employer? Gave a firm a range and they offered me a base comp at the low end of my range. Not sure how I feel about this. Thoughts on this? Would expect them to meet me at least in the middle. Current comp is going to be very close to 90k at the end of the year. Initially gave a range of 95 - 110 (when my comp was still in the low 80s). They met me at 95. I have almost 2 YOE. Thanks!

For those of you that left big 4 accounting to do MBA, did you leave at Senior level (3-4 YOE) or at the Manager level (5 YOE).
