Is any accounting firm sponsoring for an H1B visa in tax or audit? I joined KPMG 5 years ago and heard that they quit doing so after that.
I have Amex points on corp card and need to buy a long haul flight. It looks like it’s best to use them by booking travel through Amex but I’m confused about the bit that says I’ll get a statement credit when I pay with points. Does that mean I’ll then have to spend more on the card to get rid of the credit?
Aren’t we supposed to get an update on h1b lottery results by today ? Immigration page says week of 11/29
@H1B consultants - how painful is H1B amendment process these days for starting a new engagement? Have you noticed any repercussions for amendment denials or RFE?
Benefits of amex card?
Are there any repercussions if you accept an offer and they completed the H1B transfer, and then you decline?
Is the H1B approval rate down this year? Have any big companies stopped petitioning? Did Trump’s executive order make the process more expensive for employers ?
Do we loose all the Marriott bonvoy points if I close my chase Marriott credit card ? Don’t see the need to pay $95 when there is no travel for the foreseeable future.
Anyone left consulting for industry on H1B?
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.
Best airline to transfer chase points to??
How will the new H1B bill affect consulting? Will everyone making less than 100,000 on H1B be fired if the bill passes?
I know its a small win, but I finally got status on something besides my Amex! Anyone got platinum or Diamond yet?
Hello, How long is it taking nowadays to receive physical approval notice of H1B? This is from Nebraska center.
Which firms sponsor green card immediately upon joining (Post-MBA) ? If there's a waiting period, how long is it on average? TIA!
Oh the wait for H1B transfer is killing me
Friends - Is any company hiring? Considering H1B transfer? I have total only 28 months left on my visa? Doesn’t look like the firm is going to sponsor green card. I have been performing well in my department no negative reviews in 4 years yet HR denied to file GC. Apparently they are only considering Managers for GC. Is this the same situation in Big 4 Audit? Please comment.
Anyone got approval after requesting extension of tourist B1/2 visa? My parents couldnt find flights back to home country and submitted the requests. But we got no update after several months. Any info is much appreciated! Thanks!

Per requirements of the Event Operator, to enter this event all attendees must show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination OR proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 48 hours.
Down because I got some upsetting (work-related) news yesterday. I was up for promotion and did not get it, basically for my actual job that I have been acting in for over a year. I had perfect reviews and perfect on the technical portion of the interview. Apparently they dinged me on something subjective relating to situational competencies. Colleagues—who I trained and mentored—did receive promotion and we will all be working at the same job, just them at higher level and pay. Contd.
First year as a Manager here (TAG) and my ye bonus is over $100k. Blown away. I keep hearing insane numbers about people who’ve been here even longer. Curious how others did?!
The trusts and estates bowl is not very active, so thought I’d post here. We are in the middle of updating our will/trust. We don’t have any close family that could take care of our kids if we died. Our closest friend lives in Brazil. We would love to have her take care of the kids - but don’t know if there is any way around immigration laws to have that happen if she were willing to move to US. My Google searches haven’t turned up an answer.
Has anyone else seen their credit card bill go from a reasonable amount to the danger zone overnight? This always happens to me and I’m determined to actually save money this month. Help!
Do we have a chargeable code that we can bill our time to while we are waiting on a code to open? Its getting close to FYE utilization cut off so want to make sure I get credit for the hours pending.

Firm holiday party is cocktail attire but I have a dress I’ve been dying to wear since before COVID. It’s this one but in black. Thoughts?
So, just what did Nick Emery do to get fired? ‘Prank gone wrong on zoom’ is all I’m hearing
Hey all, I applied to a financial diligence and integration analyst role at Deloitte back in October and my application is currently under review. This is a role I’ve been trying to get into for awhile and was wondering if anyone at Deloitte can help me get in touch with a recruiter / provide any insights or advices. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Hoping to get some perspective here. What would you all expect TC to be for a general manager position (full P&L ownership) of a $40M business line. Industry is e-commerce CPG for reference. Thanks!
Hi IQVIA fishes! Curious if anyone is working in their custom market research shop (previously alphaimpactrx). I’m seeing a few job postings and considering applying. I’d love to hear thoughts on culture etc.
Turned 30 today. Gotta say I feel fine. Slightly fatter than I’d like to be but I am ok financially, married, and have a baby on the way. Getting 5 months of paid paternity leave (Thanks Accenture!) so hopefully will be able to ride out the tail-end of ‘rona.
