EY just updated its policy to start green card process on Day 1. Double check with recruiter and get that in writing

It won’t be in the offer I just confirmed with the recruiter

Unless they make the GC start process as soon as you join EY and offering you a substantial salary bump, i would stay in PwC. i won't personally jump unless EY was offering 30% more

like

They are offering me 23% bump but should I get in writing from them that I need GC process to start from Day 1? I’m confused what if they back out 🙁

like

Is the 23% bump worth more to you the GC and staring the whole process again?

like

23% is a pretty nice bump. I would go to EY and try to get my GC process started as soon as possible. In the end, if you are going to be ok staying at EY for 4 years, you should be good.

like

Ey will start your green card day 1 as long as you’re a senior. So consider that

EY does GC processing after employment from this year

So do they start from Day 1?
