Which firms offer Day 1 Green Card Process? I know there is FAANG, Microsoft, Twitter... any others? Thanks!
Would you say it’s become common to get a 221 (g) administrative processing during h1 b visa stamping interviews these days? Or, is this something that happens only occasionally?
Accidentally paid a personal expense using my corporate AMEX (thanks Apple Pay and my fat fingers). Do I need to do anything besides just pay it off?
Peeps I have H1b till Sep 2021 but my passport expired in Sep 2020 and along with it my I94. I had already renewed my passport back in Feb but haven’t left the country since. I read online that my presence in the USA is unlawful and staying here unlawfully for more than 180 would bar me from entering US for 3 years. What are my options ?
My H1B visa transfer with EY has been approved. We have received the e-approval. Can I now resign or give notice at my current firm? The guidance apparently is to wait for physical copy of the approval before officially resigning. But that date is uncertain and I’m afraid I could get the physical copy a day before my start date or a week after that. I’d like to give my firm around two weeks notice and I am scheduled to start on 27th Sept. Thoughts? As usual, radio silence from my EY recruiter.
Got selected for H1B but already accepted offer at another company for 2x pay. Is staying at the company and getting the visa worth it? What are the risks for immediate transfer if the other company is willing to wait? Current visa expires in 2 years.
EY 🐠, want some help understanding how’s the immigration support there? Is there a12 month waiting period before the GC process starts? TIA.
After receiving Green Card (employer sponsored), is there a minimum period that one needs to work with the sponsoring employer before switching? Asking from a legal/USICS’s point of view, not ethically.
Meeting with a recruiter at one of the FAANG companies. I won’t be able to move jobs because of H1b /GC at least for the next year. Any idea if I should start off with that or should I just try to understand the work that they have been doing?
Hi Fishes I’m getting an international transfer from EY Abroad to EY US. Has anyone submitted documents on INSZoom for L1 visa? How long did Visa team take? I feel the visa process is way too long. Please share any first hand experiences. I signed my offer letter in August, submitted my docs last week on INSZoom. Anyone in the same boat?
I have a H1B visa that has been renewed once already. However in the designated period of 6 years I have been in the US for only around 2. Does that mean I can renew my H1B visa or reapply fresh?...
What’s Deloitte’s green card policy?
Talked to SO about wanting more effort from him, he said he believes in giving what he is receiving & doesn’t chase. However I like to be pursued and feel wanted. Is this a situation of just wanting different things? Or should I start putting in more effort to pursue him and see if it’s reciprocated?
Has anyone filed for H1B amendment and extension application together? Should I file together or file amendment separately from extension? Which is the better option ?
The latest “Look the other way” news cycle distraction going into the weekend (it’s always going into a weekend) was the immigration disaster in Texas involving people under a bridge. To be education based and let us learn something in context: how has immigration (legal or illegal) affected your current school during your lifetime?
I believe "Qualified Immunity" regulations be extended to Teachers and Coaches, like the cops have. We both police less and demand less from the public as it erodes. Should this be fought for by our unions/legislatures?
Wanted to wait until after promotion notification to bring up a transfer. How long to wait now so it doesn’t seem too obvious that was my reasoning? I have about five months before I need the transfer

Any ex-EY folks here who did withdraw the pension money? If yes what age were you and how much did they offer?
Our team uses the f word so many times in conversations it has almost become like a competition to see how many times you can work it into your sentence. Worried I’m developing a bad habit if I were to be moved to a different team. I’m forgetting other adjectives
McKinsey and BCG 🐠 I got the offers for AS and C roles in the US. Wonder if they will sponsor MBA at all for experience hires?
We want what we can’t have. Right now we can’t travel for work. When we can have that again (don’t ask me when, because no one really knows), we’ll miss being able to work from home.
I’d love some help thinking through this. I’m currently renting for $1600 base ($1800 total) and live in the least desirable part of town, and expect it to raise to about $2k/month. I was planning to buy my first property in the city and Airbnb part of it, but it will take me about a year to save up the cash (~$500k starting). Eventual goal is to move more rural but trying to build to FI. I found a property in my ideal dream location for $280k but it needs work, and can’t Airbnb it. Continued
How difficult is it to be counseled out at Big 4 firms? Is it common or do you really have to mess up? Are any of the firms more cutthroat than the others?
I’m looking to work in consulting in NYC post MBA. Should I apply to Kellogg? Seems like most of their consulting graduates go to Midwest offices.
Immediate reaction: cool! I bet that’s a really fun account and they’ll be hiring a lot! Second thought: oh wait, Richards Group has a mandatory start time *puts away resume* https://adage.com/article/agency-news/hold-shiner-beers-picks-richards-group-creative-shop/315950/
