For those, who are immigrants, what made you stay in New York? Would be especially interested to hear from those who didn’t come for economical reasons. I am told the excitement about the city wears off 😅 I am European, just came 2 years ago and am still loving it, but also start to wonder if staying in a job I don’t like it’s all worth it (I am on L1 visa, so no way to find a new job). Life in Europe isn’t too bad either.

Hi guys, I am in a process of receiving an offer from my current employer’s US Branch. However, the job is gonna be in a different department (M&A) than the one I worked for here (Audit). Would that be an issue with respect to the L1 visa process? Thanks for the advise.

Curious to thoughts on “best time” to get pregnant/have kids. Am currently a first year consultant and would like to have one soon, but worried about my reputation and promotion timing.
I saw that Accenture is looking to hire pen testers. I know that salary isn’t listed, but what is a range I can expect? I’m just not trying to be taken advantage of and be drastically under paid like my previous employer.

How seriously does Deloitte act on the HR complaint made against a SM who is extremely rude, abrasive, disrespectful to all his team members. Your inputs/experiences are highly appreciated. Deloitte
