I have a return offer following my internship for an MBB in my home country in SE Asia. However, I want to stay in the US after my MBA (salary, relationship, network etc.). Would it make sense to get offers from T2s to put pressure on my company to enable a transfer? If so, how would I best play this card? I would likely pick any US firm over any MBB at home, given the financial considerations.

Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?

Has anyone successfully caught an associate falsifying time? I initially became suspicious because the amount of office chit chat I’ve witnessed and nature of social media postings (frequent bar trips midweek) wasn’t adding up with his alleged hours billed. I pulled his time and it’s hard to say if it’s falsified or if he’s just incompetent - and I don’t want to go to my other partners if I’m not 100% sure. But it’s hard to believe he honestly spent .8 reviewing a one page order.

Working at Deloitte, came from another B4. Resigned with my prev employer 2 wks before I could complete a year with them, knowing that the 2 wk notice would get me over the 1 year mark. As I was joining a competitor, they insisted that my resignation day be my last day & there would be no notice period. So I left my prev employer 2 weeks before I could complete a year. Now they need me to pay back half the relocation comp because I didn't spend a year with them. Do I have a case against this?
