Do any of the FAANG companies sponsor new H1B visas? I am on L1 visa and want to change companies but see no option :(

most companies wont sponsor a new H1B unless you're already working for them on OPT or something

Advice: from L1 I think it will be very difficult to go to H1B in a different company given that you need an offer, apply for H1B through lottery in April and if you get it, you can start working next October. I don’t think any company would wait for you about so many months (remember you need an offer in February the latest in order to apply in April). I’m afraid your only option is to stick with Accenture, get GC and then move to another company. Your other option is to go to H1B with Accenture and then you can transfer your H1b anytime to another company since you will not need to pass through the lottery again

I agree wit D1. L1 is a golden cuff which u literally cannot escape.

I do not agree with D1. I’ve seen coworker got sponsored by a much smaller tech firm. If you know how to code and code well, H1b isn’t even an issue.

the points do not talk abt h1b being an issue, but the timing and lottery challenge 1- need to be picked in lottery challenge 2 - can only work from October. no company can wait that long

Let me put it like this EY1: if a team hires OP just because they are bringing as much talent as they can in their unit, then they might wait for him. If they want to hire 1 person for a specific job that needs to be fulfilled in the short term they wouldn’t wait +8 months for him. Usually the case is the second option

Best budgeting apps? I have tried every dollar before but it got confusing bc I pay most things on a credit card that I pay off each month, so when I paid the card, the app didn’t know how to categorize the payment coming out of my checking account in my budget (plus it was a lump sum of things). I think I need one that will also link to my credit cards.

My H1B visa approval letter was mailed a month back (from 2017 lottery) Will this be with my lawyer? What do I need to do next?

When to bring up the visa sponsorship topic with recruiters? In the first conversation (when they reach out for a role) or at a later stage with the firm you’re interviewing for?

Switching jobs 'on receipt' instead of waiting for approval; H1B visa type. Thoughts?

Question ref travel - I recently switched employer and have the visa from old employer still valid. Can I travel with that? and just carry my new approved 1-797? Thanks in advance!

All this is a bit moot without seeing other benefits in context. As an aside, LETS also COMPARE BENEFITS OF THE BEHEMOTHS ie Publicis vs Omnicom vs WPP vs ... Especially since the work is often pretty much the same (it’s all advertising, folks). Publicis offers 3 week’s vacay (15 days) plus 9 “flex” days (giving a total of 24 days PTO). Plus unlimited sick days and many pre-and-post public holidays. But not the days between Christmas and New Year. And no summer Fridays. No comp days. And scant or no pay rises (as if that was new). What about the other companies? End of the day, when you go for a job, these things are worth money. So if you can, negotiate UP in case you never get a pay raise again...it happens.
