Hello, I am 36 and have over 250k in savings. I started saving late (at 32) as I didn’t make much and lived in NYC. I used to be on a visa and had little to say on my salary negotiations. Upon getting my green card, my salary doubled when I changed jobs and I started saving extensively. Today I make around 180k a year and am able to save $4.5k a month and 7% towards 401k. I have no kids and I am looking to maximize savings. Any advice? Thanks!
So I signed the green card application with a big4 in 2017, with a clause about giving the cost associated with filling the application back if I leave early. I left earlier this year(without getting the gc, my 140 is approved) and just got an email from HR asking for the money back. Do I need to pay it back? Should i lawyer up?Deloitte KPMG PwC EY I have a received a family based gc since then.
I applied for H1B in September but still haven’t received my EAD card. My 60 days are almost up. Is anyone in a similar situation or know how to handle it?
Recently hired SA here, got my H1-B this year. When does PwC typically file for a Green Card? Also, is there any way the process can be expedited (e.g.: a reason such as wife needs EAD) ? Thanks
Thinking about going to law school. I am 25 ,Senior consultant at a big 4 with a non-MBA masters and 3 YOE. I’ve always wanted to go to law school but needed to sort out immigration first. Worth it ?
If you submitted an H1-B application for this year's lottery, does it remain active through all subsequent lotteries this year? Specifically, does the submission of an I-485 under the family-based green card process lead the H1-B application to be withdrawn / not considered for any lotteries after the I-485 receipt date? Thanks!
Has anyone at Deloitte maxed out their H1B while waiting for perm approval? Does Deloitte put you on a LOA and change you to a B1/ B2 visa?
Spent a year in banking at an EB but had to go back to school because of H1B visa issues. About to start as a BA at McK in the fall. Any thoughts on my ability to recruit for summer 2022 PE Assoc roles? Or do I have to spend minimum 2 years in consulting before making the switch?
For folks who were on OPT and didn’t get the H1B lottery, what did your firm end up doing? Did they have any contingency plans in place?
Trying to apply for marriage based green card as H1B has been rejected. What do you recommend? Do it on our own, get a lawyer, or get EY law to help?
On h1b grace period now, if I do manage to get a new job, how long will it take for employer to file h1 transfer? I know consultancies do it faster but spoke to cognizant today and they told 7 weeks!
Manager on H1B. Green card wait is 150 year for EB2. What about moving to Canada for 1 year and join back in US. Will PwC consider to switch my green card from EB2 to EB1. Any thoughts?
I’ve been on H1B October 2019, expiring in 2022. I’m kind of clueless as to what happens next. Does my firm start the green card process soon because it’s been almost 2 years (ive heard/read you need to work 2 years before they do that at big 4). What does that entail and how long until the green card comes out after that? And when they renew my H1B for another 3 years is that a guarantee extension and not a lottery like the first one?
Can anyone guide International Professionals like me, in New York to Break into top Management Consulting / Strategy Consulting firms in U.S. We MBA' face lot of situations as we don't even get interview calls from Deloitte, McKinsey, EY, KPMG, AT Kearney, Booz Allen, PWC, BCG, BAIN to name some due to Visa status like F1 OPT. Still how can I get a role as Strategy Consultant or Management Consultant at any Big MNC ?? I recently lost my job- Tech Strategy Manager at mid Consulting, LA SFO firm.
Are there opportunities to work India while continuing to work from EY USA? I’m looking to be home for a few months but cannot move there at the moment as my green card process was initiated recently
@H1B consultants - how painful is H1B amendment process these days for starting a new engagement? Have you noticed any repercussions for amendment denials or RFE?
EY folks on a h1b visa, if you are working remotely for a couple of months from a relatives place, have you informed EY law ? Was visiting my relatives in a different state and decided to stay here for a while. Thinking what issues might arise if I do this
Anyone done a H1B transfer lately? How long did it take for you? Please indicate if it was premium processing or not. TIA!
I got an interview at Wharton but really want to go to Kellogg or Tuck. Does getting an interview at Wharton (and having decent Kellogg/Tuck interviews) indicate that I have a strong chance of getting in? Hoping for some $$ also!
What do you guys wear on your Monday am flights? Do you go straight to client site? Interested in others' routines.
Has anyone been fired? Recently happened to me and I'm struggling with how to deal with it. Like how do I tell my SO, parents, friends?
Happy holidays! What kind of craziness is everyone putting up with this year? I’ll start — my MIL told me my daughter scowls too much and that she needs “baby Botox”, and my sister just announced that she’s bringing the husband she’s been separated from (and that no one has spoken to) for 2yrs. Can’t wait! 😅
I think my coworker is gaslighting me. She is on a project I am leading and has made it clear she doesn’t respect me. She will either try to counter everything I say or if someone counters what I say
Perks of growing up poor. I find I am not attracted to or mirror a lot of the expensive behaviors/ habits like most of my consulting friends. Perfectly happy staying at a Marriott or la fitness, I don’t have that desire to always stay at the Ritz Carlton or be an equinox member.
People that have been furloughed or laid off, have you been able to successfully apply for unemployment or is there a backlog?
Have a little over 5 YOE & several manager level roles with experience in change management, SaaS, technology implementations, Salesforce, healthcare. Making $135k now - what roles can I look for with this experience / a pay bump? Would love to move into health/life sciences tech (or any tech company) & looking into both FAANG-type roles and smaller startups. Any advice on specific companies / roles to look into?
What are some “fair” news sources? I’m sick of both extreme sides. It’s overwhelming trying to figure out what’s accurate anymore.
Anyone score awesome flight deals on Cyber Monday? Seeing some decent options on Alaska Airlines and Qatar Airways.

Does anyone know of any website that lets you filter in-house positions by those who allow remote work? I’m assuming this does not exist but wanted to see if any of y’all have any thoughts.
