In house lawyers for global companies: do you expect your international travel to rebound - ever? I am at a firm where I practice in government enforcement and investigations, and I always saw myself going in house to do this work and travel abroad frequently. Are those days gone because of zoom?
If you go from h1b to h4, but still have time left on your original h1b visa, can you switch back to h1b easily?
Anyone looking for a roommate in the late September / early October timeframe? Hoping to stay towards the southwest part of manhattan / possibly Jersey City.
Thinking of dropping my United Club card. Use it primarily for lounge access, but I also have a Corp Amex Platinum card which gets me into Centurion and partner lounges. Contd...

I have $4,000 in my emergency fund and $1,100 left in total consumer debt (a credit card balance at a 10% interest rate). I’m tempted to pay it off right now, but in light of what’s going on in (cont)
Was talking to this girl ( arranged marriage ) over the past couple of months(jun-sep) and things were progressing towards in the correct direction. During our inital conversion in the early stages, I had mentioned everything about my status (h1b. with early stages of perm,i-140 stage) and told her how she won't be able to get EAD immediately after coming the US) All of sudden she said(oct) she now does not want to come to the US as my status does not allow her to work immediately in the US.
Who said hotel weeknights were boring ? 😁
I want to confirm, Canadian with 1 shot (second scheduled for fall). I can travel to Greece with a negative PCR test? This is what I see in the guidelines but want to check against others’ experience. Will see if I can get a second vaccine before then but can’t count on it.
United won't let me check in for my Caribbean flight without seeing my passport in person and has a dumbass passport scanning phone app feature that doesn't work. Anyone dealt with this? #FuckUnited
How long can you do the weekly travel before you need a break? I just hit 20 weeks including lots of Fridays at the client and weekend trips and wondering if it’s unreasonable to ask for a remote week
Given long wait times to get green card, do you all prefer to keep renting or buy a house since life can’t stop. Thoughts?
Curious as to views on alt. inv. Anyone stray off the beaten path with any of the below? 1.) Bitcoin mining (aka worth the initial investment in the hardware?) 2.) real estate REITs - most likely through Fundrise 3.) peer-2-peer lending. 4.) cryptocurrencies 5.) franchising a (cheap) business 26M, debating if any of them will yield higher returns than my VTTSX fund, which I invest in through both 401k & Roth. Curious as to your guys thoughts.
I received a $500 visa gift card and want to get something nice for myself. Any suggestions?
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?...
Recently laid off from KPMG audit after 3 years. I’m on an H1B so odds are tough. If anyone could help me with a referral to a transaction services/restructuring role at another services firm or middle market bank, would be grateful. I know it’s a long shot but thought it’s worth posting.
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.
Has anyone successfully transferred their H1B visa from one employer to another employer while overseas?
After you get your physical green card, do you have to get like a stamp on your passport as well?
Have anyone heard about Deloitte & Associates? They are handling my H1b transfer. Are they good?

So I started at a new role at a known retailer about 2 months ago. I am their first hire in this role, as I have more than 5 years of relevant experience leading initiatives and optimizing process across departments. While I understand it takes time to adjust to the culture, its seems like all I have witnessed is resistance to change. I already feel myself not wanting to be here long, but I'm putting pressure on myself to not be a quitter. Would you stick it out or start looking?
Is there any difference in salary between Deloitte and KPMG? Just curious. Thinking to move to KPMG
Would u give up ur beloved pet to move in w ur SO? My bf has a viscous, possessive cat that only is nice to him. That cat attacks, bites, & scratches w an aggression that is clearly designed to maim, not play. I dn’t feel like I can ask him to shelter the cat bc the thing would surely be put down. None of his friends or fam want to adopt it & get attacked by the little beast for the nxt 15 yrs. Plus if we don’t work out., he’s without his baby for no reason. I want a life w him bt idk what to do
What are the potential exit opps from Finance Transformation? Pretty sick of process/tech in Finance function and want to do something more fulfilling 🥴
Anyone familiar with Simon Kutcher - in deciding which office to apply for, are the projects region specific/any emphasis towards a particular industry across the offices? What about the size and office culture?
Anyone have any insight on the culture/personality differences between the Northeast and SoCal?
Can anyone tell me if there is Christmas holiday of 1 week in EY GDS for all employees? I'll be joining soon and I'm planning for a Christmas vacation.
Is it possible to have good performance reviews but not receive a full time offer after a summer internship?
Is it better to wait until promo before switching to other firms? Applying to MBB but worried that if I get the offer I’ll end up switching right before I get my promo from Deloitte. I would likely reset to entry level at MBB either way but the pay would be a substantial bump from my current pay (even after promo). I’m in my second year at Deloitte out of undergrad.
Does anyone have a standing desk mat they recommend? I have a large L desk that is convertable and looking for one thst is comfortable to stand on but could also have a chair role over it for when I'm sitting
Anyone in the short term rental market? I think we are going to see more and more people staying in Airbnb’s versus hotels even after post-covid. Been looking at a few markets to invest in - but wanted to see if anyone else here has.
Had an intern whom I could not recommend for hire. She didn’t report to me directly so I never gave her feedback directly. She just asked if she can list me as a reference How would you respond?
Anyone care to share one city for someone considering 1st time Airbnb/short term rental and just briefly why you pick such city? I have been investing in traditional long term lease investment properties. Looking to expand into Airbnb to increase cash flow.
