TLDR: First time H1B RFE =purely a wait game? got RFE last Monday, wrote to lawyer last and this Monday but haven’t heard back. Should I just sit and wait? How long does it typically take for people to hear back RFE results? I have friends who waited for 4+ months last year but also saw cases of a few weeks in this bowl. Confused and lost.

Is 2 Weeks notice mandatory? I'm in California and on H1b if it makes any difference. Can I give 1 week notice?
Has anyone taken an unpaid leave on H1b without leaving the country? I am just really burnt out with work, kids and taking care of my wife who is recovering from a severe case of covid. Would love to not work for a month. She is on H4.
Editing my cv for FAANG strategy roles (specifically Google and Facebook). Any tips on what to emphasise? Mckinsey + IB background with LBS EMBA; South African so would need that visa sponsership.
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.
Deloitte folks - Does anyone make personal payments through their Amex (for the points) and then expense them as personal? Is this allowed?
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.
This is a long shot but wondering if anyone has experienced this. I just changed to H1B status last Oct and my bank mailed me recently after tax filing deadline (I have filed tax in time using H&R block) asking me to fill out W9 if I am a resident alien / another form if I am not. This has never happened in previous years. Does it mean I missed a form using H&R block or is it related to the status change…?
Received a denial on my H1B RFE (not extension); PwC law says they did not receive a reason for the denial; is this possible? I have only 1 more attempt at the H1B - would it help for me to move?
Do Chase employees have to comply with independence requirements i.e., do they have restrictions in trading options and stock purchase (short term) or use of any brokerage firms
Absolutely hate consulting and been at it for 8 years. Decided to stay for various reasons - immigration, lack of good offers etc. But so glad that I didn’t take up any of those marginally better offers that were trying to shortchange me. Finally exiting to a opportunity that I always dreamt of. Takeaway: focus on what you really want and keep trying
Amex platinum card for business any good?
I have an interview with Guidehouse and I’m reviewing the benefits package. Could anyone share their thoughts on medical benefits and what to negotiate for. Coming in as a Managing Consultant in DC area. Thanks!
Anyone else care more about getting into a top grad school (ivy- MIT-Stanford) more to please your grandparents and overseas relatives than the career benefits? I feel a weight has been lifted as the eldest sibling
I feel as though the big 4 have so much administrative stuff to take care of cause we have the accounting arms, do MBB or boutique consulting firms have to worry about as many e-learnings & shit?
Is it weird to reach out and check up on ex coworkers who were recently laid off? Had a director I worked with closely laid off and want to reach out to them. Also think I’ll be laid off soon FWIW
Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
Considering leaving consulting for an industry job. Have been here for ~10 months so would be required to pay back the signing bonus. Anyone have experience negotiating this, with new or old company?
My renewal is coming up for CSR, my role moved 100% remote with no travel planned. Im going to call in to downgrade to CSP, but have people had any luck getting the renewal for CSR waived lately?
Have interview coming up, guidance on preparing business case, and conducting the analysis on the business case?

Debating between purchasing a house in Powder Springs vs Woodstock area. We are very much inclined towards diversity which includes some desi crowd as well. Opinions about these two areas will be greatly appreciated. TIA!
Has anyone been offered a status buy-up for 2021. ~$1700 short of United 1k this year and think my travel will increase a good bit starting next year. Think it could make sense, especially given the 2021 thresholds
Negotiating an offer for senior consultant EY cyber practice. Any insights on salary and sign-on bonus?
I have an interview for a senior associate role at an investment firm. However, I believe I am under qualified based of my YOE (1.5) because they are asking for a minimum of 3. Should I mention I am open to an associate role, or try to sell myself for the senior role? Thanks for the help!
Do you resign over email to HR/Coach or is a phone call more preferable in these Covid times?
My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
