Horrible decision. You need to refile i140 and it’s basically like finding a new job

Would recommend against it. No travel is tge only upside but everything is down

I am on GC so didn't impact me but I heard that as per recent policy changes at PwC, visa won't be sponsored for internal roles anymore. I personally know of one internal person who is now looking for another job at the end of her current visa period.

I have a colleague who moved into an internal role and on H1B and after many years of trying to justify, they have started her on a green card process too. Unfortunately she got denied on her H1B application this year and will now have to move out of the US temporarily while they wait to move to the next step in green card process.

Overall I find that in an internal role, the business is less likely to push for visa and green card. I’m in an billable role and got my green card process started much earlier as it was easier to justify.

My suggestion is to stay in the billable role unless you have other options on the table (marriage, etc.)

I am still not as far in the process anyways so not sure if it will affect me... Was it easy to find and justify the position though? I wanted to know if pple will sponsor visa for internal role? How common is that?

I am worried that if I try to go internal my firm will not sponsor visa extension or the Uscis will not allow per new policies or something else just trying to test waters before I make the decision

Then why are you doing it?

Because I am tired of the travel but still need the job and visa

Please elaborate on your experience and cons thanks M1

OP curious to see what you decided on. I am in a similar situation. Which firm are you at?

My three month old baby’s tummy really rumbles and bubbles when she starts taking her bottle. And sometimes she cries and whines like the formula hurts her.

I don’t think it’s food allergies as she has no other symptoms (no weird poop, no excessive spit up, etc.), but it’s still worrying as she seems so uncomfortable sometimes. (Cont)
