H1B stamping - How long can you stay in home country if Dropbox processing is delayed / there’s a request for more information?

@ Korean people who’ve recently gotten their H1B stamped in Seoul (or any other visa) — did the embassy/consulate people check/ask which date you landed in South Korea?
Advice needed: I want to divorce my husband but we’re in the process of filing for his green card (close to the end of the process now). I feel conflicted... cont’d below
Incoming McKinsey hire - do most people keep AMEX green card or upgrade to the gold? I was thinking of getting Gold so I can redeem points. I already have a platinum.
Hi Guys, Need your suggestion. I dropped papers and after a month I got a mail that my profile is shortlisted for Google business unit inside tcs. They say if visa will be raised immediately and I will moved to UK. What's the probability of this. Hope it is not a lollypop to make me take back resignation. Tata Consultancy
I am on i140 and my 6 year h1b is expiring soon and hence need to file an h1b extension. Can anyone who has got an h1b extension done recently tell me for how long are they extending h1b.?
Any one gotten any updates from EY LAW about H1B decisions ? I got fast tracked and I’m pretty sure it’s been 15 days already
In light of the recent enquiries here about switching from H1b to L1 to cut the backlog queue (cont'd)
I am on an h1b in city A and I found another job in a city B. In terms of providing documents to the new employer for the h1transfer, will it be a problem if I do not have an address in city B as yet? What are my options? I was thinking I would find an apartment while my transfer petition is being processed. Anyone that can relate to this?
Hey Fam, quick urgent question - Has anyone here travelled to India on e-tourist visa over the past month? My wife has an e-tourist visa approved on Oct 22, and we have an Air India flight booked in a week from SF -> Delhi. Just wondering if e-tourist visas are now allowed via the air bubble pact between India and the US? Thanks a lot in advance for all the guidance!
If you have a pending I485 and your FAD is current, how do you answer the question on needing future immigration sponsorship? Technically I don’t, but that’s assuming that I’ll either use the AOS EAD or my GC will be approved before needing to renew my visa…..life of an immigrant!
My wife is on L2 visa, waiting for USCIS to change the I 94 so she can work. In the meantime, can she start a job with a company in India, travel to US on L2, and continue to work remotely? She will start her US job as soon as her I94 change comes through or EAD is approved. What if any are the legal ramifications of working for a foreign company while on L2?
HR1044 just passed Congress, potentially no more employment based visa caps for Indian if it passes the Senate
Any insight into kpmg’s immigration process. How much time does it take to get h1 transfer. It has been almost 6 weeks since I accepted the offer and submitted my documents two weeks back. Fragomen keeps on coming back with the results for additional documents..
I-140 and I-484 both approved six months ago, don’t have another job yet. Any impact on green card receipt if I quit now without a job?
Any management/ technology consultants applied for 482 visa? Heard some people got exemption. Any tips would be appreciated:)
Received an NOID on my H1B petition. What are my chances? And what can be my next steps? If someone has been in the same situation, I can use your help urgently. Thanks!

Non-tech consultant with a strategy background, and I got approached by recruiter for a role at Accenture. How much pure-play management and strategy consulting do they do? Or is it in the context of addressing a client’s technology problems? Is tech consulting work the long tail of any strategy and management consulting services?
What is your year end holiday plan, if any?
Just returned from my combined family vacation with my SO. I initially thought it would be a great idea to being our parents along to show them a new country and give back for everything they’ve given us in life. Fast forward I’m more exhausted than before the vacation. My mother has been toxic all the way and didn’t miss out on a single opportunity to criticize my relationship. My in-laws were either talking all the time about random stuff or fighting between each other. Continuing…
Anyone made the jump from agency to freelance PM and can live to tell about it? I want the highs and the lows. I’ve been seriously considering it more and more, but need to know the truth about what to expect. More than anything, I want to be remote and be able to make my own schedule. Any pointers on how to get started? I’d love to do a budget exercise as well, to see how to make it all work—but I know it’s very unpredictable. Any tips/tricks are appreciated!
So uh anyone want to hire a Junior Designer for a remote position? Maybe that person could be me? Just got the return to office news.. kinda desperate.
I’m planning on getting the AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate cert. Is there any point to getting the AWS Cloud Practitioner cert as well or is that just paying $100 for no reason?
would it be perceived badly if I would go to another firm only after one year of working here? The new position would pay 25-30% more than the current one.

Any AWS TPMs that can shed some light on interview process? I have my first round of phone interview in a few days and would love to hear some tips, questions, experiences.. thanks in advance!
I’m not much of a conspiracy theorist, but am I the only person who thinks the mass publication of the Omicron variant by the media was due to traditionally low viewership during the holidays? It seems like the Media wants to dictate COVID’s trajectory & demise to align with their business strategy. As overall viewership falls in a post-Trump era and waning COVID numbers, big media has to be a little nervous about audience retention.
A little birdie told me time to jump ship, layoffs are coming... this firm is terrible with managing staff/forecasting needs - hope they trim at the top this time...ugh
MBB fish: Thoughts on 2 vs. 4 months transition if you knew exactly what you wanted to do and wouldn’t need more than 2 months for it to get panned out. Why would you still take 4 months?
Hi, I am hired as senior test engineer for automation testing profile in EY AND WIPRO The reason I am not selecting EY is just because I don't have any practical exposure working in automation testing and I am afraid that it's better to work in Wipro and get practical exposure and then try for big brands like EY. Also, in EY I will be asked to work in client location. Where I might get into difficult situation Anyone would like to comment on this? Is my decision of selecting wipro correct?
Research: What’s the stance taken by your PE firm on work from home vs coming to the office?
Hi ladies! Need some advice on what to do here: For context: I live in Texas and work from home. I put in a request with my apartment to fix the ongoing air issues in my master bedroom. The maintenance guy showed up without a mask. When I asked if he could please put on a mask, he left, returned and stated that they are still waiting on masks and isn’t sure of when they’ll be getting them. (Cont. in comments)
Dumb question but what makes up total compensation? Obviously salary, but bonus is so variable it seems difficult to add and RSUs usually are given out over a beating period so in theory are finite (ex. only given for four years)
For those of you that left big 4 accounting to do MBA, did you leave at Senior level (3-4 YOE) or at the Manager level (5 YOE). I would assume to leave at manager level would be more ideal as when you come back to the workforce you should at the very least be ready to come in at manager or above at your next job? Thoughts?
