Has anyone tried switching your employer when you had less than 2 years left on your H1B with an approved I140?

Can’t you renew your h1b if your I-140 is already approved?

Normal scenario for many. What is your concern?

Most of the employers ask for at least 2years left on H1B

Most of employers have this requirement for people without approved i140.

Yes I did

Can someone explain very simply in their own words what the steps of going from H1B to GC is? I googled it myself but just confused about the forms associated with each step (I-140, I-485, etc.) and the approx time of each step. So far my firm has extended my H1B a month ago and while doing so asked me to briefly describe my job duties for the PERM labor certification application. Does that mean the GC process has been started? My h1b is till late 2024. What kind of timeline am I looking at?

Grant Thornton Tax manager or KPMG Specialist 2? I got a few offers recently, and now have to make a decision between Grant Thornton Tax manager or KPMG Specialist 2. GT has higher salary and position, while KP's people are really nice and professional during the interview, besides it's hard for me to say no to a Big 4 opportunity. GT is focusing on enterprise and high net worth taxes, while KP is focusing on energy mining industry tax and tax provisions. Hard to make decision!

How do you guys schedule your hours? Say I need to hit 200 hours per month. Currently I take the amount of working days in a month (M-F) and divide it by 200 to get how many hours I need to bill per day. For example, May has 20 working days, so I need to bill 10hrs./day M-F. I’ve done exactly that thus far and have been able to stick to a pretty consistent schedule. But I know a lot work on weekends. For instance, if I worked Saturdays too there are 25 billable days which means 8hrs/day.

Need advice - working less than a month. I recently moved to industry as VP role from audit.

I worked all wknds just to figure out if I can compete the work or not, and concluded that it’s beyond my capacity. I was not told this during interview, and the culture is very toxic as well.
