The one with a better boss


Yeah I know someone who chose the boss option and they left immediately after the person joined and they were stuck in new hire limbo for a while. And when the boss left it made her suddenly fill in and take the responsibilities of the boss who left at the same level.



What was your process to get selected to interview for these great positions? Congrats!


JPM is probably better to work at on a day to day basis (wlb, culture). Uber is more likely to grow (more rides as pandemic wanes) and open more doors elsewhere in tech. Uber has the advantage due to growth.


Ehh a big part of uber now is uber eats. Not entirely sure how much the revenue will shift

The one with better work life balance.



Depends in where you want to go and what type of firm you want to work for next? More west coast and tech in your future? Uber. More traditional business NYC players? JPM

I am literally waiting for Green Card Interview - EB3 ROW ( I know it’s not current, hopefully will be by Oct). My 180 days has passed since my I-485 was filed, I-140 approved, got my combo EAD card.

Got to final round interviews with a tech company back in March. They said they were very interested, but because of COVID they were closing the requisition with hopes of reopening it Sept.

Have not heard anything from the company, is it a lost cause at this point?
