If they laid off an operations group and you are in a front office role then I wouldn't be worried. But if they laid off operations and you are being hired for operations then I would be worried. But in FS u can easily get hired by another firm within a week.

How much $?

It's an internal consulting, in-house strategy type of roll. Is that considered front office? And they did make some cuts to this group 6 months ago, but are rehiring again....not sure what to make of that

They cut too many, so you're safe?

I need an opinion. I've been considering changing my H-1B to F-1. Reason being that my current job is taking an immense toll on my health.

My exit opportunities are very limited because it'd likely be a job of the same nature as the one I have. I'd be hard, but I'm willing to go back to school to study something else and try a different career. Is this doable?
