This is a long shot but wondering if anyone has experienced this. I just changed to H1B status last Oct and my bank mailed me recently after tax filing deadline (I have filed tax in time using H&R block) asking me to fill out W9 if I am a resident alien / another form if I am not.

What companies use product principles in their development process. LinkedIn is big on this - every PRD lists out “product principles” at the top and they’re heavily discussed. I think it’s an odd part of the product culture at LinkedIn and an curious what other companies do this.
