Thinking about buying a single family home for ~600k in the next year or so OR pushing it out an additional year to get a multi family for ~1m. Thoughts? Current HHI ~175k, $40k student loan debt ($200 monthly) no other debts (credit card/car etc) Project HHI for option two ~210k. Let’s assume I can save 75k for DP for option 1 and 150k for option 2.

Hi folks - Any recommendations for a good immigration lawyer? Looking for some guidance on my wife’s OPT/H4/EAD
If you could work remotely full time and live anywhere in the US where would you choose to live? (Assuming all visa hassles addresses around proximity to office etc)
Legit question: now that 90% of you all don’t have an expense account or travel, why are you doing consulting? Wlb and pay are shit, professional dev opps are good but can be developed in 2-3 years - so why not leave after
L1B to L1A then EBC1 - possible? I’m currently on a L1B at Accenture, based in US which will expire soon and getting extended. Accenture hasn’t been super helpful with my immigration inquires. I’m up for manager and debating if I should do the L1B to L1A transfer or just wait it out until my L1B expires. Do I not qualify for EBC1 since I got my L1A in the country and not prior to transferring with that 1 year managerial experience abroad?
First time doing a transfer on H1B. Got the approval notice from the prospective firm and signed their offer letter. Planning to resign tomorrow and provide a two weeks notice. Am I (CONTINUED)
Can we as H1B holders put our real estate investments under and LLC? I have some properties(primary and investment) that I’d like to put under an LLC. Anyone with this experience?
I heard that the US immigration has started doing i-130 for eb1c under premium processing. Does anyone know if this is true?
Did I need to get an H1B visa stamping if I’m in the US? I was on OPT and got my H1B while on it so ive been in the US since 2014, never left. It’s time to renew my H1B and the questionnaire is asking for my current visa info such as the visa number. I don’t have a visa stamp for my H1B because I was in the US. I do have one for my F1 that is obviously expired. I only have the I-747A for my H1B. Did I not get an H1B stamping when I needed to for 2+ years…?
Did we ever get Marriott points from the promotion last year? 3rd night onwards we get 1000 points
What do I need to do to sponsor B2 visa for my parents? Is there a chance US grants B2 to sister and brothers as well?! I am a GC holder.
McKinsey offer states that they will file Green Card after 18months at the firm. Thats a long time, I am on H1B with approved i-140. Has anyone able to negotiate this. They seem pretty firm about it.
Has any big4 folks who are on H1Bs done internal rotations at a different service line within their firms? Can you share your experience on the visa side of things please?
I love this company so much I'm not bringing my wallet to lolla just in case I lose my Amex
Any tips in internal transfers? I’d like to be relocated to a few other offices in other countries (US or Canada), and from what I know getting a visa can be the difficult part. (Cont’d)
Has anyone gotten their h1b lottery receipt yet?
What do salary increases look like for you as you change agencies? Biggest jump for me was 18k Especially when keeping position relatively the same
I have two offers: 1. a strategy and ops role at a late stage startup, pre ipo (think databricks, Stripe) 2. a data science role at a bank. Comp is roughly the same at 270k TC. I’m much more interested in data science long term, but have FOMO about missing out on pre ipo shares. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
Wrapping up maternity leave and negotiating start and end times with the nanny. What time do your nannies come over and how late do they stay? Both husband and I are consultants and our hours are so unpredictable. Nanny can come 8 hours a day. We are thinking 9-5 and then based on our day, one of us takes care of the baby for another two hours and do the bath/bed time around 7ish.
Hey fishes, could you please tell me how many interview rounds are there in PwC SDC for a Manager position? Any insights would be helpful. Thanks in advance!
Does anyone have any tips for how to get an exclusively breastfed baby to take a bottle. My son is 5 months old and since he was 1 month old, I pumped maybe twice a week and gave him the bottle. From around 2 weeks ago, he refuses to drink the bottle, even when he is very hungry. I have tried different bottles and ensure the temperature is warm. The milk tastes normal (I tried a bit!). :/
Everyone talking about “re focusing on what matters”, or “putting things in perspective “... I’m a skeptical and believe after this COVID madness is gone, we will all go back to our old selfish self... I love the fact our carbon footprint is much lower now, but again, believe this will be short lived. What do you think?
On the Bloomberg Article about Faster Promotion/Pay Raises: Who at MS is trying to get your boy a job?! 😂
Am I an attractive candidate at all? Or is it silly to think I could jump soon for a comp increase? 1 yoe BAH fed (7 yoe in nonprofit sector before that), currently at 90k. Have some generalist certifications (agile, prosci, working on instructional design). Non-technical, no master’s. Resume is mostly attractive bc of extensive international/cross-cultural experience & DoS experience. Am I still too “meh” with only 1yoe & no tech skills?
I’m planning on asking for a raise for the first time in my career and I want to list out my accomplishments but I don’t want to seem cocky about it. (cont’d)
Being promoted to a direct manager of my previous peers after a relatively short time. Any advice on team building and maintaining a strong culture with these changes?
Anyone have first hand experience working at Ryan, LLC? Pay/Culture/Leadership/Diversity etc..
Any must-read book recommendations for folks in our field, especially for the younger crowd (e.g. Analysts/Consultants)?
Parents are flying over from Singapore and considering booking on Korean air. Any idea if it is good? Parents are used to flying a lot, but a little slow with English.
Am I correct in thinking that case study interviews became a major part of strategy and management consulting recruitment around 2005? Folks I know who were in consulting a longer time ago don’t really have experience with them, but all the younger folks seem to. I see case interviews happening in industry for consulting-heavy teams and it strikes me as being biased against older folks who haven’t been as exposed. I’m curious about your thoughts. Thanks!
What’s the best approach in leaving your current firm to avoid hella backlash? Currently staffed on a large project where SM and client is dependent on me for many things for the implementation. Ramp up time to hire someone new and train would be roughly 4 months. Strong chance they’ll counteroffer but I’m set on leaving. Am I overthinking it?
For those in smaller high growth tech companies, where do you turn for resources on org development, engagement, trends, etc.? I’m moving from a large tech org to a a 150 person company. SHRM does not seem relevant at all. Podcasts, social media followings, etc?
How long should I stay at an “A-list” agency if I haven’t made anything worthwhile? It’s not for a lack of work ethic but a lack of luck with everything getting killed by client.
