D1 do you know why it is hard to get the VISA approved? I will be on the same boat next year

Long story. If you are in Industry, you have a dedicated office. In consulting, you are on road. One thing is employee employer relationship- google that. Many bodyshops ( gulti Consulting firms) in the name of consulting does not comply to that relationship and does pay you by % cut on billable rates. When you are not billable you don’t get paid. For h1b it should be consistent pay so these firms have developed a way around by distributing pay equally. Some even give you fake pay-slips and make you pay tax out of pocket. Then next tier comes with TCS infosys cognizant etc. The inconsistent pay problem is solved but many places u at 60k salary in sfo but file your LCA at Plano texas. That way you are bypassing prevailing wage law and tax system. Then comes big 4. Good pay, follow all rules and pay taxes for you for each day where you work but they are minority compared to these desi firms and corporates. There is no way USCIS can target companies directly so they target the client vendor model. This means there is a collateral damage of deserving h1bs at big4. Now, for industry its straight forward. If you are at Apple or Cisco. USCIS can pay a random visit and verify. People who sit around you know you and you are easy to trace. One fixed location implies no tax issues too. Thus you are better off in Industry from an immigration standpoint. Moral of the story: our fellow Indians have abused loopholes in the system and should be blamed for this mess.

I received a message on LinkedIn from an internal recruiter at a company that sounded intriguing. Would it be bad form to ask for more information about the role and about comp up front? I wasn’t looking to leave my firm until later next year at the earliest, but the company sounds really interesting. Don’t want to waste a lot of time if the comp isn’t right, though.

I had the weirdest thing happen to me. The CTO flew down to meet with me and discuss start date, OTE Salary, and even emailed me the benefits guide. He scheduled a meeting with the CEO and said “offer letter to follow.” Three hours before the meeting the CTO called me to tell me they were rescinding everything due to a business decision that they aren’t filling the Solutions Architect role. Does this happen? What should I think of it?

Anyone go from MBB/T2 to MBA school and do something OTHER than return to consulting / go for high finance? Curious what your return on making that decision is and if it’s ever worth going if you’re already in consulting. Seems like most non-Consulting or IB jobs you could just skip the MBA.

Anyone here on a sponsored worker visa? I am switching employers to Accenture. I am being told I cannot clear a right to work check until my BRP arrives.

I'm trying to argue my case as I don't like the idea of losing two weeks, and I am approved. I cannot control the post delivery times...
