Hi, Does anyone have any data points on how long the current GC process is taking from the time you file the I485 application? I have a friend who filed back in October 2020 and had her GC by May 2021. Trying to understand if that was an anomaly or if 7-8 months is the current average. Any input would be appreciated.

OP/BCG1 - Might you be able to share category (employment/family based) and field office?

Filed in May 2020 still waiting

Filed in October 2020 and still waiting (eb2). Based on my trackitt research, only 5% of eb2 folks in my service center got a gc who filed after my application date (mid October). Either your friends are in eb1 category or are very lucky

She was EB1.

Is EB1 i485 processing faster vs EB2? What else does processing time depend on? Nationality? Service Centre?

It does. Eb1 is 6-12 months faster now. Service center and FO are also impactful. Country only impacts your ability to file the docs. The processing time is more impacted by category / your location / rfes

Poll: IPad Pro 11” vs IPad Pro12.9” Why: Because I have Best Buy points I need to use in 2 days. How many: $500 equivalent. Use: Just traveling, reading, etc. have a MacBook Pro, so definitely nota supplement to a laptop. Commenters: “you can buy something other than iPad”. Yes, I can but I have most electronic gadgets I need and I rent, so no big appliances. But open to suggestions if there’s something very out of the ordinary from Best Buy. Thank you in advance :)

What do you recommend for a high performing senior manager to do in order to increase their compensation? I have always been rated very high relative to my peers, and I have never wanted to use another offer to get more money...but it seems I am still underpaid relative to market/some peers who aren’t homegrown. How do you feel when someone leverages another offer to get more money - do you trust them/feel the same affinity for them afterwards? Is there another better way?

I’m so sick of politics and people politicizing things that don’t need to be. This is the perfect time for a new political party to come out called the “I hate politics, let’s just” party (pun intended). Instead of blue or red it’ll be colorless. It’ll just include normal f-ing people who meet in the middle to agree on things and avoid drama. People will stop posting polarizing political posts with misinformation, and just post about normal things. Illegitimate news outlets will have less fuel.
