Hi Folks, my F-1 visa expired earlier this year and I’m currently on STEM OPT. Would love to go back home (India) for two weeks during December/Jan but haven’t had any luck yet with getting appointments to stamp my visa. Anyone else on the same boat?
Hi everyone. A PDM specialist here. Joined Deloitte 5+ years back as ‘Senior Solution Engineer -On-site’.Later in June 2017 all these ‘on-site’ folks got rebranded as PDM. Slowly started to realize how PDM is getting sidelined as a ‘discountable’ group. Sometimes I feel contract jobs are better than being at PDM , but obviously tied up with D for visa related issues.No career progression so far and don’t see any positive changes in the near future as well.I think it’s high time to call it a day.

Anyone know which agency sponsors employment based green card? My currency company won’t sponsor until my h1b expires in 2-3 years, so i’m curious to see how other companies handle.

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?
