Is it ethical to say NO to the company which I already accepted the offer and they already started immigration process. P.S. I got a better offer than other company which has more RSU'S AND better base pay.
EY 🐠, want some help understanding how’s the immigration support there? Is there a12 month waiting period before the GC process starts? TIA.
My H1B visa transfer with EY has been approved. We have received the e-approval. Can I now resign or give notice at my current firm? The guidance apparently is to wait for physical copy of the approval before officially resigning. But that date is uncertain and I’m afraid I could get the physical copy a day before my start date or a week after that. I’d like to give my firm around two weeks notice and I am scheduled to start on 27th Sept. Thoughts? As usual, radio silence from my EY recruiter.
Was talking to this girl ( arranged marriage ) over the past couple of months(jun-sep) and things were progressing towards in the correct direction. During our inital conversion in the early stages, I had mentioned everything about my status (h1b. with early stages of perm,i-140 stage) and told her how she won't be able to get EAD immediately after coming the US) All of sudden she said(oct) she now does not want to come to the US as my status does not allow her to work immediately in the US.
Given long wait times to get green card, do you all prefer to keep renting or buy a house since life can’t stop. Thoughts?

Hi Fishes I’m getting an international transfer from EY Abroad to EY US. Has anyone submitted documents on INSZoom for L1 visa? How long did Visa team take? I feel the visa process is way too long. Please share any first hand experiences. I signed my offer letter in August, submitted my docs last week on INSZoom. Anyone in the same boat?
Wondering if anyone had moved to consulting from PhD? Any challenges you foresee in filing green card under EB1A independently. My company is not willing to file for green card at this stage. Any recommendations on lawyers?
I am almost 2 years into my H1B. They haven’t started my I140 but when I joined told me that I would be eligible in a year of which I am coming up on in this Oct. I got a new offer today but they told me that they would apply I140 after a year from when I join. The pros of the new one is TC more than 18k with sign-on of 15k (not sure clauses for this) and better wrk-life bal). My question is, how long into H1B is it advisable to have an I140 applied for. Would 3-4 years into my H1B be too late?
Canadian working in the US on an L1 visa. Thinking about exiting...debating whether to come back to Canada or look in the US. But, I’ll need to get a visa again... are TNs still granted for managers etc? In consulting or in tech?
What are some scenarios that would cause the USCIS to deny someone’s H1B after being selected in the lottery?
Thinking outside the box: need H1B renewal stamping, eligible for Dropbox in my home country. However, going there is still risky in case of a 221g and consulates closed. Can I send my passport to my home country through a friend for Dropbox stamping? Once the stamping is done, I can travel to home country (after they courier my passport back) Is this possible or am I going crazy?
Has anyone successfully transferred their H1B visa from one employer to another employer while overseas?
Should I get an OCI card? Would like to visit India this summer. Have existing 10year stamp that's valid but not sure if tourist visa suspension will be lifted by then.

How do you all find time for interviews? Currently I’m in the office around 6am and leave around 9pm. Friday’s I start meetings in bed at 5am and finish around 5pm. Should I take them at the airport?

HYP grad with summa, MBB, 750+ GMAT, but weak extracurriculars - how likely is one of HSW?
I’m an immigrant with H1B. Been wanting to get out of my firm so badly but every time I apply outside, I start getting dragged into work at my current firm.I was going through some pretty rigorous interviews (I failed them) and have been in a slump since. Meanwhile my current firm keeps dumping work on me and I can’t find the time to apply outside. Anyone been through something similar? I’m losing hope.The politics is also so toxic, they started screwing me over since my last performance review.

Mamas who travel... how did you overcome the fear of having your child not have the same “mom” relationship with you?
I get interrupted a lot at work now that we are virtual. I don't feel like this happens to everyone else in my team as much, meaning folks tend to let them talk longer. So I've reduced my contribution and talk less. But then others make the same point I'm thinking and would normally have said. So now I just look like a silent non-contributor or someone who gets interrupted a lot. Office/team culture is generally good, respectful and peaceful. How do I change this? What can I do differently?
Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls
I got laid off today and need a new job asap. Would love to connect with anyone looking for a junior writer.
