Anyone buying a house in the current visa environment? Was holding back, but now I am like WTF, this is never ending, if things go south, I can sell it.
Mortgage rates: are these good? Trying to find the best with the lowest points. This home will be 5-7 year plan. Chase offered: 2.75% 1.57 points for 30 year or 2.8% .875 points for 30 year or 3.125%, no points for 30 year. Are these good? Gonna ask sofi next.
I'm sorry if this has been talked about before. Is it true that once you start the perm process you are stuck with your company till you get a green card? If you want to switch in the middle of the process do you have to start with perm all over again? I've tried to read about this but there is so much confusing info.
Anyone have flight booked with chase points but are trying to cancel now? The airline is allowing refunds on cancellations but I'm not sure how that works with Chase UR points.
If issued H1B RFE during H1B transfer how long does it typically take to resolve and get the approval? Filed with premium processing with Fragomen. How long can I expect fragomen to take, uscis processing time, etc?
Are we still seeing h1b transfer rejects with big4, FANG or other large consulting firms? Considering a switch.
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.
I was on opt from July 2020 to July 2021. I got my h1b approved in 2020 and chose to activate it via the consular processing method. I left the US in Jul 2021 and will finally visit the embassy for stamping tomorrow. If successful, does it mean that I could get another company to apply for a h1b transfer right away? Or do I have to enter the US before the h1b transfer process can start? Thanks!
YOE-10 My LWD in TCS is 20th Nov and I had my H1B stamping initiated before I resigned but due to embassy issues I am not getting visa stamped. Also my ASSOC promotion is due and has already been delayed by 6 months. After resignation I am being told that I will be sent immediately as soon as visa is stamped by embassy which I know is true but project is not ready to promote me in near future. I also have offer from Accenture with 22 LPA. Pls advise what wud hv been ur choice.. onsite or switch?
What is the point of recruiters. This isn’t to troll but I really don’t understand the point of recruiters. For the efficiency we all so dearly chase, won’t recruiters be an easy trim - esp the HHs working for third party firms.
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.
Does anyone know if you can get your h1b stamped somewhere else? I just scheduled an appointment in my country but they won’t see me until June 2023 😢
Amex Platinum is offering 20K points if you sign up for their “pay over time” option. I called about something else and they offered at the end of the call. No downside, you can still pay in full as usual. Just activated the option. Figured I’d pass the easy points to y’all!
Heard some people got H1B lottery results already. Hope we all get selected! Best of luck folks 🤠
At EY how do you get someone on the phone to talk about your immigration case? I used the intake form but never hear back and I need to talk to someone directly but don't know who to reach out to?
Are others seeing nepotism in candidates during recruiting that is counteracting diversity and inclusion efforts? How are you keeping the motivation to continue fighting for equality? Feeling very discouraged right now.
Partners, how do you perceive lateral hires from competing B4/ACN? Is there a perception of them not being good enough (out instead of up) or viewed as mercenaries with no investment in relationships?
Those that are coming on here talking about offers they are getting - for the most part is this people reaching out to you, or because you were actively searching and applying?
I used to always want to go to grad school for an MBA but now that I’m working, everything’s clicking and I’m on great projects, with a strong network and have some good years lined up. Continued...
I didn’t get any stimulus checks, and I didn’t get any sort of raise for recent inflation. I am significantly more poor than I was before covid because of this nonsense. Thanks, government.
I'm new to the industry and this is my first corporate job. Been working as a BI analyst for about 2.5 years and I roughly make $80k. I'm having a hard time trying to gauge how much should I be making, or if I speak to my manager about increasing compensation how much to ask for so I won't sound absurd. Do you all have any tips on this or are there any tools that I can use to accurately gauge how on average much I should be earning?
Have a case interview for an industry position. Does anyone have recommended resources for preparation?
I needed to find the appropriate bowl to brag. Not sure if this is the place, so forgive me if it is inappropriate. My 11th grade son was just waitlisted for a five day summer camp at his dream college: The United States Coast Guard Academy Even being waitlisted is a big accomplishment. I am so proud of him. If he doesn’t get invited to the summer camp, the Academy is suggesting a few other options, including an overnight stay this fall.

Anyone witness slackers who got into companies you have no idea how? Had a coworker who does jack chit at work besides chatting on Facebook yet lands at a faang company? I guess if he brings the same work ethic he will be spit out for sure. Or maybe he just had no interest in doing project work.
How have y’all balanced boundaries with extended family during covid? With the holidays coming up, are you going to skip any gatherings? What if your boundaries are less stringent than your wife’s?

Any EY🐠 can clarify what your Service Deliver Center is? See a role under “consulting” but the description says SDC so not sure if it’s aligned to consulting/advisory or an entirely different service line under service delivery center (which are 2 different things at D).
I need a new car and still waiting on the compensation damage (personal injury). Thinking about getting a lease to finance it and then pay it off once I receive the money. Any cons to this? I don’t want to put my savings into a car. Thank you!
Transferring from Assurance to PI (advisory) within the same city. currently a staff 2, but they are offering staff 1 advisory salary saying that “not everybody gets adj”. Should I negotiate?

How do you apply for jobs while working 12 hr days?? Prepping for these interviews is so time consuming (ie was given a case and have to create a ppt deck for a 45 min presentation/interview). I'm so ready to leave but feel like I'll be stuck here forever because I'm too busy to look for something else. Tips?
Anyone working at Amazon in the Arlington area willing to talk about the PM role? Thanks!
