I accepted a job offer at a start up in December; they told me that they would apply for GC on a case-by-case basis and usually after the employee has been there for at least 6 months. The company just filed my I-129 with USCIS on a premium processing yesterday. When I accepted the job offer, my current company paused their GC processing. I realized today that my current company has resumed GC application. Should I consider staying with the firm? My reason for leaving is job opportunity & growth

A 2 months stint isn't going to help you with that many opportunities unless you have some convincing reasons you jump ship so often.

So you're saying I should stay with current employer to start the GC? I haven't put in my resignation letter yet

Hi Fishes, I need help with this scenario. I have notice period of 90 days, the money you say 90 days, HR won't agree to move forward, so I told I will get release in 60 days. Now HR is saying they need a written mail with last working day mentioned for after 60 days and then only they will generate the offer letter.
Any suggestions

Wipro walo, I have joined on last month, 11th July. I am working in South African shift timings. I am entitled to get Rs 2500 per month as shift allowance, but I didn't get it for last month. On speaking to one of our senior members, he said shift assignment only takes place between 1st to 10th of every month. So it will be assigned this month and will also receive last month shift allowance pay as arrear. Is this true ? Where can I check whether my manager has assigned me a shift or not ?

Best books/podcasts on leadership you’ve read/heard? Thank you!

Hi my IBM sharks..

So I joined IBM five months back and just a week back I got a project.

Since my shift is 11:30 am - 8:30 pm, I started clocking in my hours in Workday from previous Monday for shift allowance and its pending for approval with my people manager.

Guys can you tell me when should we contact our manager by the end of every week or by the end of the month to get the entered time approved on Workday?

Secondly, does the people manager approve it or the project manager?

H1 extension filed in July. Changed to premium in August and received by uscis on aug 29th. Tomorrow is the 15th calendar day but no update yet. Anyone in a similar boat? Case center - Vermont

Hello Fishes,
I need your help/advice. I’m currently at the stage of filling my PERM case and my lawyer is asking me to provide all the employment verification letters before he files the case. I was able to get most of them but one of my employers (outside of the US) is not willing to sign the letter for some reason (HR). I tried to reach out to my previous managers but they are not reachable and all retired (it’s from 10 years back..). Not sure what to do.. any advice/feedback?
Thanks all!!


Hi Fishes! H1 expires in April- planning to travel in November or Dec for stamping. Is this too close? Will it be an issue at port of entry? Or should I plan my stamping earlier than this?


Went to two different state for around 3 weeks combined. The projects didn’t materialize immediately and I wasn’t staffed on them. However, I have line items on my paycheck for tax withholding. CONT

H1B transfer receipt notice 3/10 to Texas Service Center. Can someone please share their experience with Texas center? I heard it’s the slowest of the lot...


What tax return software do you use when you are working under OPT with F1 Visa, as a nonresident alien? Looking for recommendations. Thanks ☺️


Has anyone gotten a h1b visa stamping from a different location (eg Canada, Mexico, Dubai, Jamaica etc) to get the visa stamped and travel into USA. I am stuck in India for over 8 weeks now and looking to explore options. No Dropbox appointment seems to be available (or goes away by the time I login)


Does your company pay for the fees for any OPT filing or OPT extension (~$400)?


How long did it take for the I-131 to get approved? Is 7 months a reasonable assumption or did it take much longer?


If someone has an appointment for first time H1B with an approved I797A with company A and goes for an appointment for stamping (I797A from company A). Meanwhile that person receives a job offer from company B and H1B transfer process has started while they went for an interview. Would there be any issues while doing the stamping interview?

PS: The person is still employed with company A at the time of the interview.


What’s the green card policy at PWC? I am currently a senior at EY and my h1b will max out in Sep 2023 and don’t have i140 yet. If I join PWC as a senior, how long do I need to wait until they can start the green card process and do I still have enough time lol?


HR1044/S386 is dead. Like if you hope they never pick it up for consideration in 2021. Diversity is our strength!! We need diverse immigrants. Diverse! Not from a single country...


My PERM was applied in Jan but haven’t heard back. Anyone in the same boat?


Which companies (industry) are sponsoring H1b transfer?


Honest question. Why are all of EY’s Visa and Immigration contacts absolute trash? No regard for the stress we experience. If I get another out of office response, I’m going to jump out of the window


I have about one year left on my H1B and Deloitte is no way near to file my I- 140 in that time - do you think I can change firms at this time? Any recommendations on next steps?


H1bs cannot be furloughed or go on a reduced work schedule?


(Serious) My employment is due to end in August since I didn’t get H1B selection, but I really want to stay in NYC. What can be done? Need help. Would talking to lawyers be helpful?
