Does anyone here know where I can find information related to Deloitte's policy for certification reimbursement? Particularly which certs you can charge straight to the AMEX vs ones you cannot?
Leaving Deloitte...have Amex with about 500k points. I believe this card would be cancelled and I never really use it...any feedback on what to do with points?
Hi! For people who have started with EY US recently, how long did it take you from signing the offer, completing background check, to transferring H1B visa? I'm supposed to start in mid-Jan and trying to gauge the timeline so I can put in notice with my current company and plan other stuff. Given that holiday is coming and EY immigration seems pretty slow. TIA!
Hoping to have parents visit US next year . Currently they have a visa that will expire on April 1 and they would ideally want to avoid the winter. That said, does anyone know how long extensions are taking (as in appointment availability?). Thanks

She’s in status but we’re trying to renew her tax ID and the form is asking for her visa expiration date. Anyone been through that? Can we input the petition number Instead? Thanks in advance!
If you work from the US remotely while you’re on B1/B2 visa (no residency in the US, spending couple of months only), are you obligated to pay income taxes in the US?
Hey Fam, quick urgent question - Has anyone here travelled to India on e-tourist visa over the past month? My wife has an e-tourist visa approved on Oct 22, and we have an Air India flight booked in a week from SF -> Delhi. Just wondering if e-tourist visas are now allowed via the air bubble pact between India and the US? Thanks a lot in advance for all the guidance!
Hi all, I ‘m trying to decide if I should get a travel focused new credit card. When booking travel via the Chase or Capital One sites can you book packages like you can on an Orbitz type site?

Anyone uses Chase Private Banking services? Recently received an invitation but wondering if its useful?
What CC should I use to book my car rental for personal travel (using corporate code), can I use my corporate Amex for the protection benefits?
This horse has been beaten to death but suggestions on Amex Plat vs Brilliant for Marriott loyalists? I already have Gold that gives 4X on dining and supermarkets (my biggest expenses) and don’t wanna part with that. No I don’t want CSR, thank you.
Anyone think CSR worth it if you have left consulting? I have left consulting as of today. Primarily, evaluating only from a financial perspective.
Has anyone at Deloitte maxed out their H1B while waiting for perm approval? Does Deloitte put you on a LOA and change you to a B1/ B2 visa?
After nearly 2 years on the job, I am traveling to the client site for the first time next week to begin a 6 month assignment. What do you consider the best travel credit card? I plan to book my weekly flights, my hotel room and order all food with it. Thanks!
Does Fidelity have Zelle? I transferred my assets to Chase to avoid long transfer times as they use to be in Schwab, but I see Schwab has Zelle now. Does Fidelity?
During the difficult time, be mindful while going out for protest. Being an immigrant, it’s a high risk for your visa renewal. There is ongoing police activity and probability of getting your name in police record, which will impact your visa renewal. Be careful and stay safe and don’t do anything which is unlawful in a foreign country (not that you do unlawful in your home country).
Might try to fly across the United States (so like 6 hours) with my dog (service dog) for the first time on United. Anything I should know on bringing a service dog on a plane (I see I have to fill out a US dep’t of travel form but there doesn’t seem to be much other info online, like what proof I might need that my dog is a service dog, if any)? Also any tips if it’s the dog’s first time flying (I’d think my dog would be quite anxious given that it’s quite a different experience)?
Every time I get staffed on a new project I still look up hotels near the client site to get a sense of what the project life would be like if it weren’t for Covid.

Interviewing for BIE II role at Amazon-NY, how much reasonable TC range for this position?(break down). MS with 9 Yrs Work exp. TY
(1/2) I started a new job less than a month ago at a large firm with a significant pay increase. I work remotely- which is a special arrangement. They paid for my travel to their headquarters for in-person training. After interacting with my manager and some of the attorneys, I feel like I made a mistake. Manager is demeaning and rude. A bunch of the attorneys dropped not so subtle hints that people who work from home are causing all kinds of problems. I don’t know what to do.
History lesson on the streets of NYC
Hi Fishes, I joined FIS global recently. What are benefits of National pension scheme - employer contribution at FIS ? Any idea? Also where we can use meal card? FIS
I think I’m falling for my mother in law. The feelings aren’t necessarily sexual in nature. They seem to be much deeper and emotional feelings—which I get would concern my wife more so than sexual feelings. It doesn’t help that everyone thinks my MIL finds me to be her “favorite” in addition to some other complicating nuances. Obviously, I won’t act on these feelings, but as the years go by, the closer we’re going to get since she’s around a lot and we talk quite often when we’re alone.
How to know if you’re not made for consulting? Dont see manager promotion happening as I hate people pleasing and talking. I am a huge introvert. A product manager role in tech might be better. Thots?

Hey ladies! I’m working on a business concept focused on women in business who travel (pre-COVID, of course).

I dont know about you guys, but the Naya Rivera news hit me hard.. and I didnt even know who she was. Dont ever take your life for granted, we arent promised tomorrow 🙌🏽 Makes you also think how we can get desensitised to hearing the # of DAILY deaths due to covid.. Remember that they too were fighting for their lives and have left behind devastated loved ones.
Any BAP Staff 1's at EY had their Compensation Call yet? Interested in what the raises will look like.
Are any of you CDs that were promoted to GCDs at small to mid-size agencies where the creative department is not technically divided into groups? If so, what added responsibilities were assigned to you with the promotion? I don’t work at a large agency with the traditional pyramid structure of a GCD having multiple CDs on specific accounts reporting to him/her. I work on 14 accounts.
