Need credit card advice - what would you recommend if I don’t plan on using my points to travel and most of my spending is on groceries, going out to bars and restaurants, and online shopping? Currently use the Uber card which has significantly declined in value since I got it. Thank you!
Hi all, my H1 visa was stuck at transferred to a different office for two month. However, it miraculously turned 180 the past two days and got approved, yes, within 2 days. I was really anxious before this so I just wanted to share it with other ppl who are still waiting for your approval. It will happen soon. Hang in there.
Anyone heard about the eb5 visa category? Looking for options for my younger brother who's not in IT
Anyone here who started their consulting careers later in life? Always seeing posts about how young people make it to P... wondering about the other stories. I started as a C at 29 (yes, unfortunately, I fall into the bucket of exp hire hired at a lower level...), made M at 33. Doing well but also feeling like I’m already too old to aim to be a P. Hoping for some perspectives.
Have anyone heard about Deloitte & Associates? They are handling my H1b transfer. Are they good?
Hey folks, Has anyone transferred their H1B to another employer? How did it go, eg did you need to stop working / leave the country/ anything else? How long does it take? Anyone with a Green card in process - has it affected you in any way? Thanks!
Is Accenture h1b dependent ?
Curious question: Selected in this year lottery but for “h1b change of status cap subject FY2021”. I was planning to change company if h1b is approved this year(oct 1). Does this email subject line above means that I have to wait until next year October(2021) in order for my h1b to be officially approve and to change company? 😰
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?
Currently with ACN in SEA, but looking to move to Australia in a year for better WLB. Anyone who's done this through Accenture or other firms? Any recommendations on how to approach this - PR/Visa, direct applications for jobs there etc.?
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.
I have 3/6 years left on my H1B and my employer is filing it now (switched jobs). Is that enough time?
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.
I’m 24 and my bank account is still connected to my parents. They did this to give me their Chase Private Client perks. Is there any reason or advantage to keep it like this? I want to start my own
Afraid of my chase account being closed. If you were to transfer UR Points and had no option otherwise, what/where would you transfer your points? Approx 200,000 UR points, not the most but don't wanna lose them haha
What's the best consulting firms for H1B folks who have studied masters in STEM here? Got a cousin graduating this fall and he needs to know H1B/GC policies.
Anyone else lose a bit of motivation in consulting? Offering strategic recommendations and then walking away to join a new client? I miss working on issues in industry and seeing how my work is improving program performance :/
Tear of joy, this bowl is my baby I created 😢

Hi ladies - I’m 29, my husband & I are planning to start TTC in a few months. I’ve been diagnosed by pcos when I was 17 and I’ve been on birth control ever since due to irregular periods.
