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.
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?
Is Accenture h1b dependent ?

I have 3/6 years left on my H1B and my employer is filing it now (switched jobs). Is that enough time?
MBB folks on H1-B who recently switched to FAANG - did you run into any issues with visa transfer? My transfer has been filed and I’m a bit nervous about USCIS’ perception of consultants and the current sentiment around H1-B visas.
Meeting with a recruiter at one of the FAANG companies. I won’t be able to move jobs because of H1b /GC at least for the next year. Any idea if I should start off with that or should I just try to understand the work that they have been doing?
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?
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.
If your visa appointment is auto canceled when you have a Emergency Request ongoing, do we need to reschedule our appointment and raise the EA again? Specifically asking for Indian consulates. Thanks in advance!
So after being thrown around like a ball at work, I finally got an offer from another company and accepted it. I’m stuck in the immigration process which is at least 2 months. I want to take back my..
What’s Deloitte’s green card policy?
EY 🐠, want some help understanding how’s the immigration support there? Is there a12 month waiting period before the GC process starts? TIA.
Dealing with Deloitte Immigration is equal to dealing with any DMV office. How about your firms - EY, KPMG, ACN, BDO et al?
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.
All my H1B friends, wondering if you guys went through a transfer/extension recently and if yes, the timeline for the process and if you received an rfe or not?
After flying coast to coast for a year, I got a mental breakdown yesterday and can't stop crying in my hotel room last night, I would like to get a new job with higher pay but visa limits my choices
Feeling stuck - how do you all stay patient and positive while waiting for whatever immigration stuff you're waiting for?
My Kellogg interview is in a couple days but I haven’t received a zoom link yet. Should I contact them tomorrow?
For my Deloitte 🐠 who left and had to pay back a retention bonus…how long were you able to string along D without repayment?
Hey fish fam, need an expectations level set. Ambassador status, staying at a St Regis for honeymoon. Concierge emailed to ask the occasion ahead of time, and we mentioned again at valet, check in, and breakfast - haven’t gotten anything other than “congrats.” No upgrade. No information at check in re: amenities or “rituals” (e.g., 3 days in found out that there is a daily bloody Mary tasting - would’ve been nice to know). Am I overreacting to have hoped for something, anything celebratory?
Friend interviewing for Account Manager role at EY, any tips for the final in-person interviews? Thanks
If you were to randomly take any CPA exam tomorrow with no prep. Do you as an experienced accountant think you will pass?
Anyone leave before their bonus (before knowing what the amount was) and then regret it when it turned out to be a huge bonus? Got a great offer that I want to take but feeling FOMO by leaving the bonus on the table. And yes, I tried moving the start date and asking them to cover the lost bonus but they said no and it’s still a better offer and it would be irresponsible not to take it.
If you’re a non-MBB consultant without a top GPA or top 10 undergrad, do you basically have 0 chance at HSW? Curious of the profiles of those who made it with these factors.
We have Netflix in FAANG, yet don’t see much discussion about the company. What’s up with it?
Deloitte GPS Manager - 3rd year with MBA. Guidehouse reached out. Is $165K base for a MC role laughable or doable?
Anyone advice on whether MBA is worth it for me? Previously consultant at T2 firm. Currently make $125k base (~$140 TC) in strategy at CPG. Interested in working in food tech. 25, female, 3 yoe, went to top 20 undergrad (non-ivy). Would be targeting M7 or similar. A little discouraged by average comp I’ve seen for post mba CPG roles even from HBS, etc.
Does anyone else feel like management likes to make staff the butt of every joke? It’s pretty much locker room talk every time staff spend time with management (lunch, travel, etc).

Are there some things or types of work you all did at your firm that might help with MBA admissions? Beyond the actual “work”? Thanks!
Being headhunted for a few portfolio ops / research roles at growth equity firms. Thoughts on prestige for MBA admissions? Is it worth it to move or stay in consulting (kearney / s& tier)
Which firms offer Day 1 Green Card Process? I know there is FAANG, Microsoft, Twitter... any others? Thanks!
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?
How do you balance interviews with fieldwork? You can only have so many doctors appointments.
