hi all- I am on h1b currently from india. unable to find visa slots in the next few months. can I bring my fiancé to USA ( she has b1/b2) visa and get married over here .?
Anyone who is on an H1B in consulting (strategy/ operations) tried visa transfer recently to Tech strategy roles? Wanted to understand if people have had a smooth sail or is there any reason to worry about timelines? Just can’t go on at McKinsey tbh. Thanks
Folks on H1, anyone taken a few months sabbatical? Any issues doing this while on this sad visa?
Recently joined PwC and submitted an expense report which got approved. How long does it take to get the deposit? Does it come with the paycheck or separately?
Anyone from AWS here? Could we expense mobile phones? Or only voice and data expense are covered?
Does Big4 hire ACCA individuals from international countries (they will not need visa sponsorship and would be legally authorized to work in USA).
When you went to the drive-thru at Sonic for the first time in years for a 50 cent corn dog only to have your credit card info stolen... Cruel world we live in.
Left PwC about a month ago. I cleared my expense buffer on Concur before leaving and then submitted any pending charges using the form issued by HR. However I still have an outstanding balance of 1K
Does your firm reimburse mileage related to driving into the office to work overtime on a weekend? EY does, how about the other firms?
What expense have you gotten away with

PSA for Allen Edmonds fans: if you have a personal AMEX Platinum card, you can get $50 back on $200+ of spend by 12/25. Must register on the “AMEX Offers” page or in the app.
Does anyone know if EY is doing premium processing for h1-b visa transfers? Also what are the chances of an h1-b transfer being denied? Thanks!
I have no credit history and am just out of undergrad making ~$100k. Any chance of me being approved for Citi Double Cash or Chase Freedom Unlimited? Do I need to get a “starter” card to build some credit first?
Everyone talks about pay in PE, what does it actually look like? Better than post-MBA MBB?
Looking to sign up for a points card in the UK- does anyone have a recommendation? Anyone have the Virgin Atlantic Reward+ MasterCard?
Don’t MBA programs most want the people who don’t need/want to go to business school (Private equity associates already making tons, successful startup founders, etc)? Seems like they don’t really want anyone who actually needs business school for their career.
Hey Fb friends - need an advise. My current firm hasn’t stated my GC process yet and with current processing time it appears to be somewhere around 12-15 months time to get PERM approved. In addition my current firm needs leadership approval & they make me sign a reimbursement form in case I quit. On other hand, I have approved i40 from my ex-employer (Big4) who fired me last fall, I don’t know if they will hire me back. Since I am from India and the date of filing appears like going to be…cont.
In terms of total comp, who do you think makes more: an EP at an agency or a mid level producer at a FAANG company?

On the Bloomberg Article about Faster Promotion/Pay Raises: Who at MS is trying to get your boy a job?! 😂
Since George Floyd's murder and the sudden Corporate America "wokeness," I (black guy) have been routinely contacted by unacquainted Partners who explicitly state something to the effect "Client X wants diversity, so we'd like you on this deal..." It really comes across as tone deaf and completely patronizing. I appreciate the efforts to diversity (albeit forced), but Partners really need to learn how to not be so supercilious in the approach. You don't have to overtly state that I'm the quota.
After 5 years of good ratings I was terminated from a regional CPA firm, but my last day is next month. Am I obligated to tell a prospective employer I was fired while I am technically still employed?
Hi Ladies, This is a lengthy post, about a family matter. I am seeking some advice from the sisterhood. I am a married mother of a boy who is in Pre-K. I have been married for 8 years now. Contd..

Thoughts on exiting to a FAANG L6 Strategy role or waiting until July for my impending promotion to manager? Do we think I can push the start date out to August?
Anyone at ATL Sky Club?
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
Opinions on what happening with Facebook and their poor employee outlook? What will FAANG be if Facebook hits the fan? NAAG?
There are several children in my classroom who keep having tech issues. How can I support them without taking away from instruction time?
O.M.G! My co-worker texts me about my boss (annoying person). I responded via Skype and vented, BUT I sent the message to my boss! The name was above my friend's!!
Hi all I’m meeting my supervisor/coworkers at a happy hour for the first time later this week after starting my first job post college completely virtual. I’m feeling pretty nervous about it since social situations/meeting new people were always hard for me even before COVID. Does anyone have any advice to help with this?
So we hired our own doctor to be on a firm wide WebEx about how COVID is ok. When pushed on whether the Dr would travel, he says “No.” LOL @ the idiocy of my firm.
